    My story is really just beginning. I started selling firewood in the winter to make it through college. Then, my grandma asked me to cut her yard for $40. I did that for a year with a push mower. The next year I bought a Craftsman, picking up 2 more yards. 2 years later I bought a Toro walk behind and now cut 10 with out advertising. I am bidding on my first commercial account this winter, and I am going to advertise hot and heavy next year with the hope of going full-time in a year or two. I learned more on this forum then any where else. Thanks for all the advise.
