    I've never been the bragging type....But Ain't America Great? Here I am, just a dirty, sweaty dude who mows yards for living and I'm in the top 1-2% of this nation's income earners! LOL. It's really quite funny because I live in a nice area where I'm flanked by an attorney who lives on one side of me and an orthodontist on the other. Up and down my street, in fact there's a variety of individuals who have prestigous, high income-earning jobs.....and here I am rolling in each night with my ugly, dented truck and beat-up trailer that hauls equipment that looks like it was just picked up at the junk yard! And it really is ironic that I probably make more money than 95% of my customers...who for all they know I'm living at the poverty level.

    so how do you do it?? Full service landscaping....or mow and go? I'm personally trying the JustMowIt style....but in the area I'm in, even if it turns in to the biggest mowing company around, I won't pull in 6 G's a week. :cry:
    (I don't think anyway)

    6 g's a week, I thought you were talking about gas prices, lol. but damn thats good and even better for mow and go. If its money you want, go to the condo property maintenance.
