Hello all. I have been coming to this site every day for the last couple months trying to muster up the courage to finally go for it. Well two weeks ago I decided to go full speed ahead. I ordered some flyers, a shirt, a yard sign, and a car magnet from Vista Print. Wife let me use $2k from the savings to buy a 89' Dodge Dakota, and my uncle gave me a weedeater push mower with a Briggs&Stratton motor. He also gave me a Toro trimmer that he said was commercial but the model has long been worn off. I set out last Friday and only put out 20 or so of the 100 flyers I bought and was doubtful that this "lawn thing" was going to work, but I had my hopes. Well the very next day I had a guy beggin for me to come because it was his wives birthday and he had to have the lawn cut. The same day I had three more people call while I was busy with his. So within 4 days I had already cut 4 lawns, and today I was called again to do a bid. To celebrate I had to go get a Self Propelled 190cc Honda exite mower. This thing is a BEAST!! Wife is happy, Im ecstatic, and I really think this is going to work. Oh by the way, I am in Fayetteville, NC, a Staff Sergeant in the Army, and is 6 years from retirement.
