I work alone and have for the last 5 years partially because I have another job on the fire department and my schedule is screwy. The other reason is that I sell my business on personal service, I go to all lawns that I have accounts for. I pick up some permium business because the college kids had races on the customers lawn. I would like to someday have a helper but I still would have to be on each lawn. I am not saying it is bad to have crews and employees but the mix has to be right, you have to have a foreman that is just like you. I appreciate the companies that have super employees and many crews but in my situation the way I do it works for me. <br>I recently had the opportunity to have my brother-in law help me during a day in the dethatching season and we kicked butt on time and it looked good. He is from out of town and visiting but he asked to help, I wish he stayed for a few more days.<br>Whatever works for you is whats right and I am glad I had the opportunity to try with a helper, if the right situation arises I might change.
