    Hey Pete, I started this thread so I guess I should jump in. I am mainly in the Portland area. I started 2+ years ago, the best thing I've ever done, there's nothing like being your own boss. I started with an ad in the Portland Press Herald, they have a service directory in the classified section. It cost me around $90 for a month. I ran it for two months in the spring and a month to-wards the end of the summer. It landed me about 25 accounts, I got an additional 15 from referrals. I started with just maintenance but this past year I have started to dabble with the Landscape side of things. This year I am going to distribute door hangers to people that live near my current customers so I can make each stop more productive. Good luck, shoot me an e-mail if you have any questions!!!
