ive been in the LC industry for 10+ yrs and im starting to see the light in being a owner op. Im starting to get word of mouth leads from commercial properites and friends and aquaintences want me to cut their homes and are reffering me to others. I dont even own a mower and im getting leads and i dont think i can turn this stuff down Im not even advertising though the area appers to somewhat saturated with the Sears Craftsmens (scrubs) guys popping up everywhere. Im sick of the $12.00 8 months a yr and pittaly unemployment in the winter i get as a employee. So can I make good coin like $30.000-50.000 or whatever staying solo?? How diversified would i have to be meaning can i just mow and do cleanups or do i have to prune and fert/weed control??? However i would plow snow and i dont want employees. Most residential cuts are bout $35-40 a cut My problems are i still live in a apartment so i cannot store anything i also still have some credit card debt and owe on my blazer. Should i buy a home so i can store my equipment but how do you do that when you only make $12 a hr??? arrgghhh!! would that Lawncare success manual be helpful?? Where to start??
