Hello everybody out there. My name is Jeff and I am from Chesapeake VA. Just started my business in august 2007 I know almost the end of the season, but thats okay I had good reason. I am a Federal FireFighter at Crazy Island, and when I wasn't at work it was me and my little girl. Well know she is growing up and she started pre-school this year. So all I was doing was just laying around the house being bored w/ myself. So I turned my down time into money time. I started w/all my stuff that I had at home which didn't last long my trimmer quit on my first job. My mower quit working on my third job. It was quite a start, but I made it through... I have on my arsennal a 44" Super Mini Z by Hustler, 210 Echo trimmer, 22" Hsquavarna push mower, and a 4 x 8 trailer. I have 6 residental and 2 commerical properties and I am a vendor for Kindercare. I have no employee's just me.

If kindercare there is anything like it is in Georgia, it's a public pre-K type daycare center. The caregivers are typically degree holders that adhere to a strict learning plan that helps children prepare for Kindergarten.

Does being a vendor for kindercare mean you service their property?
