As others said, don't be discouraged. You haven't flopped. You need to change your mindset in a hurry. Some of us live in different areas with different markets. Some can build a business fast, others it takes longer. But I believe it takes years for ANY lawn care company to build a company to it's fullest potential. As others said, you shouldn't be on Lawn Site complaining, but rather out marketing. When you get that mindset you'll gain you the customers you are looking for. I started out this year and gained a but load of customers, but I had a mindset of pretty much going ALL OUT. When I started marketing in February, I was passing out thousands of flyers, stopping old ladies in the grocery store, and giving pretty ladies at the convenience stores flyers, when I seen someone walking their dog or working in their yard, I never passed them up. I've posted this on ls before, I've approached hundreds of people, went from being a shy person, to a slick salesman in one spring, out of the hundreds I've approached, only two literally told me to F off or literally MOVE ON, and I didn't take no offense to it. Change your mindset, you didn't fail, get out there and get to work.
