    Madness? Are you really worried about about a kid taking any of your accounts?

    I'm pretty sure that 90% of my customers are so loyal to me that they would never think of hiring anyone else, as long as I continue providing high-quality service.

    And $5. . .so what if Lance gets three or four lawns for the summer? More power to him. . . you have to give the kid credit for actually working during the summer.

    Now, I would still tell Lance to increase his minimum by about 500 - 600% :laugh:

    He says starting at $5.00. Do you think he has ever charged $5.00 for an entire job? After all, how is he going to pay for that advertising campaign?
