    I don't consider it a hobby when you earn enough to feed your family and pay the bills.

    That's the truth not all accounts are the same.

    Thats why I hate the question "How many accounts do you have?" It shows no representation of your business or how it is doing. I know a guy that has 1 customer yet pulls in nearly a million a year...

    One year at the EXPO was BS with some other guys they was telling how many they mow. I thinking wow that's a lot till they told me the size. Then they ask my number I thought about it and I said 43 they all :laugh:
    Then one guy said, I wouldn't get out bed for 43.
    One guy said he mows 100 all 1/4 size lawns. I told him you times that by 4 that equals to one my lawns.
    That guy mows with WB 36/48'' I told him I run 3 72'' and 3 60'' on that one lawn.
    There jaws drop and ask how many mowers I had. I said 10 DC and 1 15ft batwing they look at me like :dizzy:

    So yes a number is just a number doesn't mean a thing. The $$$ is only thing that counts.

    Arrogance doesn't look good on anyone, you have one hell of an operation. Good luck on that school bid by the way.
