Hey all, I just started my business this year, I invested I think way more than I should have, $11K, but luckily I have another job to pay for the investment. I've landed a whopping 2 clients so far, almost 3 but I had to turn down a 69 lot new subdivision due to too much re bar and concrete around, but i have been throwing business cards and fliers out like a mad man. I'm wondering if I may be in trouble if I need to pay half of that investment off by the end of the year. My goal for this season is to land 15 or more clients, is that unrealistic for a starting lawn care business? Am I in trouble? What could I do differently to get more clients? This forum has a lot of good info on it and have found it very helpful, and I'm sure there are some pros out there that could help me out. Thanks in advance.

You are doing fine! This is only my third year in the business. Last year I didn't start handing out flyers until April 15th and got 30 new accounts in less than a month and a half. I would highly suggest passing out "at least" 5,000 flyers.
