I am wondering how hard it has been to acquire new customers this year in this recession. I let my customer count shrink and have not really tried all that hard to attain more. Last year I took a part time job and have started going to college to become a teacher. The teaching program will be five classes in the spring, five in following fall, and student teaching in the next Spring. With the economy, there is no guarantee of landing a job as a teacher. I am really torn between dropping out of this college and trying to grow my customer list. The mowing is something I have always done and in a average economy I can usually add some customers to the schedule. Which means some money no matter what.
