    :hammerhead: when do you stop beating your head aginst the wall and say, okay I made a h---- of a run on this business and to sell.
    been in it for 7 years and, it's time to sell it and just work for someone eles in the biz.
    Family is not suffering but, we are not getting ahead either. Have gained new clients and have kept the ones I have always had as well.
    I am not making anything either, just enough to pay my bills and not all either.
    I am still in love with what I do but mentally exhausted and yet aloud myself to sucommed to somekind of default. still holding on though, knowing it has to get better.

    Only thing is you dont really get what your company is worth. No one really wants to pay anything. The problem is that everyone in the lawn field complains that the customer wants something for nothing but yet most LCO want something for nothing also. Hence why there are only a handful of huge LCO.

    Maybe you need to charge more. Have a chat with each client and say that your expenses have gone way up.
    Might be hard to sell a business where money is not generating.
