    I started a few years ago (about 13 then) used to have 2 lawns I mowed for about 10 bucks a chop. Now I mow my 2 neighbors and my parents. This year I plan to buy a real wb mower right now I am using either my dads hydro 42'' wb or my moms 21'' self propelled craftsman that doesn't even propel it own self. So my friend and I might start working together to make some extra cash for a jet ski and stuff. Any suggestions or comments would be great.

    I think its great that you are thinking about expanding at a young age,i mean you could be playing xbox and free loading off your parents or even worse hanging on the corners doing nothing. My only suggestion is that you be on the up & up and be honest and fair and the benefits will come,don't fall into the poor work,not dependable,high priced,not professional who cares just pay me catergory and you will do just fine!!

    Sounds good, don't lowball, act professional, and provide a good service. What kind of jetski? Sea-doo all the way for me!

    Not to get off topic but I would be gettting a Stand up Jet Ski possibly a Kawasaki or a Yamaha but I won't be worrying about that until summer. My lake just started to freeze over.
