Hey there I have been doing lawn care/maintenance for a while now, but until now didn't took this serious enough to do it full-time. Now that I'm ready for the next step I'm curious on what is everyone making as a salary for themselves and or profit. And what else are you doing to improve your overall financial health. Does this take too much time to do anything else? Is it possible that after a while the company can go on auto-pilot with you just managing and get a little bit of passive income or at the very least do minimal work? I ask because while I like the idea of having a business and am positive I will enjoy the overall experience (PITA customers and all), I am not so sure of wanting to do this this more than 20 years from now (I'm 22). I know it takes time to build a significant enough amount of wealth to go the passive income route, but is it possible that -with enough time for business development and with the right people- this business could be run on auto-pilot, sustain itself and provide good passive income? **By good I mean between 1k-2k monthly as it is enough to cover basic expenses and a little bit of play money. And main reason I don't see myself here after 20 years is that I believe one should not be stuck doing the same thing until your body stops working, I believe one should do something, 'conquer' it and move on to the next challenge so that one continues experiencing new things and keep growing and not stall.
