Okay, so here is my story and questions. I am 55, retired and BORED out of my skull. I have done all the honey dos and stuff around the house and want to do something more. Something to bring in some extra money and to keep busy a few days a week. Say 4 days per week. I have spent the last 30 years on the road in sales. I have owned a small company and have developed successful business plans to buy another company that I decided not to, (another story).I have managed territories that netted 10-15 million a year and have suffered thru what all that entails. I no longer wish to be inside, or on the road, nor do I know if I want to own my own business, (this would be another option and questions on this later on). Been there, done that, dont know if I want to do it again. I would be happy to form my own LLC, obtain liability insurance and my own equipment. I would be happy just running around cutting on a Zturn machine and not doing much else. I do not mind a 10 hour day, just dont want it 6 days in a row anymore. As I said, I would buy my own machine and trailer and sub to someone if I were guaranteed enough lawns to cover my costs. All I really want to do is be outside, cut a few lawns 4 days a week. As benefits, I see that I would absorb all the maintenance costs of the equipment, fuel etc Questions: 1. Is that realistic? 2. Do any of you guys sub out like that? 3. About what do you pay if you do? 4. Any pit falls in doing it this that I would want to be aware of?
