    I was just curious to know how many of you guys out there are under 20 running their own business. How larger are you, what is your set up like how many accounts side jobs and so fourth?

    i like to see younger guys in business. it does not necesarily mean they will stick with this business, but it's the mindset that's important. people who are self sufficient have a completely different mindset than those who are not. stay focused young dudes, the world is truly yours for the taking

    One thing I do like about this business (I suppose any business for that matter) is that the potential is unlimited. You could run a operation that grosses $500 or $1.4 billion a year. Its up to you if you fail or succeed. What are you going to do?

    i am 20. i really got into it to make some extra money and i like the outdoors........ but then people started coming to me and i had alot of connections then the real money rolled in and not the extra money. plus another thing i enjoy is playing with the toys....(im sure everyones like that though) but o really want to get into hardscaping and landscaping dont really like cutting grass. so hopefully if i make some extra cash with the snow i will be able to get a skid steer and a like a 550 dump for the new season. but i still need to foccus on school more because this will always be here.
