    As long as the quality is good, speed is my business and I tell people that. If I have to take all day to cut a lawn then they'll have to pay me for a day's work at the rate of profit that I normally generate. Then I'll have to come back every day of the week to cut because of the loss of customer base from not getting to any other lawns.<br>If that isn't enough, ask them how you are going to pay your payroll taxes, worker's comp., insurance and liscencing fees when you take all day at his place?<br>This business isn't so different from a factory in the sense that it's all about production. How much production did you get out today? Speed is where the money is.

    I`ll put up with some whining if the lawn I`m<br>doing is straight forward to cut but pain in the ass yards with pain in the ass customers ,no way. I choose my lawns and the people I deal with even though people may think otherwise. Any job that leaves me shaking my head in disgust just ain`t worth it.
