    Well, I have no one else that would understand what a huge burdan & sence of satisfaction that comes with clawing their way out of scrubdom. So heres the story.
    my third year on my own. two years w/ a great guy/ company befor then ( my mentor if you will) started w/ a partner 1 st yr, biught him out last. my goals for this year have been met.
    All legal, regestered, dba... ect...
    got insurance, thanks from help of DFW Landscaper.
    Got a mint ford f-250 1 ton camper special truck, thanks to my old boss.
    all uniformed up & signs on truck & yard signs for installs
    and my final step... good by 22" murrys!!!
    I pick up my Gravely pro G walkbehind, w/ bagger, w/ stripper kit, w/ extra blades & belts, & new red max stick edger on monday.
    Along w/ my fs- 85s I no longer feel like hanging my head in shame.
    Thanks to this board who motivated my with all the good advice, and my very very supportive wife who has put up with all the long days & no money so I could pay for it all up front.
    & thanks to some very loyal custemers I have kept all from my first year & have helped me grow
    I have a total home matinance program whitch should keep me busy all year.
    I have been a builder & remodeler for several years am totaly equiped in that field, but mowing is what I love & is the bread & butter as well as my foot in the door for home matinance, ( paint, fence, landscape, ect.
    I hope this isnt cheezy, I just wanted to toot my own horn for finaly getting right & i know alot here would understand how good it feels.

    I picked up a liability policy this past week. Worth every penny if only because I can start each day knowing that if something goes really haywire, it won't kill my brand new business.
