thanks for the replay. really helpful. I have a friend that is wanting to buy into the business from start up. I don't really want to do that because of all the reasons you mentioned, the only advantage is that this person could bring a good amount of money to buy into the business. One more problem is that although this person has more money than me, I hold all the knowledge and experience with mowing and the industry. I have a 2 year degree in golf course management, and a degree in Marketing and Business management, I hold all the knowledge and experience, he has money to invest. Thanks again for the replay back. I Like the enzo quote.
