Stumbled onto this site a couple days ago and now have many hours in searching all previous topics. I am currently a Mfg. Engineer and have been for the past 10 yrs but this year I have found myself REALLY fed up with all the office politics and working for someone else why they make all the profits. I am convinced there is a better way to make a living. I mowed lawns as a kid starting when I was 10 and was able to buy my first car at 14 (69 Camaro) so i know there is $$$ to be made. I am a very hard worker and a perfectionist with everything I do. There are only a couple things i love to do and that is hunting, mowing grass and detailing cars. Hunting for a living is a tough gig and rare, detailing cars is LOTS of hard work and not as profitable so that leaves me with lawn care. I am going to make a go of it this spring but do not wish to start part time and work into it. I want to research everything I can and have all my ducks in a row and go full bore into it as i know I can make it work and work well and sites like this are answering a lot of the questions I have. My wife is not so convinced as she is not a risk taker and likes the steady paycheck but the way I look at it is that atleast I tried and if it doesn't work I can always go back to what i do now but at least i tried. Sorry for rambling on as I just think I needed to keep convincing myself it is the right thing to do and to say thanks for the great info on this site! Are there any other sites you guys go to for info?
