Default Hi From NY

Hi There My husband and I started a Landscaping and Snowplow business recently.
My husband has been plowing for years and has done excavation and pavers.

Lucky to have friends in all aspects if the business to work off of each other.

We currently have 50 non-commercial snowplow accounts. 1 commercial.
we also have 20 lawns and did well with the fall clean up.

I am a Stay at home mom and he has a full time career as well.

We decided to expand the small business, as we have many contacts in our area and my husband is super handy and I am business savvy.

We are in the market for a billing program designed for landscape professionals.


Well glad to have found your forum and I am excited to begin exploring around here.
Thanks
Mare

Hi Mare,

Welcome to our forum!

What initially got you to decide to start your own business?

What kinds of things have you been doing to market your business?

Do you have any advice for other newer startups when it comes to actually making the jump and getting started. And looking for those first few customers?
