    I own a few retail stores in wireless, and was looking to "separate my eggs". Is this a good business to look into?
    I recently bought commercial equipment including 61" ZTR, and all Stihl commercial blowers/edgers/trimmers, etc for my home. In addition I have a 33" snapper rider w/ bagger, and 50" Craftsman 20hp Kohler w/ lawn sweeper. I have a truck, and 6'10"X12 trailer. Should I consider this business, and if so, what would be the first step to be sure there is a need in this area for another company? Or, should I sell my homeowner equipment and use my commercial stuff for my 5 acres and it would last forever? I just did not know if (a) there is good money here, and (b) should I let my commercial equipment sit there all the time, or let it make me money? Any ideas/suggestions appreciated....
