    My wife said she saw a company whose name was klean kuts in our area earlier this week. Do you have many accounts in this area? I have been told that this area is hard to make good money. Do you feel this way? I am averaging about 70.00 monthly. Just trying to get a feel. Thanks for all your help.

    That sounds like what I am running into down here. I had a lady in fish hawk and her son in bloomingdale. I told them at the start dec.- march was going to be 2 times monthly, because the grass doesn't need every week cutting. They were fine with that. They dropped me because I was not coming out every week. Some people just don't understand bi- monthly. That was 180.00 monthly for those two accounts. But I guess you learn as you go sometimes. Have a good weekend.

    Valrico and bloomingdale seem to be pretty good. But riverview is pretty hard to get good accounts.

    SLOW Ive done a few clean ups but tough getting local accounts.
    I had to let 2 accounts go over in hommassa due to the mileage and unable to get enough accounts to make it worth the trip.
    My insurance agent said that he had 21 canceled policies last month and nearly 50 that he was notified have been notified of cancelation if not paid.
    What is worse the fact so many are in trouble or that ONE ins co. in my area has so many lawn companies .
    I have started doing some rental prep work here and there till things pick up.
    I'm beating a dead horse
