Kricket-

Welcome to the forums!

One thing I would recommend when you get a chem truck is to make sure the tank has baffels. This will stop any sloshing around in the tank and smooth your ride (and stops).

Good luck! = )

Hi Kricket,

Welcome to our forum. Can you tell us a little how you got started in business?

I have worked in Lawn Care for over 15 years. I have worked with two different lawn care companies before I decided to start a business of my own. My first two years I had a partner which didn't end up working out. We terminated the partnership and I started a new business of my own which I'm going on my 3rd year by myself. I provide the general lawn maintenance, landscape maintenance, chemical applications etc.

Oh very interesting!

A lot of people on the forum talk about partnerships. What advice would you have for a new business owner considering a partnership? Any pitfalls you suggest looking out for? And how best is it to resolve them?

I think if you're looking into a partnership, the #1 thing you have to consider is DO YOU KNOW YOUR PARTNER? You both have to have the same drive to succeed. I think partnerships can be a good thing as long as you keep the business relationship simply business and both give it your all with strong determination. I can't give you great tips on how to succeed with a partner because my partnership failed and I've very very happy to be on my own now. It's the best move I've ever made.
