Just wondered how some of you guys started out in the first few years. We are doing this part time now, and for our first year (started in July) we have 4 regular weekly mowing jobs. Doesn't sound like a lot, but we wanted to see how to handle everything first (taxes, licenses, insurance, billing, etc.) next year we are going to set our goal for 10 lawns. Most of our work has been in the extras (bushes, clean ups, etc.) and just wondered how you guys started out. Our goal, long term looks a little like 1st year 4 lawns 2nd year 10 lawns 3rd year 25 lawns 4th year 60.... slowly growing until we can support the business as our full time income. any thoughts are appreciated! Yeah, and I know 4 lawns is not much, but like I said, we are trying to only take on what we can handle at this time. We want to do it right, and grow slowly, so we don't over-grow, and fail.
