    I was in business several years and decided to buy the book. There was a lot of information in it that I already knew or had found out, but I thought a lot of it was helpful as well. $70.00 is not a great deal of money, and though it was worthwhile.

    how much is your time worth though? we charge 45.00 a man hour. Can you find ALL of the information in that book in 1 1/2 hours by yourself, and i mean EVERY SINGLE THING IN THE BOOK? if not, i say it is worth it. Would have taken me weeks to find all of that info. not worth that much time to me. It was worth it for us.

    Would honestly have to say that about 75- 85% of everything I read in the book is common sense business 101.

    You could possibly find all the info from that here at lawnsite however you need to consider your time. Just buy it and be done with it. I do hope someday I can sell something similar myself.

    payup :laugh:
