I finished up mowing about 4 weeks ago and Im already anticipating next season. I have always run this business part time but with insurance and good equipment and taxes. I figured I would do it part time till I "made it" in a corporate setting (which I have never done), I have never come close to the per hour earnings I make mowing, in any other job I have ever held. I realized today I am a LIFER!! They will probably bury me on that Scag mower. By then I will probaly be frozen to it. I could be happy mowing the rest of my life but I think I will have a lot of trouble meeting a wife on that mower. That really is the only worry I have about this line of work.
