    I finally just quit my job of 20 years, last 3 as a acting Superviser
    went in with a couple of buddies who did all the work, they wanted me to partner up because they were ready to expand and felt I could get them there, That was a year ago...Today we
    have 4 60" lexmarks, 1 72" and a 36", we have 5 trucks the oldest a 2001, 1 enclose trailer, 1 dump trailr, 2 landscaping trailers, 1 dump truck, 1 Kubota tractor with buckets, 4 snow plow blades both front and rear, 9 workers , I partner takes care of equipment and manpower, the other deals stricly with the city contracts and residential and I handle the commercial landscaping and what direction the business is heading...We have roughly $ 375,000 worth of 3 years contracts in just grass cutting and snowplowing not counting landscaping...My question is...Is that good for 2 years in the business? My goal is to having us doing a mil a year minimun in 2 - 3 years

    Sounds pretty good. How many income producing assets do you own?

    If by your question you mean myself.. everything we own is under the company's name and every piece of equiptment is being used...we each have put $ 100,000 into the business and we are under the first right to buy if one of us wants to buy
