I am considering starting a lawn mowing biz in Rochester, NY. Rochester is home to Kodak, which is continuing to layoff people. This means that the unemployment rate is going up, people are (probably) cutting back on lawn care service and, maybe, former Kodakians are starting their own lawn businesses. What do you think about starting a biz in this environment? How have you found that an economic downturn affects your existing customer and getting new customers? Any other thoughts are welcomed!!
