    Yep late for the season but I done it without owing money so no biggie. Now I posted a little while ago about haveing customers first or buy equipment and most people said buy equipment then worry about customers. However I do have 3 customers but I would like to have about 40. Also I am not reliant upon the money from mowing. I am doing this as a supplement income and hopefully to expand and grow the business but maintain my full time job also.

    Um, what should he do when he DOES get customers? Cut the grass with a scissors until his mower comes in after waiting for 2 weeks?
