I have been in the lawn business for 3 years now and have been presented with a difficult issue, a buyout. Just to give a little background, I own a mow and go service here in the metroplex and have about 85 customers. Some have been with me since I started, some are new, however none are on contracts. A friend of mine, who is always looking for investments, asked if I would sell him my entire business and sign a two year non-compete clause for $8,500 cash including my equipment(about $2000 worth). I told him I would think about it but I just dont know. I will gross about $55,000 this year. I have been thinking of getting out of the business, but on the other hand I have been thinking about growing it. What do you guys suggest or just tell me whether its worth it or not. Thanks!
