I got this email sent to me and I wanted to pass it along to everyone on the forum.

I am so happy to see that we do in fact motivate each other and inspire each other.

I wanted to share it with all of you and say thank you too!

I also, like alot of operators, lose my confidence and energy when I don't get paid. In other words, when I'm broke. Your website and words have kicked me in the ### a bit. Keep it up.
I am going to send an email to the person who wrote this to me and hope they can join in on the discussion.

What types of signs are you looking at when you see these companies blowing by you? What makes you think they are?

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Dan wrote me back and said

It seems with me, my business just drains all my $$ and it's time to put a business plan and systems in place. That in itself prevents me from venturing confidently in other directions.
Does anyone have any advice for him on this?
