I only have one employee but I think they are a necessary evil. You read all kinds of threads and posts about PITA customers but what about PITA employees. Don't get me wrong, my one employee is a nice enough guy, we get along, good worker and good with my clients but he can also be a baby, b**ch and a sissy.

i had 6 last year..........this year 2..............Too much of a pain in my A$$.

Not sure if it is worth it, I had more complaints last year than ever. Finding good help is not easy, yeah there are some good workers, but I couldn't find any. I got 2 great worker, which they do around 70-80 yards a week.

I'm solo, so I do around 40-50 a week, I do customers that complain the most, because for some reason they only want me doing thier yard. They also pay more, duh, anyway.........you gotta love this business

good luck to everbody, hope ya'll have a great year
