    And yet you have a Ford gas :laugh: :hammerhead:

    I'm going to go ahead and say this, if you are not reading this book your are "doing it, doing it, doing it" (- Tony Bass) all wrong.

    My main goal is to save $1200 a month for getting a mower at the end of the season. What kind well I don't know. We'll see when we get there...

    This year the goal is to go from 10k gross a month to 20k a month. Get the kubota zd326 paid off, get a 3rd truck and second plow truck, another 18ft landscaping trailer, a dump trailer, either a ferris evolution or scag v ride, and I would not mind a small tractor, mini skid steer, or stump grinder. Also get my hands into hardscaping and buy a personal car. Also hiring 2 full time employees and starting pay roll. wow thats a list lol I'm turning 22 in may. I had 65 clients last year and around a 100 regular properties to give perspective.

    I'm hardly a young guy but this book caught my eye. I have the E Myth on audio CD.

    The EMyth Landscape Contractor book is the best thing I've ever read.
