I'm looking for some advice from some pros already out there doing this on a day to day basis. I have been in the auto industry for 5 years now. I have also cut a couple lawns on the side for cash on my day off. About a month ago I decided that I want out of the auto business and thought to myself, maybe I should just cut grass and do lite installs. So I went go on the computer drafted up a nice little one page flyer and hit the road for two days straight. The areas I hit are burbs south of Cleveland. The neighboor hoods are HUGE and all have postage stamp size lawns.I cut 2 lawns in the area right now at a rate of $25 to mulch $30 to catch. Like i said i went out with this flyer door to door and just slid it in the door, I passed out roughly 1,400 in two days. On the flyer was my name, what i do and the cost for that persons yard. I didn't print the cost, instead I hand wrote it in to make it look more personalized. The first couple of days I didn't get a response at all..no big deal, only thing invested was time and paper. Then the 3rd day hit, my phone rang of the hook. So after a week or so I am up to almost 100 people who would like to retain my services for next cutting season. These aren't 100 people interested, these are 100 people ready to sign a contract. I never expected this to happen but it did. I've read this forum from front to back and almost everyone suggests not going in this business full time right away. I am fortunante enought to already have a truck and I can pay cash for the equipment if need be. What do you suggest I do? Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to your response.
