I just move to an new town 1 year ago. I work for a company that has 8 employes and have been in business for 1year and 4 months. They did 200,000 their first year and we are slamed right now. I don't get paid but 300.00 per week and I want to start my own company. I've tried flyers,cold calls,face to face meetings with builders,passed out business cards,etc..and I can't get one yard to cut.Do I have to try and buy accounts from some other company or what.That is how my boss got rolling.Also how do you come up with the money to get started? I have no one to get a loan from,and have tried the bank.I did two installs for a builder and had great feed back form him and others but that was all. No word of mouth spread to anyone.My yard recives complements from many people driving by (I cut it with an locke reel).I've had professinal signs made up and put in my yard and recieved not one call from it. What could I be doing wrong. Any help would be great.Thanks for your comments.
