Default Another new guy here.

Just wanted to say Hello to all and thanks for this sight. I just left a job i had been at 23 years last fall and now hope to get into the mowing buisiness with hopefully some success. I really hate the thoughts of finding another job working for someone else so i thought this would be a good opportunity to be my own boss. i will probably have many questions along the way so pleasebe patient with me.

I was a draftsman drawing blue prints for 23 years. and i worked part time at UPS the last 7 of those. My plans now if they work out are to continue the UPS part time and do the mowing.

Just keep getting the word out to everyone you know and meet that you are in business and more customers will come your way.
