    What's the blue van behind that one? So you think you're going to be getting 200+ accounts this year? Seems a little high lol

    Looks very nice! All digital vinyl?

    Any reason you listed it as lawn Keeping instead of lawn maintenance? Never heard it called that before

    Housekeeping...Lawnkeeping that's actually pretty smart. I tried "lawn grooming" a couple years back but that didn't work to well. It was probably my cheesy homemade signs. lol!

    I know who you are you started with a white chevy when you were in college. Good luck getting that amount of clients this year...you're goin to need a really good saleman and he better be able to deal well with the customers....but you probably know all that.

    Also maintenance isn't like hardscape/landscape people are always botching about little crap. You're going to need a dedicated guy to manage it all.

    Actually that is incorrect. I went to college, graduated, worked for about 2yrs specifically with high-end residential and then got the Chevy and started my business.

    I appreciate the insight but everything is already in order to handle it. Even in a teared effect based on volume. Some call that planning. Maybe I will, maybe I won't but guess what..........I'm trying.

    I have no interest in becoming something like TruGreen but look at them. If they did like a lot of people and listened to those saying "you can't" then they would not have. Business is risk and I'm not afraid. I'm also smart enough to position my business to pursue this safely.

    BTW, my last boss told me I couldn't too.

    How many accounts are you running currently? I could be wrong but don't you have a brother or a cousin allready set up who is taking care of that side of the business? I remember you saying you just email over the route and notes and its all on them.

    Not quite. More to it than that.

    We had 90 last year and 25 before that. I've got several people involved with different things. There is also an out of area sister company that had 50 customers last year, first year. We've got our hands in more than one basket and pushing straight ahead. Also, had a custom program built from the code up to manage accounts the way we want them done.
