    Glad i'm legit!

    My employees just got interviewed yesterday, while at the job site, by the NJ department of Labor! Seems they are looking for landscapers in NJ who are not reporting employee wages and paying into Unemployment and Disability Insurance taxes!

    LOOK OUT GUYS!!!

    Great to hear this...I hope all of them doing business under the table get caught too. Then there will be less competition as I see it and the only guys I will have to compete with (if you call it that), are the legit outfits. I friggin' tired of hearing how the last guy was doing a $75 lawn for 40 bucks.

    Gee I wonder why...btw, Rob is not far from you BG.

    This comment is unrelated but I saw all of you are from NJ. Im located in southern NJ.

    Im trying to get started a business and will be trying to pick up odd jobs until spring time. I want to do leaf removal, what time should I start going door to door asking if they want my business. Now or in a week or later?

    Any other tips would be most appreciated. Im tired of working 9-5 at a desk job and want to become successful at something I like to do.
