I've been doing neighborhood yards since I was about 13 and when I got my license last year expanded a little with a pushmower and had up to 8 jobs at one time...a couple being commercial (neighbor's companies). With the crappy equipment I had (WEEDEATER everything and a 15 y.o. mower) I was so frustrated with it all the time that I almost quit mowing but I had few choices before I could drive so I kept at it. In the past year I've been upgrading stuff and will be purchasing a Gravely wb very soon. Since I've experienced working for minimum wage I've come to enjoy mowing a whole lot. I love working for myself and got to cut with a friend for a while that already has a pretty successful lawn business and I really enjoyed it. So now my dream is kinda to end up getting big one day and having a succesful lawncare business. I'm definatly going to college and all but I want to ask the pros this: Would if you could go back to the beginning would you do something else? Any regrets? I mean there probably isn't too big of a chance for me to make a good living off of this from the way I see it but I'd like to do it. Cliffsnotes: Should I try to get a "normal" job out of college or persue owning and operating a lawncare in hopes of it being successful?
