Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Bruce,

Welcome to our forum!

I bet the area where you are is beautiful! Do you have any pictures you could share with us?

What got you interested in running your own lawn care business? Had you ever run a business before this one?

Welcome Bruce,

It is nice to see you moving forward and it sounds like you have a plan in place.

The Gopher forums are a plethora of information and if you can't find something just ask, there are a lot of helpful people on here.

Cheers,

Hey Richard,

Good use of the word plethora.

As soon as I saw that, I thought of the movie The Three Amigos. Did you ever see that movie? Then I did a quick search on it and can you believe I found a video clip where El Guapo asks if he has a plethora of pinatas?

The internet is amazing!
