Congratulations to John for getting all this media attention. The media loves to write articles on hard working entrepreneurs.

Young entrepreneur making big bucks while still in school (http://www.herald-dispatch.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070318/NEWS01/703180317/1001/NEWS10) - He's still in school, and his company made $40,000 last year. He wants to save enough money to buy a home before he graduates. And he plans to buy and pay for 20 rental properties by the time he's 45.

And he probably will.

John Perry III is the owner of GrassBusters Lawn Care, which boasts three employees and may have two more this summer. The company already has a branch office in Provo, Utah, thanks to Perry's cousin Nick Perry, who is studying at Utah Valley State College in Orem.

"He took some equipment with him," John Perry says. "He's going to start up out there."

Perry, a business management sophomore at Marshall University, is the 21-year-old son of John Perry II, founder of DirtBusters Janitorial Services ** which likely had a lot to do with instilling in him the entrepreneurial spirit. In fact, young Perry's company logo is the same hard-working cartoon character that his dad came up with, except he is seen with a lawn mower instead of a mop and bucket.

It was hard for me to make out the character's face.
