    I may be getting out of the business. I just bought a whole bunch of new stuff. But I really need to focus on school and music. My grades were really slipping last year, so i think it may be time to let go. I will still plow during the winter time. I also got a job working in sales at the local power equip dealer. At the end of the fall, I might have a whole bunch of equip up for sale.

    Why it looks like your doing good. Nice logo nice equip. A smart head for business in my opinion can take you alot farther than a 4 year degree, and music forget about it if you want to make any money. I am a drummer, wanted to go to berkley school of music. But I am a equipment / Truck junkie also. Landscaping is a gateway to a vast sea of different businesses, build your business and you will be able to get into other areas be it green indesty related or not. Musicians make NO MONEY unless you are a music teacher, or you play for The Red Hot CHili Peppers.

    Go to school and finish what you started. Do sales on the side in the cold A/C and feel refreshed when you get home to study. Lets be real if you miss the manual labor and all the other crap that goes along with this business just buy your self a mower,trailer and a weed whacker and place your add in the local paper and whamo your back in the game. :dizzy:

    I am just flat out sick of mowing. So maybe ill just focus in on hardscape, and Landscape. I am going to school for both right now.

    Why don't YOU focus on the landscaping and hardscaping end and hire a crew to focus on the mowing and weekly maintnence end. From seeing your pictures with your stripe, you customers should be happy with your work. I just hire 2 people and let them work that end of the route. This way, it gives you time to expand your horizons and work the landscaping end of your company where you said your happier! JMO
