    Under Services/Home Repair section of todays paper it says:

    So Why pay those high prices?
    Mowing, mulching, landscaping
    and yard clean up.
    Call (XXX) XXX-XXXX

    Here's another:

    A guy here runs an ad "Free LAwn Care'. We will mow, trim, edge and clean up for free the first time to prove our work.
    I own three acres with lots of trees and edging. I might call him for a free mow.:p

    I think you should, I would like to see some pics of it.

    WAY to go!!! :D :cool: If you do this, post the pics on LS.

    I tried that sort of thing 5 years ago when hard up for work. I never got a single call. Now I do not need to offer things like that. I turn a ton of work down on a regular basis.

    it's not rocket science but it IS an aquired TALENT.still cant find anyone to at least use a line trimmer correctly and efficiently .i'm waiting to see the ad- we'll pay you to cut your lawn!
  8. Ok Heres the plan-check out this idea to get all the business I need.

    I'll cut my prices in HALF!!
    Then I'll get TWICE as many customers cause my prices are so low.

    Man is this a great business plan or what, by the end of the year I'll be rolling in it and I'll buy me a rocket ship.
    :D :D :D

    It's like putting a sign on your shirt that says:

    I can teach anyone the science..........................It's the ART of growing plants that can not be taught.
