    Yes, I know I'm not going to get all these accounts like that. I have some lined up for next year already. I've walked nieghborhood after niegboorhood going door to door. There seems to be one large service around here that really does a bad job and I am picking up alot of there accounts latly. It seems everytime I go around a nieghboorhood I get atleast one account and I always do the best I can so I get a couple more there. It takes a good month for every ten accounts picked up I would imagin but once I get one account everyone wants me to mow. Becuse I got a couple extra yards this fall and more people called me and I just had to say no becuse I still only had a push mower :hammerhead: Exmark Viking comeing soon though. . . used but works.

    I have about 26 lawns every week plus 3 that are as needed. I mow Wednesday through Friday and landscape on Monday and Tuesday. July 1st was my one year anniversary.

    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
