Hey Shawn,
I would think maybe you can break down the "under $29,999" choice, as I think a lot of people started out very small, such as myself. Maybe it would generate a little more interest if you describe maybe what you are looking to learn, and not just ask someone what they make.
It's like walking up to a man on the street and asking him his personal business.

Just some advice.

I think it will be an interesting post. I think many people will probably lie about how much they made, but I hope not because it would be cool to see the honest results.

I made about $15,000, but I did not only do lawn maintance. I made about $8000 of that pressure washing and painting.

This year I am going with pressure washing and full time lawn care and hope to make at least $30,000 gross but really am aiming to break $50,000, if all goes right.
