    Hey everyone.
    Just to get an idea on where a lot of people are at, and where they plan to go, just wanted to see what everyoe grossed last year, and where they hoped to be at the end of 2004.

    Here's ours, small, but moving on up!
    Currently working 1 day a week on LCO.

    2003 gross $3100
    2004 gross goal $5000

    Thanks for the input :cool2:

    All I'm gonna say is our biz did mowing alone of 6 figures last year...and I am not saying high or low 6's either. Think you will have a hard time getting a lot of people to reply to this one IMO.

    Per year or is that per week???? I was down 8% in 2003 vs. 2002. This was due to a freak snowstorm in April, and too many rain outs. I've already landed some large accounts for 2004, so I should be up by 10% over 2002's gross.

    I agree with ya on this one Rodfather, hard time indeed.

    All I will say is that we grossed 173% more than last year.

    Inquiring upon percentage of growth increase forecasted versus actual dollars is a more appropriate request.

    Our goal was to gain 1/2 of a percentage of our potential target market in '03, and 2% for '04.

    didn't mean to pry guys, just curious on what everyone kind of grew in their first few years.

    Like went from:

    1st year - start
    2nd year - up 40%
    3rd year - up 20%
    4th year - up 10%
    5th year - up 5 %

    ok, so you can choose how to respond, but mainly just curious on how everyone planned to grow, a little at a time, or WHAM! all at once.

    Thanks everyone, just trying to pass the time until the weather warms up!

    Not gonna post any income numbers, but we have grown over 50% the last three years running. Looks like the trend is going to continue this year.
