    I'm hi jacking my thread to but I give you respect for making that kind of money. It's Hard when you got to do it yourself. I had a friend that tried and ruin my business and stole a couple accounts.

    My landscaping boss laughed at me and thought I would end up selling my accounts to him and my equipment. Realized that I was doing better and fired me thinking that I would be broke and end up selling my business.

    My secret:

    I had no truck just a camaro and a streetbike.I worked for a slave driver I guess you can say. Ran his 130 accounts with the second crew. Told him I want to get into on the weekends to make some extra cash. He goes you have nothing.

    I took out a small personally loan to buy a truck. Boss was shocked. I traded my street bike for a walker, blower, and weedwacker and also a bagger. I had to sell the bike because I found myself drinking and riding the bike to much.My Boss well Ex boss got me really drunk and then said lets go ride and we rode and he egged me on and I passed him out the first time and hit a curb went on the grass and just missed hitting the stop sign. Then I bounced passed him on the highway and me and this car hit each other bec the highway merged (80 MPH) and I lost my shoe, exhaust melted his tire and bent my pipes to the manifold, I lost my brakes, brake peg, foot peg and it was hanging from the hose.Anywho, When I got more accounts and better equipment to handle larger jobs. Got a trailer because ramps sucked and took longer and with the trailer you can put more tools in your bed and crap.

    I walked to everybody in certain blocks and sold myself and gave them my flyer and business card. You gotta sell accessories not just mowing thats why some people say your not gonna make it its just mowin. Nope Mulching, flower bed design, snow plowin, fall cleanup, spring cleanup, gutters, fertilizing, etc... Anywho thanks I will sell the blower for $150
