Now that we are heading into another winter and some much needed down time for me and my equipment i am faced with that question again how big do i want to get. Will i hire employees or get more equipment so that i can do more jobs myself without anybody else. this year was very busy for me and next year promises to be even busier. i also know someone who is getting out of this business and he is interested in selling his client list to me. this is a good list but it will definitely mean one if not 2 ohter people with me. I am slowly getting rid of clients that do not pay enough as i am raising their rates to get everything inline with ohter clients so i can create some room for better paying clients. next spring i may also advertise....maybe!! I was also thinking of how to get into gas stations for their landscaping and other local churches as i have 1 already(large area to mow). anyway sorry about the long post this is just me thinking aloud about this business.
