  • Hello everyone.

    I am Jason and I live in Colorado. I opened my business 3 years ago in the middle of the season in 2008. I have since grown quite a bit but it seems like this year has been pretty bad. Especially now at the end of the end of the season. Even my first year in business, i wasnt this slow at the end of the year. Anyone else been slower than usual? I just found and joined the forum a week ago or so and i wish I had found it years ago when i started my business. I have done everything on my own and built what i have now from the ground up. I believe i have turned it into a very successful company and I am continuing to grow as much as i can.

    The problem I figure, is that we tend to lose our passion or interest mid way through the season. If we could all somehow take a week off to refresh and prioritize, I'm sure we'd be more eager to spend more time with advertising and actually getting more work.

    Personally, this year, I was nothing but tired. It's always my mission to get the day done and over with. Taking on new work was kind of like cleaning up a mess only right after, someone spills coffee on your carpet... lol

    A break is always the best thing, during the winter I only think about lawn maintenance and how I can improve, I get excited. When the time does come, my excitement fades and everything becomes routine 'just trying to get everything done so I can finally relax'.

    If the people you hire aren't 100% perfect, get rid of them. Their negativity and lazyness will rub off on you as you adjust your pace to fit their needs.
