    Hi you doing Charlie? Welcome back to the grass cutting world. You use to cut grass as a teenager, smell like that fresh cut grass stay with you. The best advice i could say is advertise, either by word of mouth or sign. When the work start rolling in be ready to get it.

    Would it be smart for me to go out and get insurance so i can do commercial work or should i stick to family and friends without insurance for a little while?I don't know how long the oilfield will be in the crapper but if i can get started fast enough maybe i won't have to worry about my job not being there next week..The only thing i'm paying on is my mower...oh and fuel and maint.

    I would get insured. It is very important and you never know what could happen.
