    Wondering what other businesses you guys have run besides lawncare. Anybody have plans of jumping into another business in the future?

    ie another service, retail, restaraunt, contractor, manufacturing outfit, etc?

    I have had over 10 businesses in my life time, not counting the 5 that I currently own and operate, 2 retail stores, a landscaping and pond business, and two credit reporting agency's, one of which is solidcontract.com.... which protects all of us contractors.

    Owned and operated a crop dusting business for twenty six years prior to the lawn care business. Oh yeah, I did lawn care prior to the flying also.:) I guess I really enjoy mowing.
