    Hey all, I was just hoping for some advice on starting my own business. I have several years of experience but only one account of my own. I have a Walker mower, stihl line trimmer, and a hand held blower. I also have a truck (dodge dakota and a small 5x8 tractor supply special trailer. I feel like I basically have a decent amount of equipment to start with and grow with. My problem is I d not know what the best way to get new accounts is. What have you all found that works best? Also regarding commercial properties, how do you know when a property is going to start accepting bids, and how do you price commercial properties? Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

    Newspaper ads get the best response but you won't have a tight route, at least at first.
