Hello Everyone. My name is Robert and im 24 years old from Pensacola,Florida.

As of right now I only listed on craigslist and word of mouth. I have a couple of yards that are steadily asking me to come back but no contracts...kinda if they have the money, I have the time. I am looking into local "shoppers" and plan on ordering some door hanger and business cards. I dont have alot of inital cash available with x-mas and my recent mower purchase. Hopefully after the first I can really find a advertising idea.

I am sure if you keep getting the word out, you will find a growing customer base.
