    It's been a crazy couple months but we have seemed to weather fine. Had a new rad and belts and tensioners put in. Also bought and installed my head ache rack.

    This is my issue here, in what other industry could a under age child start and run a business? All it does is lower prices and reinforces people's perception this is a unskilled any body can do it job.

    I'm 17 and in less than 2 months I will have the paperwork for my llc submitted and insured because I will be 18. I totally disagree starting young, Trudeau started with a wagon and his walk behind and look at what he has now. I do not undercut I am friends with every landscaper In my area they don't mind me at all.

    No, what gives the industry a bad name is all of the hacks that tow 5x8 home depot trailers behind their mini vans or jeeps. Those are called low ballers. This guy is obviously not one of those people, and based on the amount of capitol he has in equipment he most likely charges the correct prices.

    He also has the desire to grow his business and become legal. This puts him ten steps ahead of the fully grown adults That work for cash and drive beat up sh!t around destroying people properties. His set up demonstrates professionalism and investment in the business

    The fact that an "under age child" can start and run a business is part of living in the warped society in which we all take part.

    There is nothing wrong with what he is doing. He is in fact getting ahead of his peers who all prefer the traditional rout and sit and play video games while he is working.

    To the OP, you have a great setup, I was in your posititon about a year ago, keep it up! What do you owe on the truck? Its beautiful. Once you are an LLC, make sure to get everything lettered up.
