    Coming up with advertising ideas. About to make a big equipment purchase. Here is one idea we came up with. My business partner and I are both teachers and coaches. We are currently coaching basketball and we came up with an advertising idea. We printed up a bunch of shirts that have our basketball team logo on the front and Panther Lawn Service on the back. We are going to have our cheerleaders throw them out to the crowd....we told them to try and aim for the older crowd!!! We are also working on our website.
