    Whoa, I think I am having a flash of inspiration!

    There are people on here fairly often asking, "Should I buy this lawn service?" Do a search on posts by "Vanessa." And I have seen several instances locally where a small time lawn service was sold to some newby for a few bucks more than I would think it was worth. The usual rule here is "a month's revenue for the accounts and whatever the equipment is worth in its current condition." I know that varies from one part of the country to another. But even here I have heard of people paying 2 or 2 1/2 month's revenue.

    So apparently there are people who want to be in the lawn business and who do not want to build it for themself. Well, I have already experienced that. I sold the bulk of my accounts and a Grasshopper early this year, so I could get a job that provides health insurance. So now, as some are aware, I do the lawn-thang part-time, have a whole 7 lawns and spend about 3 hours a week at it. Five are small lawns that could all be done with a 21".

    But what if? I build my accounts to maybe 12 little lawns, and advertise "Lucrative part-time business. Half a day weekly grosses you $1500 a month. Established part-time lawn mowing business, all you need is a small pick-up, all necessary equipment included with accounts. Great expansion potential. " We all know a lot of people (who have never been in the business) think a couple of cans of gas a week is the only expense.

    Think I would get a lot of calls?
