    If the 1/2 that you wack includes Bobby, I believe you better re-think your plan. Bobby is a pro wacker and I don't think your shovel is big enough.

    But the stories that we would read about it would be great.

    realistickly, there's not much you can do. i thought about turning in every non licensed aplicator i saw, and every tax evader i saw...but guess what, it would never make a difference. that's why you will never make GREAT money doing this. if you do it right, you can make GOOD money, and reap the other benefits. this is why it is VERY VERY important NOT TO EDUCATE YOUR COMPETITORS. it is to my benefit when joe schmo loses half his clients lawns every year because he can't identify/prevent fungus, or because he doesn't know when to properly fertilize, or how to treat nutsedge, or why his lawns are having brown spots in mid july. you have to have some kind of barrier between you and your competitors, this barrier has to be knowledge and consistancy, THERE IS NOTHING ELSE, unless of course you want that barrier to be your pricing, and i don't want that.

    This is probably one of the best posts that BG has made. In othere words the best possible way to grow your buisness is educate yourself and besides at 21 yrs old I doubt you got the JUICE to whack half of the LCO's in Jersey so FAGETABOUTIT.
