Ahhh.... Funny how you would think I would be "Hitting the 'ole Pipe" !! LOL Not so.... I stopped mowing so I could take a Manager position with CVS. Good Pay and Whole Health insurance for my Family. When I quit mowing I had 98 Yearly accounts in which about 30 decided to go a different way and the other 60+ I handed off to my Father in Law to take over. I then Sold off all my equipment (which was stupid)!!! I averaged about $78/acct for Mow n Go service. This was 5 years ago actually this DECEMBER! I had a helper 2-3 days a week and did the rest either by myself or my wife would come along and ride the mower. She was a pro riding my Great Dane and also My Yard Shark.

I have since quit CVS and now work as an Asst. Manager at a High end Grocery store. Every day I go to work all I think is getting back out there and enjoying the weather and servicing my customers. I dont plan on financing anything so It will be about 2 months before Im all set with my equipment. My goal is this time next year to have about 30 to 50 residential accounts. (no low balling either)

Well there is my short story....
