    I only have 25, but I'm still in school. I also sell firewood on the side. After this year when I finish up with school, I hope to go all out on lawns. I am not sure how it will work in that first year or two, to make full time work out of it. I guess I will just have to take on more jobs of everything (spring,fall cleanup, mulching, garden beds, ect.) to make up for a full weeks work.

    Boy do I feel small. I only have around 20. This is my first year doing apps and these were my guinea pigs. I hope to pick up quite a few more next year and convert my existing customers to go with me. Most of them have the TrueGreen is the best mentality burned into their brain.
