    I am new to running my own business but have may years experience working for other either mowing, farming etc. I am taking it slow and building up my equipment and getting my name out there. I am still looking for customers and know it will take time. I will have a listing in next years yellow book that comes out in November and am working on a flyer that I plan on mailing out to all homes owner who have homes value over 250,000 in ZIP codes 52317 and 52241

    If any one has any ideas on how I can get more customers or promote my business I sure would love to hear it. Right now I work 7-4, M-F and plan on some day working full time for myself.
