A friend and I are wanting to start a mowing business around the Knoxville, TN area. We both would enjoy the outside work, and want to get out of our current production work. We make good money and have great benefits at our current job, but that doesn't always mean everything. I know we will have to pay a lot for health insurance, but we are willing to do it. There is a huge demand around this area for mowing services, including a lot of businesses (which is what we would like to eventually focus on). We are unsure how to go about getting bids for companies, though. Do you simply just call them up? And, it's hard to guess what they normally would pay for such services. It would only be the two of us in a partnership, but taxes are still a little confusing. We are also not sure which brand of mower to buy. I know the leaders, but still have never had the opportunity to try them all. I am confident we would succeed because we are very driven to do this for ourselves. There are just a lot of unanswered questions we still have. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
