    You sir know what you are talking about.

    This is why after 13 years and a budget cut putting me out I'd go back teaching shop tomorrow and mow on the side. Then after having a good pension and retiring with health benefits I would play LCO to stay out of my wife's way.

    Thanks guys I can't say thanks enough for the responses. Only people from this industry can give such great advice. Unfortunately I don't have a single person in my family or circle of friends that can relate. You have given me much to think about. I was raised to appreciate delayed gratification as well as the value of money and time. This is a juggle act of all three.

    britsteroni, thanks for the money break down. My figures came close to yours as I was feeling $75k net would be my exit mark. Of course this is from rental income as well as lawn care income.
