    How many just mowing (and trimming) accounts do you have? How many did you have the first day you started business? How many did you have at the end of the first season? How many new accounts do you obtain per year?

    (0) to start
    (54) to end

    I do quite a bit of landscaping / miscellaneous services to fill in the gaps.

    Started with 10 my first year when I was 16.

    At 22, I was up to 130 with 7 guys working for me.

    Now I'm 34 and back to working solo, doing 40 / week and pocketing more with less headaches.

    by end of my first year I had 23. Begining of this year so far around 100, some accounts with multiple properties. This year should be interesting, had 1 guy working for me last year and it was a real headache. Going to 4 guys with me this year, if my problems multiply by 4 I'm downsizing.

    I have around 32 accounts and I'm going into my 12th season.

    It's not about how many accounts you have or even how much money you make.

    It's about are you happy doing what you're doing and are you setting goals in your life and reaching them.
