I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the kind words (well most anyway) I have gotten here. Awhile back I posted that I was throwing the towel in and I made one last ditch effort and gave it my best shot. My best just was not good enough, I DO NOT feel like I failed its just my area that is so bad. Today I counted 9 new LCO in a 3/4 mile stretch of road. Everyone had a el-cheapo mower. Now Im not making fun of them, I tried that too and it did not work and they will have to learn. I lost 3 accounts last week, 2 more today, and have 3 that are wishy washy. Lady called tonight that I just got Friday and cancelled for tommorow, found somone cheaper. Her yard was a 60 dolllar yard and I quoted her 45, her shrubbery trrimming was about 6 hours and I only quoted her 200 and she like to crapped! I have went on one dead end estimate after another and I honestly believe if I say over 15 bucks every person will GASP! Im calling back a man tommorow that wanted to buy my 737 Saturday and I told him I was still undecided, and let her go. I am going to put my truck on e-bay and see what happens and get me a older truck. Im going to keep my 717 and the bare essentials till the end of Sept. and then sell it. I know a miracle could happen and I would be very pleased if it did and I get 20 new accounts this week but I am doing good to get 1 and lose 3! Man, I hate the thought of getting back in the rat race again This has been a wonderfull site and I have learned a lot from it. Like I said, I would like to come back on here next week and say "Im back, " but just dont see it here in this area. I wish everyone of you the best, from the veterans to all the newbies that want to get their feet wet in this biz!
