    Hey Guys, I am a firefighter/paramedic in Florida just starting my businees. I have experience working for several years with a friend of mine's lawn company and have really learned alot and want to venture out on my own. With my work schedule I can still schedule and work full time in this industry and of course there is plenty of work out there in Florida. I have done all my homework and set everything up legal. I officially started in November and have picked up five monthly residential accounts and one Commercial Bank contract servicing three seperate branches.

    I have read alot of your post's over the last several months and have also learned alot from you guys. I already had all my commercial equipment that I had bought several years ago just to service my yard. Other than advertising and operating exspenses I have no overhead. Which has made it easier!!!!!

    Glad to meet everyone and I hope to talk to you guy's soon!
