    I was totalling up my sales for my first full-time year. I am curious what some of you guys grossed your first full time year. After all of my accounts recievable come in I should be just shy of $50K. That does not include any plowing, just landscaping. I think that is a substantial amount for first full time year. Please post with your sales! I would appreciate it!

    well, I am just about wrapping up the season, and looking like my gross this year will be about $4,000.
    Didn't want to jump right into it, but rather learn and try it the first year. I have a lot of potential to grow next year, I just have to only take on what I can handle.
    Good news is I have a new commercial contract (1st one) next year which will be about $2000, which is a great motivator for me to keep going.
    The $4,000 was with only 3 weekly clients, so I feel pretty good about it next year.:p
