    Hello, I am 23 yrs old, and I have been starting out very slow, Its been several years, I chose to Work at my current factory job, and have also worked for two professional Lawn Care companies, I have finally bought all of my major equipment.
    2004 Ford F-150 4X4, 7X14 Cargo Trailer, Exmark Lazer Z HP 48" W/striping kit, and mulching kit, Stihl weedies and Stihl blowers. I am so ready to get out there and start mowing I can't hardly sleep at night, does anyone have any pointers for a newbie like myself. types of properties to mow, advertising, bidding, etc? Thank you.

    Its kind of late to bid on commerical accounts. Your best bet would be to go for residential. Make about 1000 black and white flyers and blanket the area that best suits you. Good luck this season!
