Check out this article. Bob started his LCO as a part time side project to help pay his golfing expenses. Now he is expecting to make between $4 and $5 million dollars this year! Reading articles like this is great because you realize you can do this too!

There is nothing stopping you from creating that size company.

After reading the article, let me know if anything stands out or if you learned something from it.

Landscaper tends business, sees it grow - This spring's wet weather has created plenty of havoc for Franey's business, which he started as a sideline to his job with the old Wetterau Inc. He worked at night for the food distributor and played golf by day. When his wife complained about the cost of golf, he decided to get a few lawn-care jobs to support his hobby.

Within a short time, Franey was working nearly around the clock. Soon he had five employees doing lawns, and he decided he would turn lawn care into a full-time business.

"What we find ourselves doing is projects that other people can't do or don't want to do," he said. He expects sales of $4 million to $5 million this year.

"The rewards are tremendous: seeing a business grow and flourish, seeing a project come to life and improving the look of properties," he said.
