    My goal is to make as much money as possible with the least accounts possible. You guys crack me up with all this talk of trying to reach 200 or 300 accounts. If you have that many accounts after just a couple of years you are not charging enough! In my area the biggest companies with the most accounts usually make the least profit.

    I don't know what other areas charge but here we charge $.10 a square foot for grass cutting alone.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. With all these places I don't know when I'll find time to have a few beer lol.
