    i started as a lawn boy

    when i was 12...

    did that untill i was 18

    I went to college... got a degree... worked a bunch of crappy jobs

    when i was 22 i started working part time with a landscaper
    after 2 years i went to work part time for a excavation compnay
    another 4 doing part time tree work/firewood with a guy on the side
    2 years working part time for a lawn/garden maintence company

    I finally quit my 12 hour 4 on 3 off 3 on 4 off full time industrial job and struck out on my own... it honestly has been the best experience of my life...
