    What is the best way to go full time. This is really my first year and already have 20 accounts. I advertised in the local paper and landed about 14 of them. I didn't renew my ad because I do not have enough time for more. Any suggestions on how to go about getting enough lawns so I can quit my full time job and go mowing full time?

    Things to consider before attempting this:

    Weather can make or break your season
    "True Customer Loyalty" is hard to find
    Primary income for most is seasonal
    Overhead is high
    No benefits, insurance

    These are common things to think about before making the plunge...I have no desire to ever go full time...I would rather earn with my mind, not my body
