This may not be the right forum but I'm feeling so good about it, I thought I'd post. First year in business, kind of spent last summer observing other outfits. I was a little worried about fall clean ups around here. Lots of neighborhoods with many mature trees. I knew the work would be there but didn't know if I could do it fast enough to make any profit. Well, got my first big job yesterday, 1 acre, the whole property was leaves ankle deep. Knee deep in corners etc... Took the guys last year around 5 hours. Our crew got it picked clean it 2 hours! blowers, 60" toro w/ vaccum system, billy goat leaf loader, 7X12 dump trailer built up. I was proud....and relieved. I think we can handle most jobs now.
