Hi Grassmaster,

What is your reflection on running your lawn care business? What did you think of the experience? Are there any thoughts you could share with the newer start ups?

ive been in the landscape biz for almost 14+ years, sort of burn't out,
my best advice to the new guys would be, make sure your passionate about what your doing before you jump in to it, there can be alot of stress dealing with customers, there's a lot of responsibility in running a good money making lawn care biz to do it right,, put your customers first, do the best job always as you can, be honest, work hard and you can go far.

but make sure this is what you want to do with your life? ive come to a point in my life i now realize this type of work is not my calling, it became not fun or enjoyable, no way to live ones life, always do what you love and the success will come

good luck to the new guys coming in. research every thing you can and constantly learn new ways and methods to achieve good results.
set your self apart from the pack.

again, be passionate at what you do, and the rest will take care of it's self

That is very interesting!

What do you feel were some of the signs that it was getting old and you were getting burnt out?

What do you think you would enjoy more now?

Do you think this business can change over time to allow business owners to enjoy it over time or at a certain point it just is repetitive and thats what gets old?
