How do you manage your mowing?

When I mow,,lets say I have three days wed thurs, fri, i usually mow, sun up to sun down,,alone...solo...

Now,,as I take on more customers,,what do I do with my week,,,so I hire a crew,,,do i put them in these yards rain or shine,,,,,and let the rain only slow em down?

What do you do with these rains problems?

if the crew mows 3 days a week,,and i add another full day of service mowing,,now thats 4 days....so what do i do if it rains mon, tues, and weds? just kep them out there>>\?

Rule of thumb: Never take on more than three days worth of cutting. If you can't cut all your accounts in three sunny days you are spreading yourself out too thin. I'm not saying you have to cut everything in three days all the time, but if it rained the first two days of the week per say, you should be able to finish up all your yards w/o using a Saturday, Just my opinion, take it what it's worth.:D

Thats when my collage guys come back to work for me. Rite now Im doing it all solo. 12 hours a day 6 & 7 days a week. Just weighed myself as I noticed my belt is loose and I went from 230 to 207lbs. Thank god I stay in shape, most 43 year olds would have dropped dead by now. Good thing I love this work
