I've been in the business since '92 on a part-time, then full-time basis. Competition is not a factor, just the soaring overhead costs of insurance, trucks, equipment, and a warehouse. ' I have awesome commercial and residential accounts. I have created a tremendous network of affiliate mowing companies and vendors. My employees are dedicated and work very hard. Doesn't it sound like everything a guy would want? Everything but $$$. I became spoiled in past years by a professional salary and cannot make the same money in this business full-time. The business has grown dramatically, but it requires that I manage the operation and the clients, rather than earn money in the field. I believe it is time to shop for someone to take over the operation / clients. Just wanted to share with some folks who understand what it means to give it your all, stay legal, and fight the good fight.
