Good for you and welcome to the business world. I bet it feels great to have that weight off your shoulders.

go get them, you are going to do just fine with your work attitude.

One suggestion for you is to read everything you can about business management and then find more to read.

I'm sure you will find it to be a huge relief to have him out of the picture as far as your business goes. It's hard enough scheduling for yourself, let alone someone else. Is he going to keep mowing on his own, or is he pretty much done with it? Did you keep all the clients?

all the clients are mine and i think hes done..i did tell him if i was looking to hire id call him first but hes on a short leash

and i had 3 jobs to catch up on from the incident yesterday and i already feel more relieved..

i can do things better on my own..and theres no hassle with 2 people..
the only thing i wish i didnt do was order the vinyl the day before firing him..cause thats 3 phone numbers ill never use..haha

ohhh i see. well, at least u didn't already get them on ur truck. i'm thinking about getting some for my truck, but i don't want people to question me about taxes and then end up with that problem. i can't for school to get out so i can advertise more and hopefully pick up a few more accounts. i get out of school in like 3 weeks.

ya i can't wait either, i no i can take on more accounts when im not in school, its just getting those accounts that's going to be the hard part. If worse comes to worse, i can always cut prices a bit i guess, as much as I hate to think about that. how many accounts do you feel you can take on by yourself?
