    Sean Adams,
    hi, I just ordered the lawn business kit from lawn I am really looking forward to reading the information. I also appreciate all the hard work I'm sure it took for you to put this together.
    I just have one question, I didn't see any information about how long it would take for the business kit to be mailed.

    Thank you

    Normally we process the order right away, wait for confirmation, take it to USPS and it is supposed to take 3-5 business days. We were a little behind because we received so many orders at one time and had to have more printed....and since we are putting this in binders and clear-sleeving each page, there is some expense behind it.

    If anyone else has any questions or comments, please e-mail me at and I will get back to you right away.
