I am just starting my new lawn care business this spring in TN. I have worked off and on in the business. Just got tired of working for the man instead of being the man. Anybody got any tips? I am buying my first commercial mower and a trailer. I dont have a lot of money to start with ,a couple thousand. Any thoughts?

My best advice that I give everyone is start very small with your equipment. Don't go too quick too fast. Because if you go hog wild and purchase things left and right just for show you are going to be paying off debt.

Trust me, I was in the boat before. I went too fast and got lots of debt. Start small, but think big. Do not be embarassed if you don't have a 21" push mower, a weed eater trimmer brand, and a broom to brush sidewalks and driveways clean with. You have to start somewhere.
