    Steph:

    Advice...hmmmm lets see......

    My first advice would be to "stick with it". You will have good and bad years.

    I have been doing this since I was your age and have taken several breaks from it. I went into the army, became a firefighter/paramedic,and worked some construction for a period of time, but I always came back to lawn and landscape work. I love the freedom, being my own boss, yadda yadda yadda. I've had years when I was broke, and i've had years that I burned money like firewood. It will come full circle, but its a bumpy ride.

    My second bit of advice would be "to remember why you want to be in this biz in the first place, and carry that with you when you go to each job" That can help you to "stick with it"

    Welcome to Lawnsite Hedge. I suggest that you learn to stop, drop, and roll. :waving:

    Welcome Hedge and Stephanie

    My best advice is to spend all the time you can learning from the guys and gals on this forum. They have and are a wealth of information. This bunch has certainly helped me in many areas.

    Best of luck
