Just curious how many hrs people put in when there are just running the business. IE: no mowing, cleanups, aerations, etc. Just basically giving quotes and make sure employee are doing what they need to. The reason I ask is because Im in position to own a few major franchises that will make me extremely financially fit within the next 5 yrs and probably be able to retire by age 40-45. The down side is a lot more headaches, more stress, etc. Im not sure if thats what I really want to do though. So right now Im just trying to get about 5-10 accounts this year to handle myself and then hopefully have 1 or 2 guys run everything the next few years with 50+ accounts. Not looking to make tons of money after paying the employees and expenses, but if I decide that the francise isnt worth it, I would like to start working hands on with the mowing to make a decent living.
