If you have not seen my website, which I have looked at most of yours, and granted their nice. Mine is easy, bold and straight to the point. My point im after is... I want more clients as well, but I wont be able to handle more by myself, so if I find someone who is wanting more as well, but cant, then we come together, and not go 50/50 because Im basically looking for someone to share the "dream" that I have, and eventually make him and I a rich man/lady. I guess I really dont know how to explain it "online" but if you had 26 clients, and you were getting your butt handed to you, and if I had 50 clients, and need help, I would want this guy with 26, now having 76 clients, and looking for 24 more equalling to 100 we hire our third person, and I give them $600 a week, and we continue to get more clients, and every 100 houses, they get $600 a week, and as more clients come in, the more money the very first team makes. Letting everyone else get raises as well. You have to get in my mind and see where im going with this. So my question is: Do you live in Kc Mo and have a few clients, and want to work with me, and get more and more clients, so we can start making the real money. Thanks guys. I hope you understand a little more...
isnt that a pyramid scheme? or am I understanding it wrong?

I'm not knocking your business plan at all so don't take it that way.
I sub out a bunch of lawns....along with mowing myself....and it's just that this last statement I have quoted above sounded like simple subcontracting but your other explanation does sound like a pyrimid (which is kind of how I read it also). And, the guy mowing definitely needs to not only 'get more for the job' but get paid enough to keep him happy and not make him grumble when he's mowing. Make your guy successful with enough money and you will make money also and have a reliable 'sub-contractor' or whatever kind of partner he is.

Sincerely, best of luck and I will be following this thread and your business plan out of curiosity.

Grass Whoopings
I am by far not a big company I do this one day sometimes two days a week. I work full time. Yes I to heard PYRAMID SCHEME Shouting in my ear while reading your one post. I understand where you are coming from. The one huge downfall I see in your plan is when you charge say 35 a lawn a wk. That's 140 a week. Yea it's good money for one guy cutting a lawn and maybe still decent after paying a helper and expenses but then factoring in a percentage a cut to the "parent company" (not sure what you would be called so I am going with that) and now his 35 dollar a cut is what 30 say your taking 10-15% a cut. Then he factors in his overhead which honestly all he is looking at is his profit. He might make 5-10 a cut off that 35 with you taking 10-15%. You see if you take more at that point it's not fesible for him to even bother taking "your work" he would get from the "parent company". Who's to say he doesn't get Ms Smith to sign directly with Mike's Lawn Service next year and eliminate you completely. He's the one with direct customer contact they would see him every cut anyway. I understand where your coming from but unless your there cutting with him and they see you every time or often Mike's Lawn Service will try and eliminate you totally. That's why taking a fee from them off the bat "selling him the account" would be wiser. In your first posts you were seeking anyone in your area or out of state companies looking to "merge" or whatever you wanna call it. Everyone loves money but personally I wouldn't do it this way.

It seems like it would be difficult to pull it all together. I am sure it is possible, but the difficulty level would be high.

I'd like to hear more updates too.

Over three years later, I wonder if this plan worked out.

It sounds like this guy copied thing I had said on other sites
And tried to run a big show. Wish I had seen
This then, it took me years to work out the details to do what he was trying to copy.
I would have loved to shook his hand if it had worked out I bet he would be a wreck by now had it worked.

It took me 5 years to learn how to get out past my surrounding counties...
His 30 mile plan, I had grown to cover 75 counties or so when I took o county that was 65 miles from a supporting county and ...it failed in 3 months,
I had no way to help that crew out, they grew and it rained and well we picked up equipment by fall!!
It is truely a simple system but it takes guts to work it out.
