    How do you guys work full time and take care of 30-40 accounts? I would think you would be working every second of every day. I am trying to build up to 30-40 accounts but am doing this full time this year with no job. By the way, we are getting tons of rain in OK also, I don't know how you guys will catch up if you have several days of rain and a full time job. Good luck.

    you have to work all day on the week ends. I am a fulltime college student so I get home about noon on T/R and 2:30 MWF. Its hard to keep up I believe I will have to drop a commercial yard that takes 31/2 hours and I only get 120.00 for so it should free up some time.

    Up here with finally got rid of our 100" of snow which made the ground nice and mushy, and now it rains every other day. We are so far behind on cleanups, and have so much landscaping to do, but better days will arrive, they always do. I used to stress out about it, but what can you do.

    jaybird, all you can do is wait until it gets nice enough to work. Then be ready to roll from there on out. :)
