Alright, well I have been searching this site for a few years now and learned a ton from the people on here. I started out cutting some neighbors yards at 12 while also working at my neighbors lawn mower shop, but with school and such it was off and on until I hit 16 and had a Buick and a push mower. I mowed for one summer like that, but ended up getting a job (Kroger, I know, hit the big times) and not doing the lawn gig. I had been around landscaping since I was born due to my dad owning a large company here, but moved it to Arizona. I've known since I was young that deep down I always wanted my own company, so I worked at getting back into it, and have worked hard so far to get where I am now. My company is still very small compared to the large companies in my area, but I work at getting bigger every day. When I turned 18 I left Kroger and got a job at an apartment complex as maintenance, where I am working now. I have a few people in my corner giving me moral support, however a lot that just say I will crash and burn. The people on this site have given me a lot of hope for my own company. That was last year, and over the course of the year I was able to save money from Kroger and finance an F150, and while working full time at the apartments, I worked part time doing lawns out of the back of my truck. I became an LLC, and covered my company completely with liability insurance from the get go. I decided to go the road less traveled and did not go to school after high school. I know that is something that is looked down on, but I sacrificed my school for my business. I know I could learn much more, but working full time + my business runs 10 hour days and the money outweighed the schooling right now. I by no means come from a high income family, so financially I saw it as the best option, and this is basically my future on my shoulders. I have 20+ books I've bought and read, and with my dad being a landscape architect/nursery grower, I look to him to be as much of a teacher as anyone, even being 2500 miles away. When I am full time with my lawn company only, I want to look at education to get my landscape architectural license. So, sorry for the life story, I'll get on to the pictures. I wanted to start a thread, like many on here, that will document my work and equipment over time. I hope I can continue to work and grow, and hopefully amass the success that most contribute to this site. It will be hard work, but I feel I can do it. I know I have a lot of competition in my area, but I would like to look more to them as mentors, not as much competitors. I mean, they got to where they are today for some reason, right? Right now I don't have much in terms of equipment, but look to get more as I continue to get more accounts lined up. My Stealth 33" and my Ariens 21" 6x12 Dual Ramp Trailer Back End of Truck & Trailer Shot of Current Equipment, Minus Handtools/ETC I'll get more pictures as I go, thanks for looking!
