Hi Cowboy,

Welcome to our forum! Why not start off slow this year and just do a few jobs on the weekend? Get your feet wet. Even if you start with a push mower, just get all the gears working and then you will be even in a better position for next year when you want to go full time.

What's your thought on that?
