    Winter is here:( i know many of you plow like me, unfortunately it only snows a couple of handful of times. What else do you guys do in the winter time to keep busy. I am looking for ideas to expand off of the summer clients.

    you could possibly put up decorations, sort of like a rental to them and you take them down in the spring. Fall clean ups bring some cash in too. hope this helps

    During the summer, Do you find yourself saying "this wold be better if I _________"? Or I wish I had a __________? I could better my clientel if I __________? Well winter is time to fill in the blanks. Not enough mind you but some. My list is too long already!

    Plow-plow and more plowing! 70% of income is from this service. Plus roof clearing.
