    I Set a goal of reaching 45 accounts this year, and I have reached this goal. Only advertising I have used was a small simple news paper ad and word of mouth. Now I am going to shoot for 50, and a new truck! :cool2:

    Easy to do. wom does best along with walkups. Buy your truck in cash at least 6 months old, not brand new cause the value will drop at least 3 grand once you hit the road. Glad for you, like I said very easy to do. Some people are born leaders go for it. Try to eventually run 4 crews.

    Buy a nice used truck nobody will be able to tell the difference and you will have some money left to do something important. Don't do lawn business to buy a truck use the money to get more education.
