  • New from Canton, GA area

    Hello,
    I am new to this forum and have found it very helpful. I am actually seriously trying the business venture. Unfortunately, I lost my dad last year and he owned a lawn care business in Maryland. I bought all of his equiptment and truck to Georgia to sell, but thought that I might get more money long term if I try to start a business. My neighbor was unemployed, so he actually does all the bidding and cutting for me, I do marketing and advertising and find the accounts. I have been using fliers, door hangers and service magic. Its been two weeks so far, I have 10 customers.

    And I am using the Gopher Software and love it.

    Thanks

    I am very sorry about your father.

      So far running the business has been great. I have been working on the website, fliers, business cards and trying the get new business. So I have been really busy. One of the difficulties I have is that I know nothing about lawn care and have to rely on others to bid the jobs and actually go out and cut the yards. That is a work in progress though as I have the time to learn and am willing to.
