I decided early on that I wasnt cut out for college. Im just not one of your book smart people. Since my 11th grade year, I have done lawns as a summer job. Last summer I had 11 accounts and this summer I have 17. At first glance, I was interested in doing this for a living. I was soon hit with needs for medical insurance, retirement, and the need for year round money. After I came to this conclusion, I decided to finish a year of college and find a job with benefits. I would love to find a part time job with benefits but its not looking very likely. I have come across a 40 hour a week job working 6:00am-2:00pm. I also want to get a little more serious into the lawn business also. Questions: For thoughs of you that work an 8 hour day, how many lawns can you handle after that? Are you completely miserable trying to juggle both? Do any of you own a lawn business but pay someone to handle the labor while you work a full time job? How well does this work for you? Questions for the LCO: For thoughs of you that work seasonal and make a good living, how do you handle the medical insurance, especially if your wife decides to stay home with the kids rather then make the benefits? How do you handle retirement?
