Question New Guy

Hello there. I am new to this.

How do I cut the grass? Am I supposed to cut it until there is no more green showing?

I charge my clients $2.50 per visit, is this too much to be asking?

Thats way to much! You wont get any work at those prices. Try bartering for coffee, cookies, cake, anything with a c in it.

I've come pretty close to asking an Asian client if he could have his wife pay me with Asian food...

I'm not sure if that'd come off as racist though. I'd be down for weekly eggrolls.

It's not racist at all as long as you try to talk like them.
