    I've had good experiences buying accounts - a majority of your success comes in the service that you perform. If you do a better job than the guy before you, then you'll have a pretty good chance of keeping them as customers. Do your due diligence when it comes to each account - try to meet with each customer, find out how long they've been serviced by the old company, get some info on payment history, etc. You will probably lose a few customers, maybe 10%, but overall, its worth it.

    Friday was a great day, half the lawns needed only a quick trim and blow. We were back at the shop and sitting at hooters on the water. I love fall.
