Sorry, forgot to put in how I got started. I started this company because I Have been struggling to find suitable work to take care of my family. I guess you could say my back is against the wall. A lady I know needed someone to cut her lawn and asked me to do it. When she went to pay me I asked her if I could "rent" her Mower. She allows me the use of her mower instead of paying me so I can take on other cutting jobs. I walk the neighborhoods daily to offer services. Nowhere to go but up

Welcome to our forum! That is a fantastic story!

Having 2 customers already really gives you a boost into the industry. What kinds of things are you doing now to attract more customers? Are you marketing to any of the neighbors of your current customer base?

Hi Jay. Sounds like you are on the right track. Very proactive. I started in 1996 and still at it. Definitely gotta have those biz cards cause its funny how they seem to make their way around. Best advice I could give you is that word of mouth will get you more business than any advertising. (although you still need to do both) So be sure to do a great job everytime.

I like that flyer! Very nice!

You should put together a video and getting it on youtube. That can help with funneling potential customers to your website.

I'd like to see it too!
