I have referred to this several times, figured that I had better post up and tell every body. I had the oportunity to sell my lawn biz to a friend. I started it in July of 1996 and sold in July of 2002. I worked with him for a couple of weeks to show him how I was doing things, and for him to meet the customers. I have started hauling cars for different dealers around here, and that has been going good so far. He got all the equipment, and customer base. The monthly agreement customers are still in my name for the rest of the season, he just works for me on those, and I pay him. So until the end of the season I won't be officially OUT of lawn care. Here is a list of the reasons why I sold. BURN OUT Allergies I had to have year around income, (house payment) BURN OUT year three of the worst drought on record, expected to become year four next season would leave little income when there is no grass to mow BURN OUT It was with very mixed feelings that I let it all go. When you do some thing for 6 years you have got to have your heart in it. I did for a while, when he showed up with the $$ I lost heart really fast. I am sure that when next spring rolls around I will miss it for a little. That was the time of year I always liked best. Fall was always nice because it meant a break, but also no income for about 5 months. Car hauling is going pretty good so far. Insurance is way high. $7300 a year. I suppose that this means I need to change my account name, and not post on the Commercial lawn care part of LS. Tell me what you think guys, if you don't want an EX LCO posting I won't do it. I hope in time that I can make my personal lawn the best on the block. That will be the only lawn care I plan on doing. That means I will have to post on HOMEOWNER forum. UG!!!!!!! Have fun and be safe guys, and gals. Wear your ear and eye protection.
