    Where are you going to school? I will be a sophomore at MSU. I have 80 clients in the Royal Oak area, but made my schedule so I can work Tuesday, Thursday-SUnday, although I wont be able to keep this up as I continue to grow. I'd love to hear how you also cope with work and school.

    Ill be a senior at MSU. Being in the business school they only have one or two sections of certain classes so my schedule isn't as free this year and being a senior I don't want to spend my first semester driving back and forth three times a week as I have been the last two years.

    Unfortunately for me the business paid for school. Without the business no school. Eventually it was, grow the business, or school. Without the business I didn't have any money for school so it became purchase more equipment and be more efficient, or limp along at school. I bought some equipment. It is ironic though, now I pay people to work and they use the money to pay for school. Maybe someday I can go back. I don't know. If you can afford to go to school, do it full time, and get it done quicker while also enjoy being a student. That's the way to go. Just don't get trapped in your business you want to try to be on top of it.

    I was lucky enough to have a schedule now with Tuesday off and 8 am's Thursday and Friday. It's definitely tricky situations for us. Hope all goes well. And congrats- I'll be a sophomore finance major

    I know it is seem early but I am already thinking about fall clean up. We bought a dump trailer this year and not sure how I should set it up with the leaf loader. Does anybody have any good systems, ideas, or tips on what not to do?
    Thanks in advance

    If you are in the market for a leaf loader I have a couple Billy Goat 16 HP units I may sell since we don't use them any longer.

    Hey guys if your in the market for trailers take a look at this, they are only a couple miles from my house and I know trailers are a bit harder to come by in Michigan http://www.trailersalesofmichigan.com/utility_trailers.php, they make them right here. I've had mine for 2 years now and abused the crap out of it.
