I just heard about the forum from a friend. Ive just started Aarons Lawn Service this year in central Florida. I look forward to learning more about the business from the more experienced guys here as well as sharing if Im able to help. Also - if there is anyone around central FL area who does tree trimming, I get tons of requests for that work and would be interested in someone who may pay referals to deal with.

What got me started in starting my lawn business is pretty simple. I actually went to school to be an auto tech and have worked on cars my whole life. However, the dealership I was working at went under and the car repair business in general isnt doing very well. Ive always been interested in landscaping and have always enjoyed using my hands. I had some money put away and already had a few clients (friends) that were willing to hire me right away. Ive been trying to build and expand ever since and want to learn as much as possible so I can service my customers to the best of my ability. Ive already found some great advice on here and hope to keep learning. Thank you for the welcome>

How have you felt about the transition from being an employee to an entrepreneur? Have there been any parts of that transition you felt were easier than expected or tougher than expected?
