I don't even remember if I introduced myself here before, but it would have been 10 years ago anyway. Unfortunately I haven't accomplished much in the last 10 years, but I haven't given up either. Anyway, I'm from San Antonio, TX. People are always telling me there's too much competition here; don't start a lawn service. Why am I so stubborn, and keep trying? I don't know exactly, but I suppose I feel like I don't have to be just another mediocre lawn service. If I hadn't had 30 customers at one time, I probably would have given up by now. Of course, 30 customers probably isn't enough to make a living, but I got those customers in a relatively short time. Yes, the economy was better, so maybe I have to work a little harder. I don't enjoy the heat that much, but I must like the rest of it, because I keep trying. So I bought the minimum equipment to get started, and passed out my first 100 flyers today.
