ok, good thing? bad thing? should i? shouldnt i? OH NO QUESTIONS!!!!!!! well with only a week or two left of school, and a entire winter plus some of learning (from here mainly), i think im ready to take a jump in life! two years ago i took a jump and bought my craftsman mower blower tractor and weedwacker. that year i made $50+ a week. that winter i made $300!!!! now i am sure u are saying thats nothing i make that in a day. yes im well aware of that, at that time transportation was limited and i was only working on my street. this past year i have been doing my learning, from u guys, all the magazines, the firefighters that are landscapers, on the farm, and wherever else possible. So i got my first step of getting basic equipment, and second of learning. This year so far i have not taken on any jobs yet, things have changed then they were two years ago. mom has a van that she doesnt really care if it gets mud in it, her boyfriend has a jeep that will soon have a tow hitch, i plan to soon get a small trailer (trust me want a 16' but no where to put it and dont think jeep should pull one). I also soon plan to purchase new weedwacker and also a used walkbehind, once i have this i feel confident that i can manage a few good size yards and a higher level then some teen cutting lawns with a push mower. mean time what i have will do. major questions and concerns for me. from what it sounds a lot of u guys have licenses, certifications etc etc. As a 15 year old soon to be 16 what can i get?(b) what do i have to do to make STS Lawn Care a real business? (/b) i got the jackets, hats, business cards, software for accounting and all, but feel there is more i need? One thing i do want to tell u is i have great skills with microsoft small business and other softwares doing invoices, billing, and money management of different sorts. I am very mature and know the difficulties in the field very well, hard work, drought, nasty customers, im ready for it, i dont believe in sitting in air conditioning all day. Basically what do i have to do to ge on the roll?
