    I ran my own kiddie lawn maintenance business for about 8 years... Then I got out and have been in the construction (management) industry for the past 7 years.

    I need more education on landscaping and business, in my opinion, before I go full bore back into it. Plus, I need to rebuild my equipment.

    What is the best way to obtain the required information needed? I was considering an online distance course, such as Thomson Education Direct, or someone like that, but I have no idea what kind of real-world application this is.

    Also, should I start out like I did many years ago, with a truck, trailer and a walk behind, with a trimmer, or is it better to invest more at first and be more aggressive about rebuilding clients?

    Unfortunately, I'm not in the same area, so re-gaining existing clients is impossible.

    Thank-you in advance!!
