    I did it!!!

    I started my own business. Starting with the basics, and i mean basics. But i have been putting out flyers and sending emails. My goals are 50 accounts. 25 in one community of 3,000 homes and 25 in another community.

    I am SO pumped. Its tough to get past the first two months not having any money and and a wife nine pregnant.

    Good luck to all. Don't give up. I see a lot of people selling equipment they bought and did not do anything to start the business.

    You have to have a Passion, and get off your Azz and do something.


    P.S. I am getting ALOT of people complaining about the service they currently have. Does not pull weeds, runs over and breaks irrigation heads, cuts pool screen with line trimmer ect. ect.

    Good luck rodbite. I wish I could get 15 accounts in one week. Only got 8 accounts in 2 weeks. I lost 2 because they moved.
