If you had an extra $5,000 or $10,000 or $20,000.

What would you do with it?

Would you use it to help your business grow? If so, how?

I would be able to expand my business as where I want it.

I would be able to afford another truck (bigger so I can add a plow)

I would be able to afford a Zero turn mower for more productivity that can get me more customers in 1 day. I am getting tired of bouncing around on that tractor and going around circles, feels like i'm going no where

And I would be able to trade in that piece of junk trailer that I purchased when I started since I didn't know how crappy it was built in the first place, there's always a first time for anything.

I could possibly hire a helper that could make things faster/easier
