    Starting with 0 clients and $4500 - $5000 of business expenses, what do you all consider a realistic goal for the first season. I have an idea of where I want to be, but i'm curious as to how others did their first season. Based on personal experience and the experience of others, what should I shoot for?

    Well....what's Your Ideas....where Do You Want To Be? We Got Off To A Great Start. Unfortunately It Grew Way Too Fast And Its Over The Edge. Lots Of Long Hours To Keep Up. Sometimes Its A Rush And Other Times You Want To Cry

    I've started up again this year after having sold it about ten years ago. What a big mistake that was. After being back for about 5 weeks now, things are alright. I'm getting some big jobs, considering I am by myself. Just signed another $1300 today. I will have a good May but the steady cash flow with the lawns just is not there yet. I'm looking at maybe 25k for the year right now. Sucks if you ask me. I was expecting double that atleast.
