Very true indeed about many businesses but I do truly believe lawncare has a higher success rate. I sustained my failed fireproofing business for over 1 year with lawncare profits alone before I threw in the towel. That business was like playing the lottery. One day it would seem as though I was about to score a contract for a $1,000,000 job and the next day I'm beating on doors to mow lawns. I finally gave up because the insurance, quotas, and other cost were drowning me out. The only reason I held on for a full year was because I was dealing contracts that were required by state and federal law to have fireproofing done the their buildings but in the end they just took the fine instead because it was cheaper. I almost lost my house and I sold all of personal belongings for cheap just to make the bills. Lawncare is differant though. It is so much more consistant and predictable. I actually don't have to look hard to get work.
