    I've been mowing for a number of years now and plan to sell my business when I graduate from college. I've been keeping track of my gross Income and keeping receipts since January of this year. I plan on selling around Aug. 06. I currently have over 30 customers and maintain about 35 properties. At UF I learned a # of ways to value a business, mostly based on cash flows. I was just wondering if there was a standard pricing approach that is used in this industry.
