    To expand on that last point because my writing is all over the fucking wall.

    1. I believe expressing ones emotions (in any manner, not necessarily openness) allows us to be like children, we feel, then we move on with whatever our drive is.
    2. There is nothing wrong with you being number one in your life.
    3. Right and wrong is subjective to each individual.

    Today's Execution:

    Everyday I get more and more fed up with being an employee. What I need right now is a site, I need a better way to reach people, I need to make it easier for them. Sorry for the lack of posts, I'm just busy and pissed (In a fiery drive way)

    Any thoughts, I know it's all over the place, thanks for keeping up!

    Have a lovely day Fastlaners.

    Cheers!

    You should be able to get a really simple (but effective) website up in less than a weekend using WordPress. It doesn't need to be too fancy, just real functional.

    Then hit up @Andy Black. Getting clients for businesses like your is his jam. Check out all his stuff if you haven't already (Adwords)

    This is a great suggestion. For someone non-technical who needs a great website quickly, Wix is brilliant.

    They have great templates, you'll be setup in no time!

    Great thread. I've been trying to help a friend out in scaling his landscaping business so I'm interested in seeing your progress on that front.

    Keep up the hustle!

    Hey, Nice Thread!

    I do love seeing the hustle in progress.

    Have you thought about putting a few of your goals in to the SMART format? (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time Bound). I found this great for my own plans. not sure if you have done it before, but it helps to have a second think over things, get some sort of priority, work at it, and reap the results. Its worth looking in to for an up and coming business, keeps me focused!

    I normally link it to a now, next and later type schedule of immediate priorities, things i need to do after that, and things coming up on the horizon. For example, you could have a few hard days of work, (which is now), then the website needs setting up over the weekend, (which is next), and buying the carpet cleaning gear is later. You just need to make sure you regularly update!

    Anyway, keep it up!

    Dan

    Today's Execution:

    Quit my job today. There's other ways to make money that don't require me to dedicate so much energy. It's sink or swim now, @jpanarra is assisting me in getting a website up. Mindset has shifted so much, fuck all this sitting around. I'm getting a direct mail ad going.

    Business is good, need more. I'm learning some carpentry skills from a family friend. I sound like I'm becoming a contractor lol.

    But let's keep the course.

    CURRENT REVENUE
    • Yards: 300$ Weekly​
    • Mulching 450$ (Varies)​
    • Misc: 100$ (Varies)​
    • Employees: 1​
    Have a lovely day Fastlaners.​

    Cheers!

    I've only caught about half of this thread, so this might have already been mentioned, but have you thought about doing this as a pseudo franchise operation? Here's what I'm thinking if I can articulate:
    • There will always be grass to be mowed
    • There will always be a fresh crop of 19 yr olds that need extra money
    • You don't want to be mowing grass every summer from here to eternity.
    Therefore:

    Create site and brand built on the good reputation you clearly have with your customers. Focus on customer acquisition, later add scheduling tool to website. Find and train young guys to mow as subcontractors and pay them by the lawn.

    Other ways to monetize in the future will be renting & storing equipment for your subs.

    EDIT: As always, good to see the incredible hustle.

    This is a great idea, check out 'Jim's Mowing' here in Australia, its a franchise of Mowing/Gutter Cleaning/Landscaping etc. Started as 1 part-time business, now there is nearly 4000 franchises in the Group (branched out to many industries; Cleaning, Fencing, Plumbing etc).
