    I'm sure that this question has been asked prior to now, but since I did not notice any comparable threads, I will ask it.

    How many years have Y O U been in business?

    I'm very curious about this, so please just bare with me.
    Also, are Y O U the owner, crew leader, or just a measely worker bee?

    Im 28. I too have been juggling all the titles for the past 6 yrs. I would like to pose another question. For Rich, cos, Barkleymut, and any other 1 man operation who has been in this field for 5- 8 yrs. How many lawns do you do?

    Umm... It doesn't really matter how many lawns any one person might do because conditions vary so greatly from place to place and company to company that it would be like comparing apples to oranges. We have been down this arguement several times already.

    I understand. Just wanted to compare. In my eyes peers as well as competition makes for a good motivator. If I was starting out and had a plan I would want to know where I would be in 5-8 yrs. thats all.
