Thanks guys for the welcome. I have already learned alot from all the post on gopher forum and have seen where I have made some mistakes along the way.

This forum is awesome and just wish I found it a year ago.

Thanks and to quote Steve - Dream it- Build it- Gopher it.


To Steve
I had a lawncare business years and years ago and I got out of it and now I wish I had'nt- Steve got any ideas for a logo for Redneck Lawncare.

To Hedgemaster- No but that might be a good idea. I am getting my work truck lifted and plastering it with my company name.

again thanks Mike

What mistakes stand out? With that in mind, what advice would you give to the newer startups?

What got you to decide to get out and then later come back in? How is it different for you this time?

Quote:

Oh yes it is a great name and you could create some fantastic logos depending on which way you want to take it. You could be more playful with it or more serious, but I think it is a great name.
