    Well I am proud to say I have my first customer that signed a Yearly contract along with a spring clean up. it was quit gratifying I must say and that was after only passing out about three hundred flyer's.

    I remember my first customer was my neighbor. The lawn took about 3 hours, and I made $40 on it.
