Ok I live in TX so we have been mowing already for a month. I started this business a year ago but this isnt the first time I ran it. I work full time and run a crew while I am at work. Its starting to take its toll. So what do I do. I have 40-50 accounts. Most of them will go to weekly in May. My average account is $30. I do a lot of landscaping but am in fear that it might die down a bit. Honestly I would quit my job now but I need just about 3500 a month to survive and pay down past debt. My questions are. You bigger guys have you seen a down turn in business due to the economy? When did you know it was time to break off? How much are you guys really making. I make 42K a year at my job and this year all my sales for lawn care will be 40-50K. I have to pay out a lot of labor and I lose a lot of jobs because I cant do them all. I have posted on here that I was doing both but I have decided it needs to be one or the other or I need to drop down my lawns so I can manage them better. Any thoughts?
