Hi Adam,

Welcome to our forum!

What got you interested in starting your own business?

I became interested right after my football career came to an end, and said "what's next". I love outdoors, working with my hands, being my own boss, and making people happy by creating something beautiful for them to look at. Its no slouch, but I am really enjoying the business.

That is very interesting!

I wonder if you could create a football theme in your business name? Like end goal lawn or something like that?

Hunkered down man trying to stay dry! We have seen a lot worse though. On the bright side I will have a lot of storm cleanup business, and have gotten a good bit of marketing done.

Same here. I plan to pick up a lot of business doing clean ups and tree removal over the coming weeks. Also good money to be made gutting houses in my area.

With the storm coming in, were you able to get out and market storm cleanups or do you wait until after the storm is gone to do that?
