Here's a plan I think you'll like! (It's also my story) Go to College. Look for a College where the grass is GREEN, the edges are manicured and the striping is PERFECT. Apply for a job with the grounds department. Learn from classes (It'll make you a more rounded person durh!). Learn from the Grounds Staff. The fact is, most of the grounds staff will probably do a little side work anyhow... Once you've made some friends on the grounds staff, work for them on side jobs. Go to school! Make $$$ while at school for your own company expansion. It's worked out really well for me! J.
