    Bobbygedd has a rating he uses in the lawn industry to rate your self were you are today and if you will be successful. It's called the school bus, meaning were you are at in your business.The front is of the bus is : a completely legit business, and the back of the bus is: the guy with the lawn mower sticking out of his trunk... i'm sitting in the middle right now! I need my applicators license to be able to be more productive! Were do you sit???
