I put up an ad on craigslist, offering a job to students on their summer break.

My email box is FLOODED.

Out of all of them, one 13 year old kid sent me a message - & for some reason I think that's exactly what is necessary. I'm just waiting for a reply with his parents consent.

He has room to develop & grow with my company, 6 years until he can get his drivers permit = he can't start his own business & rip me off.

If he's suddenly not interested, I'll just hire one of the several woman who emailed me :D boo-yah!

I spent all day looking at resumes/C.V's , they all look like crap & are pathetically written out, sloppy. Does this mean they don't pay attention to detail when it comes to lawn maintenance? :p

I also got an email from some 100 year old looking guy - only with craigslist, eh?

Keep us posted on how the employee situation goes.

That is fantastic! Maybe you can market to the neighbors of your current customers to build your routes out more.
