    Hello

    I'm starting in the mowing business very soon and need hints on the right stuff for advertising, by the way is anybody here from Australia? As I noticed allot of you from USA, anyway I am going to get some flyers and business cards done, even thinking of the radio because its pretty cheap here. Anyway is there any free templates or something I could work from that anybody could provide me with just as a guide?

    Thank You

    Cool a fellow aussie. I'm from Cooma. I bought a Nissan patrol the other day, I am going to use that, it has no sit in the back so loads of room. Later on I will get a trailer and can you tell me what sort of insurance you need?
