Now in my third year I'm trying to simplify and really focus in one area. Over the past two years I would entertain both landscape jobs and lawn contracts. I found this extremely difficult - especially in the the first year! I got myself into a bind more than once - trying to schedule a landscape job while worrying about the clients I should have been out mowing, while seeing the forecast calling for days and days of rain. Decided this year to make a choice and really focus on making it work. I will be trying to build my lawn contract business - while only seeking landscape jobs that are enhancements to my exisiting lawn customers. I think it's important to have a solid foundation of lawn contracts. Mentally, it has been some relief from the stress of self-employment to refocus my goals in this way. Any thoughts on this subject?
