Hi folks. I'm just getting started in a little (very little) lawn care business and have lurked around here from time to time absorbing whatever gems of knowledge I can. I've maintained a few account on the side from time to time over the years but this year I want to try to make it legitimate. I have partnered up with a childhood friend who has about 30 regular customers and has been trying (unsuccessfully) to get a reliable helper. So we figured he wants a helper I want to get a real business going, he has much more hands on lawn care experience than me yet I have a background in sales, marketing and small business so we figured we will give it a run. I'll be here asking all manner of dumb questions in the coming days, weeks, months so please be patient.
