Worked as a equipment operator/tri-axle driver. Then diagnosed with brain cancer (30years old). A month later my daughter was born. After spinal cord surgery and now a very bad back i was finally able to mow my lawn. But since it was too much for me to do the 1 acre lot with a 21" push now i decided to buy a rider. Well i wanted a commercial and got a great deal on a ferris ztr which has a suspension(easier on back). That was the first day of my business. Not intentionally! I enjoyed mowing the lawn with the new mower and was dissapointed it only took 10 min! haha So i looked for a couple extra yards to do. With each new yard i took the stronger my back has become. Well now its 3 years and 63 accounts later and i am strong like bull. New truck and lots of equipment. I still have limitations and sometimes i think im doing too much but i figure i may as well do it while i can. Still have cancer but MRI's show that its not growing! Next year i will hire full time help. Good luck to you all.
