I was able to land a new customer at the beginning of the year that was the father of a boy on my baseball team that I coach. He said his lawn looked like crap and asked if I could help. Nice house ($349,000), start mowing lawn, got his mulch work, tree plantings. Got me a nice job to redo the common areas at the end of there housing development. Weather was dry, asked me if I wanted to build him a deck, (nice expensive custom built deck) then a paver patio off the deck. Pays great, gave me a $400.00 tip on one of the deck billings. So any ways, I am over there the other day, we where shootin the breeze, and I mention to him that my neighbor was selling a truck that I always wanted, so on and so forth. We continue to talk about the future patio and after a while he excuses himself. Ten minutes comes back out to me, hands me a check for $3800 and tells me to go buy that truck. I of course refuse but he insists. Then tells me don't worry about payback we can work something out on labor, says we'll get it figured out. Told me to put truck title in my name. Says he knows I am trying to start and grow a business and he feels by doing this he is helping me acheive my goals. Unbelievable.
