After several years of doing it part time finally decided to take the big leap of faith an go for it. Needless to say coming up on being in business full time for 1 1/2 years I truly have no regrets. Other than I wish I would have done it sooner.

What do you feel kept you from doing it sooner? I bet a lot of members here are sitting in that same boat wondering when they should make their move.

That's awesome.

I'm opening a lawn service with my best friend, I already have a commercial blower and commercial trimmer, but I need to get a commercial mower, but one that is wide enough to make it through fence posts, and I need to get trailer. My Dad works at a place that sells tractor and lawn mower parts, so I'll be getting a Toro Commercial Mower from his work at his 50% discount. We are going to be getting an enclosed trailer because of weather/theft protection.

That's a simple answer I wasn't willing to take the step until my equipment was paid for an I had a certain $ amount in my savings as a cushion.

How much do you feel a part time business owner should save before they try to go full time? 1 month of their full time job salary? 2 months? 6 ? Or something else?

I would strongly recommend having at least 6 months expenses put back before doing so. Plus at least $5000 in an emergency fund
