Hello all... I've been a member here for 4 years, but all that time was spent just researching and mostly homeowner questions. I am a career firefighter in metro Atlanta and needed something to supplement my income. I've worked mostly two FT jobs with the second being on an ambulance. Also spent a few years working for another FF running heavy equipment. Anyway, my wife quit work last fall to stay at home with our 2 yo daughter and HAD to do something. Three weeks ago, after ALOT of research, hesitation, and procrastination...I started my business. I bought a new Hustler mini-Z 52"/19, a new Stihl 110 combi with edger and using the Stihl trimmer and handhelf blower I had. I use my 5X10 trailer and my Tacoma truck with door and tailgate magnets. Many are probably already thinking I am a scrub, but I hope not. I've only got 6 accounts so far, but getting GREAT feedback from customers and neighbors. Two of the six accounts are from neighbors who were pleased with my work. I advertise as much as I can, and have alot of word out from friends, family, co-workers and other LCO's. My short-term goals are to do GREAT work first of all, upgrade trailer, purchase BP blower before fall leaf season, and continue to grow. I've gained a tremendous amount of information from this website and other LCO's. One of them is also a member here and has a large business in West Georgia and has been a TREMENDOUS help!! Anyway, this website is GREAT, and the members are even better. I have an awesome dealer that is very supportive of his customers which has been a great help. Y'all keep the information coming, and keep up the great work.
