Talking I'm Baaaacccck !

Hello Hello
It the born again me . "Ducke" for some reason I can't get Ducke back so I am now know as "Cheeze Wiz" . No matter .
Well since I was last here oh about a year age a lot has changed. I tripled my size last year and had a fantastic season, that has gone over into my snow season doubled that this year as well. Looking at taking the big plunge this year and hiring a worker with sights on two for 2014. I have been on a spending spree in 2012 building up my inventory I bought a Ryan Aerator, 21" Toro , 48" Exmark a Ryan De-Thatcher couple of Spreaders Sthil Trimmer, Chainsaw and weed eater along with a load of had tools. I got hooked up with the Fed government and Veterans Affairs and I am now a preferred vendor> Its been crazy and getting crazier every day. Its January 11th and I sold a lawn package today I just find there is so little time to do so much in hence the reason I have been absent. between Facebook ,Twitter, Linkedin, Pincreast, Networking , Work and some sort of family life there's not a lot left over to socialize. But My New Years resolution is to do just that. Get some me time.

Graham

good to see you back as well as good job building things up for yourself and best of luck for continued success.

so many times in forums like these you don't see people for a while and then when they return it is to tell you about what a horrid run of luck they had and all the things that went wrong and it is nice to hear about someone having success and being too busy to enjoy themselves, good for you.

welcome back.

Welcome back Ducke!

You are an inspiration! For all those newer members, pulling their hair out trying to find some traction for growth, do you have any advice on how to push things forwards like you have?

Well thanks to Steve's hard work I am really back.
After many hours of toiling over his computer Steve was able to recover "Ducke" Thanks Steve

What does this mean and do for you? Is this something that is unique to Canada or do you feel the U.S. has something similar?

I do grounds keeping and snow removal for disabled veterans and the government pays me. I would think the US would have something similar.
