Default Introduction

My name is Bob from Ohio.

I was recently layed off from work as a computer spe******t and there are literally NO jobs, in fact employers have signs that say do not apply. So I decided to start a lawn care business. I have a truck, two 22" push mowers, gas weed eater, wheel barrel, rakes and shovels. Am I missing anything?

This is a great website and very educational!

Thanks,
Bob.

Hi Bob,

Welcome to our forum.

Good for you for getting started. You could also be offering customers computer services as well! Maybe something like geek squad?

Give us the low down on what you will be doing next.

I am very artistic so I made a few magnetic signs, business cards, and flyers. I do need a logo but I can't afford it right now. I will contact you as soon as I do.

Thanks,

I thought about that. I was also a contractor so I included home repair.

Did you see we have a few hundred free logo designs in the free templates section?

Maybe you coulduse one of those to get started.
