The newspaper reported that a guy in Maine who started his own lawn care company in 1999 just won $5,900,000. He says his life might change a little. He wants to keep mowing lawns but wants to buy a bigger mower. Reported income last year of $20,000.

I think I'd hire someone to chauffer me to the jobsites.

If i won that much money i wouldnt even mow my own lawn anymore. Amazes me when lottery winners say they will keep their jobs. I would be sitting on a beach in Hawaii and/or travelling the world

Funny, I am planning on winning the Big Game lotto tonight. $40 mil ought to last me a lifetime. I'm with Charles, only I'm going to be in Nags Head one month and in the mountains the next.

I would keep up with the bz and just expand. I enjoy what I do and would continue it as long as I am healthy.

lawncutting is work, u work to make money, if u have that much money, u dont need to make money. retirement is a state of finance, not an age!if u r 18, and have enough money, u retire, if u r 65, and dont have enough money, u work...very simple. i would never cut grass again

I couldnt stop what I like to do...Yes I would retire early (late 40's), but I wouldn't quit what I love.
