    I pulled into a gas station with my truck trailer and mower. A guy in a Lexus SUV is getting gas and asks me if I do personal yards. I stated yes sir and gave me a business card. He stated to me me that his 1.5 acre was over grown and needed it cut. I did the job yesterday $200.00 and just under 4 hours later. I will do 1 time cuts for people if I can fit them in.

    Did you give him YOUR card too? It helps with call backs. :cool2:

    I had a clean up call 3 weeks ago, did the job left a card and wrote "thanks for your business -mnglocker" got a call yesterday and they finally got sick of the yard looking like crap and agreed to have me on a regular basis now. $$$ :)
