So I figured that i would finally tell you guys about my biz!! I started out when i was like 11-12. I had a naibor that was going away for about a mounth and she asked me to take care of the lawn. Well she liked it so much that word got around and before i knew it i had 3 lawns plus my own. The next season was a great success with going to 5 lawns and me finally buying my own mower. Up until then i was using my dad's. By the 2008 (4 yrs later) I got myself up to 8 costumers. I also am working at a boat yard. So during the summer i would work 10 hr days then go and cut a couple of lawns. I was also able to buy my self a new redmax bp. This year i already have some work for some of my teachers. I am still in highschool. Word of mouth has got me many jobs through teachers. I have to go and quote out an install and a couple of lawn mowing jobs. I plan on staying in the biz for life. I am going to colledge and majoring in landscape arch. and biz management. Hopefully some day having a lawnmower repair shop and still send a crew out to do the lawns. I am an Eagle Scout and an Honors student at my school. Best of luck in 09!!!!
