  • Starting a new Company

    My Name is Jonathan I live just north of Birmingham, Alabama. I am 25 years old, Married to my wife of 5 years Melissa, and have a one year old son Jaxon.

    I basically got started wanting to do lawn care when a disabled lady from our church needed some flowers moved around in her yard and a new planting bed built. Well she started complaining about her lawn care guy and says she wishes she could get someone else, well I asked how much do you pay him and she said $50 every two weeks, well I said I would handle. It was 50 extra dollars and at the time I was unemployed. Well I am up to 5 customers now and hoping things keep growing.

    I am about to go back to school to get a degree in history education and horticulture. I want to teach along with my company so I can have a pretty good retirement

    Welcome to our forum!

    That is a great start so far.

    What kinds of things have you been doing to attract new customers?

      Well so far it has been word of mouth, but I have put out about 100 or so flyers, but I got no calls from them. I am about to put an ad in a local shoppers paper that has a service section and see how that goes.

      And Thanks for the site Steve there is a ton a great stuff on the site.

        I am glad it's been helpful. Have you experimented with craigslist yet too? That might be a good way of reaching out to local community members.

          not yet but yesterday I listed a weight bench on there and have received like 20 emails so I am going to do that for sure now. What section would you suggest listing it under.
