Hi, I am Michael and here is my story. I have been in business for the last 6 years. I started with a Honda Harmony II self-propelled, echo 2100 blower, and cheap curved shaft trimmer. As my signiture shows, I have grown quite a bit to 20 lawns a week making about $400 per week. I plan to get much larger accounts next year using the new mower (next sentence). My latest purchase is a 2005 eXmark Metro 48 with all accessories. I really need to figure out how to get a business license and some kind of liability insurance. For the time being, I have to be extra cautious. Well, I live the site, it has helped me a lot. Well that's my story! Please respond, I appreciate the input.
