    LOL...attention to detail is key. I'd have to say I must not have experienced what your helper experienced in the military. I've been stationed overseas and stateside with all branches of the military and we always worked harder and more hours than the rest of the branches...maybe it was just my career field.

    One time in Jordan the Air Force opened up and closed 3 different bases throughout the country within 145 days. each base had anywhere from 5-7 thousand people. As standard 12-14 hour days were the norm, but one time we worked that for 40 days straight...not a single day off.

    Weekend warrior? Yeah not for me, not for my career field. The Air Force could possibly be the most "attention oriented" branch in the U.S. Military. that's no sting to the other branches...we have to be flying billion dollar jets around...not to mention strapped with bombs, but yet the Navy does a great share of flying too!

    Anyways, that was my Air Force experience, a lot of work! That's why running your own business is not very difficult after being in charge of a bunch of troops! LOL...

    So the CL ad was $25 any cut under 8000 sq ft, regardless of where it was at and how tall it was? You got rly lucky with Craigslist ppl actually signing on with weekly service. What was your living social deal?

    Well I have about a 40 mile area I cover I always say just the peninsula.

    But yeah if thier lawn is over grown I always tell them that it will be more.

    Just ran another ad 2 days ago and picked up another 4 yards but too bad they are bi-weeklys.

    How did your listing look on living social, can you send a link or c/p the details of it, I'm thinking of doing one.
