    Oh, I see LOL, I just asked you for that info in an email I just now sent you.
    Oh well, I hope you see this before you open your email lol,

    I will keep your name on my list, I know a few people who live down there from our church. If any ever ask me about coming down there, i will give them your name, cause I don't go that far south....

    Yeah, I hear that.....I feel the same way, but I just make very good money being an electrician. But I just laid off Nov. 13Th and the work out look here is very slow. Slower than its ever been in a long long time. They say it will be a year or more before it gets to my number so I am just going to hit this lawn care real hard this year and take advantage of being laid off and build this up.

    I was going to hire another helper for next year to help my other guy, now it will be me LOL...But maybe its not a bad deal cause I have a whole year to get it up to where I have enough to keep two guys going all day five days..

    But I have to get them all reeled in first LOL. I'm really getting aggressive next spring with advertising.

    I'm getting 5000 door hangers, 5000 post-it notes, 50 mugs with logo printed on them, adds in two south side papers for 16 weeks, and shirts, hats....
    web page....
    Also looking at an answering service with live operator to take my calls when I am mowing and cant hear them....

    I have found that when people call you for an estimate and just get your voice mail, they just hang up and call the next guy on the list. I have looked on caller ID and called them right back, and some are too late and some will have me come out...
