    I don't see this operation being 100% started by you in the least bit. No offense & I'm not here to pick a fight but at 19 years old, there's seriously no way that: 1. A property manager would even consider meeting with you (in most cases, as they don't see someone young as a professional) 2. To have enough work (again, at 19 years old) to justify two 2011 diesel trucks and be in the market for a 1 1/2 ton truck. I'm thinking your parents had to have bought the truck for their own use or something and allowed them to put your company name on it. Not to mention, poor grammar. Not saying your contracts or advertising is poorly written, just basing that off the way you write on here. But I suppose the mantra of who you know is what got you the work. Btw I'm 21, so not that much older but I was 19 when I started and now I think almost every day about "if I only knew then what I know now" situations.
    None the less though, nice trucks & nice equipment and it looks like you do nice work.

    I understand where your coming from, but this is all me I pay for my payroll and equip. It's all me getting contracts with communities. When they ask about my age I am honest with them, once they see my references and call them my operation speaks for itself. That's how I seal deals

    Geez, people just want to put you down... Everytime I read this thread, someone else has something to say about the legitimacy of your business. Who cares?? I think you run a fine operation and keep doing what you're doing, because obviously it is working. Keep the pictures coming, I look forward to them.

    Great job on the logo. It's clean, sharp and gets the point across. Often times I see logos that are a train wreck. Just make sure to carry that level to all your marketing material and your website design.

    Just read all 29 pages and all I can say is amazing!!! I just started this year and can't imagine growing that big that quick. You must have a very good business mind and work hard. Don't worry about the people that are jealous of your equipment they forget that a 20 years old you don't have all the other distractions and bills. This business is your baby and your baby is doing very well. Keep up the good work!!:waving:
