    Well, guys after a few years in the business I'm calling it quits. Sold my Biz and its final.

    Too tight of market here in Fla, too hot and humid. :) Anyway, thanks for all the advice that inabled me to build this business into something worth selling. I've learned more on this website than any other source, except trial and error, and most of that error coming from trying to do things different than what the old timers on here have told me. "I've found a better way to do it." LOL !!!!

    Anyways, good-bye and good luck out there.

    Sorry to hear about this, but we can always give you advice as a homeowner. :)

    Stop back and visit when you can. What are you going to do now for income? I don't think I could take that heat and humidity down there either. Good luck to you.

    I can only imagine working in that heat down there. I cannot stand the few days in the high eighties that we have here.

    What are you doing now since sold biz?

    I would like to congratulate & commend you for building your business into "something worth selling". It shows all of us that building a thriving business can be done with hard work and perseverance... And a little help from the "old timers" at Lawnsite!

    Best of luck in your next "adventure".

    Not to upset anyone but I think there is a bad misconception about Fl. weather. I lived in Cinti. until 3 years ago when we moved down here. Cinti in the summer was terrible. Hot, humid and smog! Down here where we are, there is no industry to ruin the air and the heat just lasts a little longer, it's really no hotter here at least in my opnion. I used to feel the same until I actually moved here. Sorry to get a little off subject. Good luck to you Mike.

    Good luck 2 u. I was about to hang it up this year also, but with the economy slipping, I had to stay. But I'm pushing hard for new customers this year and if it doesn't turn around I will be forced to get out.
