    Do you have a website? How did you land commercial accounts at 16? I was always under the impression you had to be 18 to enter into a legally binding contract.

    That doesn't answer his question what-so-ever. I'm sensing a HIGH BS factor!

    You have 50 lawn accounts and you either manage 100 landscapes or install 100 landscapes (honestly not sure what you mean). This size operation is not a solo business and not possible in the 90 days during the summer when you are not in school. Also grammar, punctuation, and ability to communicate a thought with some clarity is much more valuable than another $20 lawn account.

    3-9? at night? idk man. Really hard to believe this whole thing is true. The more this thread continues on the more I am convinced it's b.s. If it's true, well then props to ya, but kind of hard to believe. I really think you should stay in school and finish English class because if you ever send emails to clients with grammar like you have displayed on here, well just stay in school. Not bashing you but seriously, it hurts to read it and try to make sense of everything.
