So this is my second week of my first season as a LCO. I have a few regular accounts now, and I am getting 1 to 2 calls a week for mowing accounts. I have been fighting tooth and nail to expand and grow, yet it has been a slow and steady battle, that is until yesterday..... Yesterday I got a call for a bid on two houses. One house was 3 acres, and the other was 1. I did some research on google maps before I met the Client for the bid, and holy cow were these some huge houses. The house on the 3 acre lot was 14,700 sq ft, and the other house was 12 thousand something. I met the client and walked both properties with him. I shook his hand and told him that I would email him my bid later tonight. After careful consideration, I submitted my bid of $450 per week for both of the properties. This morning he called me back and accepted my bid! Maybe to some of you guys out there $450 a week isnt anything to write home about, but to me that is enough cash to really grow my business!! Besides that, $450 is more cash then I have ever earned in one days work anywhere else.
