Default Sub-Contracting snow removal

I need help deciding weather or not it is worth it for me to sub-contract out to someone for snow removal. Because I can't drive (I'm 14) people want snow removal and mowing all together so I want to know if this is worth it or not?

Leave it alone buddy! You will get taken advantage of, because yes you are only 14. Sub-contracting is a risk all by itself, let alone if you can't physically get to a job because you don't have equipment or license to do so!

Your time will come, just Hurry up & Wait!

Give us some more information on this. How are you currently servicing those properties with lawn care?

Is there a customer base within your area that you could reach and perform snow removing services for?

Also, what equipment would you be using to remove the snow?
