    This weekend. Got 2 new lawns. My question is when do I get to quit my job? Did you guys wait till you broke even or just have enough monthly cash flow to cover liabilties?

    It's August. Where were your flyers in March? We pass out 20000 flyers every year. For the last 15 years. Are you looking for beer money, or a career?

    ncls, do you and your crew pass out the flyers yourselves or do you hire it out? I'm wanting to do about 10K next spring and am trying to figure out the best way to get it done.

    Take it easy you over achiever. Don't know what it is like in your part of Florida but things have been pretty slow here. Usually am turning down 5 to 7 accounts during the season a week. This year have done maybe 5 whole est. Heck I may have to get a real job to support my lawn mowing addiction.

    We pass out some. We hire Boy Scout troops to pass out some. We hire church groups to pass out some. Any non profit group will do the leg work for cheap.

    Being outside of Cleveland, we have a couple of companies that pass out fliers for a living. If I print them, they pass them out for about 350.00 per 5000.
