    Curious? What dollar value would you think my company is worth? We are 70% commercial, 30% residential. All maintenance company (stopped doing landscaping last year), 95% of our income is monthly bill, contract work. We have a few "per cut" clients but most contracts one- year with a couple 2-year contracts. We will invoice just over $200,000.00 this season with about $30,000.00 in cash business on the side. If I sell I will sell with

    If you are turning that kind of money with only the equipment mentioned, you must have found the secret we are all looking for.....

    Obviously you have an extra number in that total....
