Just wanted to say Hello to all and thanks for this sight. I just left a job i had been at 23 years last fall and now hope to get into the mowing buisiness with hopefully some success. I really hate the thoughts of finding another job working for someone else so i thought this would be a good opportunity to be my own boss. i will probably have many questions along the way so pleasebe patient with me.

What did you do before and do you have any experience running a business? Where are you from? Congrats on the new venture!

I was a draftsman drawing blue prints for 23 years. and i worked part time at UPS the last 7 of those. My plans now if they work out are to continue the UPS part time and do the mowing.

Welcome to our forum!

What have you found to be the toughest part so far of starting your own business?

Finding clients and picking a mower to start with.
