    Economics BA I love the pure capitalism of the lawn business. You can make as much $$ as you are willing to give up your time for!!

    I transferred from UW madison to School of Hard Knocks about 15 years ago, still working on a degree. LOL
    I love that you don't need a degree in this industry to do good work and make some money.
