I have been reading these forums for the last 4 months, and while I have gained alot of useful information and tips..... in general I find this site to be for children and rather uneducated individuals. With threads such as: "Who is Mowing July 4th?" or "What is your favorite perk of this business?" or "My Dream Pickup Truck is..." it is no wonder it is SO easy for a real business person to come into this industry and absolutely destroy the competition out there. Now I am not saying that ALL posters here are like this, I truely respect a FEW names here, but in general....... people, we are not talking rocket science here: You supply a PROFESSIONAL image, You buy the good equipt, you mow straight, you do what you say you will, you pack up the trailer and MOVE ON to the next job...... that is the secret, that is all there is to it. If you can't get this straight, you are a dumb individual and the industry and homeowner is much better off without you out there. I have been silent for months now, and I really feel this site would be alot better off if it CHARGED a fee to be a member, and get rid of all the 15 year old KIDS and uneducated 30 year old live at home still dweebs who suck out all the very very very valuable and should be private BUSINESS SECRETS that we REAL buiness owners have learned and practice. We make the big money for a reason, and that reason is because some of us know how to SELL and RUN A BUSINESS, and some just have no place even trying to be in the same league as us. Sorry, just how I feel.
