Hey guys,
I'm new to the site and hope to get alot of help and guidance from you all. I am David with Southern Lawn Care and more. I have been doing this on the side for about 8 years and recently went into it full time last year as i got laid off from office job and my accounts began to grow with the lawn business. now i am full time and love it.

Hi David,

Welcome to our forum!

What is your view on running your business part time for that many years before you got into it full time? Are you glad you did it that way or would you have preferred to do it another way?

Welcome David,

Do as much reading throughout these threads as you possibly can. You NEVER know what you may learn! Sounds like yo have a good heads up on the business, keep your chin up and let everyone know if you have any questions.

I have a feeling that this tends to frighten many would be entrepreneurs. Now that you have gotten into things, what is your view on why people shouldn't be scared of there being competition out there?

Have there been a few lessons you could share with us that stood out to you?
