    YOUR GOAL is to build a client base of hundreds of residentials within a tight area. a friend of your wife...her husband lost his job and can't seem to find steady work, he came to you and asked you to help him start a lawn company, not financially, but every thing else. would you?

    I would glady accept yet another consulting position. Help him by showing him what areas to work etc. All for the standard 10%.
