Why businesses succeed or fail? Why do some lawn companies disappear in a year and some grow to be big companies? Is there a definate key to success or failure. How did some of you "BIG DOGS" out there grow to be the companies you are now, while others fall off the face of the earth. I believe a big key to success in this business is hard work as well as a solid business plan and keeping your expenses in check. As for why people fail I am not to sure, too much overhead, too lazy, too dumb. I don't know. Tell me what you think. I know we have touched on this before but there are a lot of new members since then.
