    A lawyers office and his house. the office is right downtown, and he lives in a nice neighborhood, so i should be getting some good exposure from both places. what do you think?

    just mowing for now, i want to get a handful of mow only customers so i can generate a steady income before i start to offer other services (i'm trying to replace my full time job). i won't say no to a few odd jobs though, provided i have the knowledge and equipment to do so.

    Congrats! Remember not too lowball. It will be tempting at times. But it will be better for you and other LCO's if you refrain from the lowball.

    no worries there, i've been in the business for 10 years now, just finally decided to do my own thing. plus i'm a full-time single dad with two kids to feed, i know the value of a dollar.
