If you had an extra $5,000 or $10,000 or $20,000.

What would you do with it?

Would you use it to help your business grow? If so, how?

I would be able to expand my business as where I want it.

I would be able to afford another truck (bigger so I can add a plow)

I would be able to afford a Zero turn mower for more productivity that can get me more customers in 1 day. I am getting tired of bouncing around on that tractor and going around circles, feels like i'm going no where

And I would be able to trade in that piece of junk trailer that I purchased when I started since I didn't know how crappy it was built in the first place, there's always a first time for anything.

I could possibly hire a helper that could make things faster/easier

well a thousand post cards, a half page ad in the local paper for 8 runs is only 899.00 (paper only runs wed & sat) And maybe sponsor a bbq cook out for the next town meeting or somthing like that.

Very interesting ideas!

sponsor a bbq cook out for the next town meeting or somthing like that.

Is this something you have seen done before or no? If you did this, can you tell us what you ideally would like to do? What would this consist of?

Never seen a LCO do it but a car dealership has done it about five times and a A/C co has done it about 3 or 4 times, i figure it must be working for them or why would they keep doing it. They get a lg sponsor banner and are listed in the paper as the sponsor of the next town hall meeting, and pass out a bunch of flyers at these things to.

This kinda makes me think of another post where we were talking about hosting a local block party as a way to get to know the neighbors in your area.
