    An update on this lawn I talked about in the first post..............

    Mowing the neighbor today I noticed its been 3 weeks and the lawn still is not mowed. A couple minutes into cutting the neighbor I notice her walk over to my dad trimming. A minute later he waves at me and points to her lawn telling me to cut it so I do.

    As we were pulling off he said she told him she see's why she has stayed with us for so long. We were always honest and reliable to with in 30 minutes every week she knew when we were going to show up and asked us to start cutting it again. So that's that.

    You'll be out of business quicker than you can say "Jesus saves" bud. Do yourself a favor get out now before you wind up broke as a joke.

    There is a lot of civil unrest due to a corrupt government. Plus, drug lords "lord it over" the people. That is why all the wet backs come here from Mexico and South America. Trust me, I know. They want to be free from the tyranny and are safe here, but WE pay THE PRICE.

    Uh, yes you are; however, no one is blaming you for this j/k. . . .

    Damn, your model is too complicated bro! Your customers won't be impressed by it either. Just keep things simple, not so convoluted.

    What we do is not rocket science, but you MUST be business savvy and have marketing skills!

    Besides, if at the end of the day you have not made enough to fill your gas tank to haul all your stuff, its time for some real soul searching to see if you have what it takes to STAY in this business.
