That's my biggest weakness. Having just completed my first full season (I started end of summer 2018), I've got about 20 regular customers in 4 main locations. None of them are less than 15 miles from where I live. Go ahead. Tell me that's terrible, but I live just outside a town of 800 where those who care about their lawn take care of it themselves and those who don't care, let it run wild. I try to watch my miles and plan my routes efficiently.Ya I have a wife and a toddler. Wife is also in the medical field and works 3 12s... Last year I averaged about 12hours a week. This year I’m hoping to increase my efficiency and profit margins without adding a ton of hours. Ideally I would like to be around 20 customers in a 5 mile radius that all have at least 1 extra service besides mowing. With that I think I can gross around 40k
Currently I am mostly not supporting myself financially, although I am working towards that goal. Understanding that personal pay need not be a part of the picture right now, and that I try to keep my budget tight but flexible, anyone want to make predictions for my business? 2yrs from now? 5 yrs?
