    Was wondering what everyone else's thoughts / experiences with having another job on the side while also mowing.

    Obviously it has to be something with flexible scheduling to allow for the busier months of the spring and summer. something that will compliment a lawn care business.

    For example, real estate sales is something that an individual can do in additional to lawn care due to the fnature of the job and it shares the same target market (home owners)

    Any other occupations with a similar fit?

    I know a guy that works for UPS (United Parcel Service) loading trucks in the early morning hours and then goes to his regular job at 8:00am.

    What about jobs that feed off each other. By that, i mean one endeavor benefits from the other.

    Like with operating your own lawn service while also being a real estate agent. At times, a lawn customer may generate sales real estate sales either pesonally or through someone they no and vice versa from your real estate clients.

    What are other jobs that give or take benefit from a lawn care business?
