    I have bout 80 weekly clients i service. With a cut trim blow type service. last year i was always busy with other things related to business. So this year i was of course slow in the start and i tried to get on the mower again. I then it started the landscaping calls and the mulch jobs and so forth. So i decided now to get off the mower and have my guy do it. I gotta train a new guy monday. Any good advice for training a new guy? I also was wondering does anyone else do this or all youguys are either like a 3 crew company and dont cut, or is there others liek me idk. I figure what it cost me to send another guy out instead of me its not worth my time and then when im off the machine i find more work ? COMMENTS PLEASE
