Chuck and Gee-
Nothing bad about what I would post man... its all good... you guys are doing really well... nuff said... we do a different amount of work... like chuck said... we have nine full timers on staff and three trucks running... both are very very efficient. Just a little taste... I have a three man lawn crew that gets forty hours... they cut close to $9000.00 a week with only 3 commercial properties... Im not a braggard... just really excited for you guys... those are awesome numbers chuck!! All you guys should be proud of yourselves...

Thanks for givin us a little bit of what a day looks like for you. When your LCO was Chuck and my size, what got you over the top to become what yours is now. Was there a point when you realized that this is big/serious now?

ah man... im hard on myself... I still think its small potatoes... but I think thats kinda just my personality... If I could give you any advise... make sure the employees you hire are efficient. and your routes... we beat people into submission on our routes... the neighbors of our customers are so sick of seeing ads from us and yard signs, they either request to stop sending mailers, or they just submit and sign up... this makes our routes really tight. I have a 2000 Isuzu that I use every day. It was my primary work truck for four years. We cut, mulched, nursery trips.. the whole nine... 8 years later, we have 79,000 miles on it. Not bad... under 10000 miles a year, including snow removal. I do feel that I have alot to offer, and as Chuck knows, when I have time, I would sit down and talk to anyone who will listen...lol.... Email me at allaspects@mac.com sometime and we'll exchange numbers...

Well I've been goin' over some numbers & I figured out that by the end of the day tomorrow, this month I will have topped my sales figures from last august making this the best month I've had to date. & it's only april... This season looks promising. So I may not have my entire business running as my ideal model of efficiency yet but I must be doing something right!
