    i would hire a sailsman for a few days or what ever until i get all the work i want and quit my normal job so i could work for my self
    i have most all the equipment i need to do most of what i would like to do except a enclosed trailer and a dump trailer

    15 s10's or danger rangers

    15 5x10 trailers

    15 belt drive walk behinds

    15 trimmers, handheld blowers, edgers.

    ^everything used, probably going to cost about $40k

    then 30k on advertising. (50,000 door hangers, billboards, etc)


    Spam out the whole town so that every single household is exposed to the advertising at least twice a day.


    and construct a throne so I can sit in it and laugh as I become the ruler of lawncare in my area.
