    just curious to see what everyone would do if they won 25,000.
    i think i'd get me a new walk behind and a new trailer with a side ramp, spend about 3k on advertising and then bank the rest. so, what would you do?

    i would invest it in a diffrent buisness not related to landscaping

    something that could make me money and i wouldn't have to work so hard for it

    all your eggs in one basket is never a great idea

    Invest in something other than what i have. I would like to retire at somepoint. Theres alot of ways to make money while doing nothing, you just need to invest alittle.

    I would prob trade my truck in for a new diesal...and maybe by another mower/equipment...but then again the truck would pry take the 25 grand!

    Probably Invest it somewhere. $25,000 really isn't much so i'd probably put it in a CD or something. Not like it's life changing ya know. 1 Million I could do something with. And I def. wouldn't spend any of on anything lawn business related.
