Congratulations on landing the new client! Once you get started with them, you can look into attracting their neighbors too!

That sounds good. I plan on starting in the next couple weeks. I hope it isnt too late. I will be keeping my fulltime job as well for now. I was looking at craftsman 21" commercial mower. Big power, self propelled, and it has the front casters like the big walk behinds. $500.

thatd be great to start in my opinion..i would never jump into getting a commercial mower..not until i had a sold client base

and thanks steve..im already trying to design attractive flyers for neighbors..you might have seen my last thread,,i wasnt thinking to clearly yesterday ahah
