Default Grasswhoopins.com Anyone In Kc Mo?

Hey, I am getting enough clients, that im started to get my a$$ kicked because of the weather. I am all by myself, and I was wondering if anyone out there thought to their selves that they want more clients, but cant do it by theirselves. I would like to merge with someone, and my thoughts of going Nationwide IS going to happen. If anyone of you are from kansas city mo. Give me an email at GRASSWHOOPINS@gmail.com and we need to talk. I have serious plans, and am ready to take on another employee, as long as they have 26 or more clients. You need to look at my website first, and see if this is what you would go for. Once we get 100 houses, we become a 3 man team, and then we start more teams in different cities, and makeing money off of each team. I am very smart, not to be conceited, but if you want to make some real money, I need more help with someone who has all their equipment and ready to go. So If you are from Kansas City Mo and would like to talk to me about what I have in mind. Email me. Serious people only. I will make it big, and I want to take you with me... But I need you to get there. EMAIL ME!!!!!! Thank you,
Mike. GRASSWHOOPINS.com LOOK IT UP

First that's not an employee that's a partner if they have their own clients and they are working with you. And your exanding by "merging" with other companies in other towns? What is the reason they would "merge" with someone out of state? They are pretty much sharing their profits with you and not getting anything in return? You might want to explain what you are refering and maybe you will get some interest. Personally I am not going to merge with someone out of state and not reap any benefits from it and esp now have to split my profits. It's not like your going to take over for a day if I am ill or anything....

This is a very interesting post and I would like to know more your view on how another lawn care business owner would benefit from merging with you and what you actually mean by merging?

Why a client quota and not a revenue quota? Not all lawns (and none in my immediate area) can be maintained for $25 per week. And the start ups with only 15 or so clients at $45 per week why not partner with them.

Is franchising your business your ultimate goal, or are you wanting to become something more like Brickman Group. Does anyone else here deal with Brickman or similar companies already?

How do they handle their operations? Do you have any insight into that?

There are a lot of people who just started their own business, and call theirselves "Mike's lawn care" or whatever they want. I dont just charge $20 for every yard, there are yards in my packages that start at $20, but they all still get a bid. But.... Yes if that person had clients already, and they made a certain amount from each yard, we would discuss eachothers business, and become "Partners" to expand throughout the country. You are Liberty Landscaping, you and I would not be competing against eachother, because I dont do landscaping, but when someone asks me if I do, I tell them no, but I know someone who will do a great job, and mention your name. As you would mine, unless you mow too, then we dont.

Its more of the point, my cousins are starting in the phone book, and calling people like telemarketers, and asking them if they have a lawn service and mentioning our name before anyone hangs up, and then every 100 houses (clients) we get, we hire a 3 man team, and they do those clients. Yes our business, as well as every other lawn care is business is based upon weather, but you know the rest from there. When we start getting clients that are to far to drive to, we start hirings teams wherever the clients are. Hence Expanding, and finding people that want to make more money than they are, and not doing so much work, Hence Merging. They work for me!

Sounds like subcontracting to me.

From your point of view, what is the difference if you simply hired more staff versus merging with another already operating lawn care business?

Wouldn't you potentially make more money if you expanded and simply hired on more employees? Or no?
