    Hi everyone, I'm new on this site and I am very, very interested in starting a lawn mowing business. I'm 28 years old right now and was wondering at what age did everyone else start their businesses. I've got 3 kids right now and have a full time job, so I wanted to start out relatively small (mowing, pruninig, small landscape projects, etc.) Thanks

    Welcome to LS. I started the business when I was 25, about 2 years ago, shortly out of college. I've always enjoyed it and still do.

    Hey, welcome to the site and the business. This is the end of my first year. I was 42 when I started it. I decided on a complete and total career change.

    I started out when I was 29. I had a wife and 2.5 kids, a full time job, and a part-time one. I have since lost the wife, and 1.5 kids. But, I still have mowing. Could be worse. I'm happy.
