    What are yalls business goals for 2001? I am going to try to gross 50k and get another 15k in the bank. I am 16 and I am still in high school so I do not have any mouths to feed or a mortgage to pay. I am almost positive I can reach my goals, just gotta do alot of hard work.

    Just curious as to how you are going to achieve this?

    How many employees do you have working for you?

    Still in school right? So in March, April, and May, the three busiest months, you'l be working after school???
    Cutting on Sundays? I know our customers don't appreciate Sunday cuts.
    Then September, October, and November back in school?

    It just seems like not enough time to cut and still make your goal taking into account that summers sometimes slow up due to lack of rain.
    And that's not including in the Spring when the rain flys hard and slows everyone up. How do you keep up with such limited cutting time?

    Dump the late payers; price increases; do more install and excavation work.
