OK, so we're considering moving to the Palm Harbor/Clearwater/St Pete area, and my tentative plan is to begin working part time in lawn care, and learning via experience and as much school as I can how to be full service eventually and full time. I worked part time last year on evenings/weekends doing lawn maintenance and small landscaping. My question for any in this Tampa and surrounding areas : is it unrealistic for me to find a niche in the market because there are probably already hundreds of LCO's in the area? Or, is the area booming enough that I could get a toe in the door that could lead to at least getting my foot in the door after a year or so? I will have other income from my current full time vocation, so I don't plan to try to live solely off of this type of business at first. I have started on a business plan, and we are going to be visiting the area May 20-23 to look around at apartments/rental houses, and I also plan to visit any chamber of commerce offices and hopefully at least talk to someone in Pinellas county about starting a business in the county. I value the opinions on this forum, and really appreciate any input.
