but I'm considering leaving the corporate life and starting my own lawn business to possibly include snow removal as I don't know what kind of living could be made on just cutting grass in the midwest. Anyway, I know there are a lot of variables out there, but I'm just trying to get an idea where a lot of people are at. Please answer if you currently employ yourself as I certainly wouldn't be at the point to have any help yet. After working in a union environment, it would be a lot less stressful to me to do something like this. It's not to say that it's not going to be hard work and stress free, but something much more my style.
