Thanks Everyone!

Littles: *Thanks for the kind words!

Pmblair: *Thanks. *As far as running the company at the early age, you have to act like an adult. *I am yet to have a customer say "wow, you look like a fourteen year-old." *The normal response is "You look pretty young, but by the way you talk i'm guesssing your 18, 19?" *And i polietely have to say "No, i'm only 14". *Theres normally some jaw-dropping expressions. lol. Most mowing is done after school and I normally try not to work weekends, but that normally never works. I do my mowing Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, take Friday night off, and do any landscaping that i wasn't able to put on my route during the week on Saturday.

But you have to market yourself as an adult, treat people like adults, take responsibility, and do quality work, and don't be the most expensive guy around.

Team Gopher: *Thanks. *This spring I will get a picture of me in front of everything (and my new truck!). *I just wanted to leave some feedback about this site; it's amazing! *All the free stuff and everything! *On my way to the Wisconsin Dells last weekend I read the "Guide to stop lowballing" *(yep, all like 100 pages of it!) and WOW, i am going back through with a highlighter to mark specific areas that I would like to review over and over again. *But updated pictures of the fleet, and myself will follow in early April and maybe I could even get some footage of me working or something.

In terms of marketing my business, I will be doing about 1k doorhangers, and an ad in a local advertising paper that is distributed (actually talked to the guy last night)

Jeffslawnservice: *Thanks!

Here is a few pictures of my first truck! *I bought it on New Year's Eve and love it!
