    I have 20 lined up for next yr; had only ten this yr. But I'm only 16 so its not that bad.:cool2: If I could drive a could easily triple that #.:clapping:

    Dad had about 275 accounts 3yr.s into the business with 2 crews out mowing. Around here its easy to have lots of accounts because of how densely populated this area is. My 20 are only about 1block x 4 blocks deep from going door-to-door & handing out flyers.

    its kinda hard to get 45 accounts just like that im lucky if i get 20 accounts around here thats why i go out of my area like somtimes 20 to 30 and somtimes 50 miles.(if its worth it over 5 acres which hasnt happned yet but maybe).
