    I've got one now for 12 years. As time has progressed, she can afford more services, and has had 2 homes in 12 years as well. Started as a basic mow for $ 22.00, and is now at $ 38.00. She's not full service, but loyalpayup

    Got one i have had since 1988 when i was part time ( started full time in 1993) and a few that i have had 12 years plus but some are very old now so the route is ever changing as they pass on or go into nursing homes. Out of 60 plus customers i have a rentention rate of 98% to 99% , only been fired like 3 times since 93 but also had a few homes sell during that time

    When I started, I had 5 accounts in one neighborhood. Today I still have 3 of the 5, plus 45 others in the same neighborhood.
