    i will soon be switching jobs (cnc machinist) i will be quitting my night job (4,10's mon-thur 2:30 to 1pm)

    i will be starting my day job in 3 weeks (mon-fri 6-2:30)

    i have about 35 lawns that i will be doing after i get done with my full time job.

    this won't leave much time to be surfing the web at work. no internet at the new job.


    i hope i'm able to pull this off. i have quite a bit of work lined up.

    good luck! i just did the same thing after 10 years of full time mowing. in april i got a job with the electric co. working mon-fri, 40 hours and love it. i tried to keep alot more lawns than i could handle though. but it was ok cause i kept enough that as the weeks went by i was able to drop certain ones instead of not having enough. it took a few weeks but now i have a good schedule that i can handle. i'll still cut 8 lawns a week with my other 40 hours.

    Good luck, it's difficult to do, however, if you manage you're time well, it can be done !!

    i will be going from making parts out of brass for phone companies to making medical parts made out of medical grade titanium.... so it's going to get quite a bit more difficult.

    You can do it, They are trying to get me to come back to a machine shop. But I am too lazy right now, I want to be a yard boy for now. I hope you do well.:)

    good luck to you.
