Talking New Here!

Hello All.
My name is Randel and I own my own business...A Better Cut Lawn Care in Georgia. Been doing it for about 5 years. I have around 40 accounts.
Started off by getting a shopping center and from then on I started growing, thank the good lord. I have been married 4 years to a wonderful girl named Megan. She takes care of all the bookwork, speaks to customers regarding billing...and anything else I need her to do. I have two little girls, ages 2 1/2 and 4 months. Just a family man trying to make a good living to support them.
Glad to be here!

Hi Randel,

Welcome to our forum!

Usually most start with getting residential customers. How did you go about getting a commercial customer for your first customer and how do you feel that effected your growth compared to getting a residential customer first?

Do you feel you learned a lot from that experience?
