Hi all, First off, I would like to say how much I enjoy these forums. I have gained alot of valuable information here. I do need some help, though. I am wanting to start my lawn care business, next season. I want to give myself enough time to get ALL my ducks in a row. I have read about alot of guys who have started GREAT company's with just a mower, in the back seat of a Chevy Chevette. I commend you all on your Great success. I would just like to start my company a little different. I would like to have some money saved, my insurance, and all my legal stuff ready,( LLC., licenses, ect). I do need help with a business plan. I know a business plan is something that is about an individual business, and they don't really have a "generic" business plan. I am also looking for some sort a mentor, who is not necessary successful, because how do you define success? I am looking for someone who is interested in teaching and helping someone in this lucrative business. Thanks again and I look forward to all the posts.
