    Started mowing when I was really young, started mowing for money when I was 14.

    It made me grow up way toooo fast (which has its pro's and con's)

    You young guys need to work hard, but its your time to play harder! Don't miss out on your best years!

    Started last year, at 22 when I got out of the Air Force. Now I'm, obviously, 23. Very pleased thus far.:D

    I started when I was a fetus, went bankrupt before the third trimester.

    I like most people did the neighbors lawn when I was 14. I didnt get serious about anything in life until I was around 30. Im now 35 and finlly out of puberty and have a mission to accomplish.
