Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Welcome Gene,

First off, that logo is top notch. I bet it would look great on the side of your truck! Do you wanna give a plug to the artist who created it?

Secondly, you sound like you are doing a great job so far! What kinds of things were you doing to land the first 20 customers?

There is no doubt in my mind that you can do it.

Keep getting the word out about your business and I am sure you will grow.

Welcome to the forum

I Love your logo

It looks great. I'm sure it looks awesome on a truck

Hopefully I can get myself truck letters soon.. even if it's a magnet since i might be getting another truck
