the next level for me would be to obtain 10 more repeat customers. i purchased business cards , talk to people i know and tell them about my side business. looking for houses up for sale in my area and contacting the Realtors. knocking on doors. just obtained signs for my trailer. offering a free cut to friends and coworkers for referrals. mostly what i find is , out of the people who would hire someone , already have someone to take care of their lawn. a couple of people said that they would use me when they need their lawn mowed , " when it is two feet high ", but yet to hear from any of them. but i only started doing all this about two weeks ago , and i know it will take time. so for now i will keep the nine to five and try to gradually build my business to the point where i can afford to quit my job and put every ounce of energy and time into my business.

Also make sure you market to the neighbors of your current customer base. This will help you keeps your routes tight while expanding the amount of customers you service.
