Long story short 6 years ago I decided after working for 4 years for local landscape company to start my own. And while I didn't lose any money I didn't make much either in combo with a two vehicle payments and a house bought at a prime price I took a carpentry job for 5 years and weathered the building market crash making pretty good money till last thanksgiving.So now I feel im in a pretty good spot. I have unemployment that meets the bare necessity's and my wife can finish her last year of nursing school and I get to be around my 3yo son at a very cool time in life, not to mentioned the savings in child care. So looking back at my previous attempt at a business the things i did wrong were staggering...lol alot of things I should have subbed I did my self. And basically was trying to do everything. And aimed for a larger company with employes ect. Well now I just want to mow with one truck/trailer and do some snow plowing. The blend of building decks and mowing lawns would be the perfect situation. A few friends of mine do the caretaker kinda gig and seem to do well. Anyways, I have a 48" Huslter w/catcher blower trimmer ect. all your basic mowing route stuff. So im thinking about throwing out some advertising and seeing if I can generate 2-3 days of smallish property's. Nothing to crazy. Maybe im crazy.
