    This will be my first year in the business. I will be a one man operation. I have a 36" walk behind, a stihl blower and trimmer. I have a FT job right now that pays well, I just want some extra income on the side. I'm only looking to have 5-10 accounts this year. (All residentail ranging from $25-$50.) What are realistic profits for a first timer? Any advice would be appreciated.

    roughly guesstimating... could be anywhere from $3k-12k
