    Welcome to the site, and good luck with the business.
    You'll find ton's of good advice from good people on here, so use it to the best of your ability. There is endless amounts of knowledge, and a lot of fun here too. Good place to compare, and get great criticism on some of your plans.
    Good luck!

    Welcome aboard, I just joined yesterday myself and found so much useful information. I swear, I learned more on this site in the past 2 days then I did in 4 years of high school!:D

    I am from Owosso, Michigan, over between Lansing and Flint. I am a newbie this year too, getting my business going. For such a small town of 20,000 residents, there are about 10 lawn care companies in my area. Gonna be a dogfight. If I had done this idea back when I graduated high school in 1997 like I wanted to, I would be so far ahead of the game in my area. There were 2 companies back then. Now I have lots of competition. However, I dont think any of them know a thing about this site! I think it is gonna come in handy so much, I cant wait for the grass to start growing. Good luck RBP. :p
