    Anyone out there mow part-time and work another job? I deliver pizza in the evening. All the potential profit from the lawn service just goes back in to get bigger, newer equipment. I own my service and have 2 employees, me + myself.. Total: me myself and I. Heard that one on Giligans Island.

    You'll find that the majority of the members here work a full time job and mow part time.

    Full time paramedic, part time LCO. The sad thing is I make more money mowing. Go figure.

    Full time SAR flight paramedic, part time street paramedic, part time (sometimes seems more like full time) LCO. Looking to S-L-O-W-L-Y make the transition to full time LCO in the next 3 years & still ride the truck part time for fun.
