    To expand on that last point because my writing is all over the f*cking 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.
    (Thoughts?)​

    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, f*ck 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).

    Today's Execution:


    First of all, a shoutout to @jpanarra who's been the biggest help! Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

    It's been good as far as business goes for the past couple of days. I'm just at my wits end or at least that's how I feel at the moment.

    My mother's close relatives (cousins) the four out of her family residing in Mississippi, experienced a tragedy.

    A CO2 leak killed the mother and father during their sleep and damaged the little sister, the brother came home to that scene and found a neighbor and attempted to save them. My mother and I are also becoming increasingly distant, for the majority of my life she has raised me as a single parent and imparted a Christian value set onto me. I've recently rejected it in it's entirety and she and I stayed up all night arguing about it.

    And I don't want to seem like a selfish cunt, I want to comfort her but I would feel less of a man if I told her that I still believed.

    But I woke up today, excited, still going. Thank you all so much for the support.

    <3
    Have a lovely day Fastlaners.

    Cheers!

    Fastlane Brothers!

    Your support honest to God means more to me than anything.

    I've got 11 weekly cuts that crank out 400 a week in profits, I am also attending a community college for a associates in Business Admin and Computer Science.

    The mindset switch I've had over the past year is just outlandish and beautiful.

    Always moving ahead and I thank you all.

    More to come.

    Cheers- G​

    f*ck SEO

    After focusing for too long on building social media bullshit for my business

    I watered my bloodshot eyes and behold a heavenly angel came down in the name of PPC

    Within two days I gained 3 more customers

    For anyone that reads this that needs a little bootstrap startup.

    Fall approaches, a lot of old people need their gutters cleaned.

    Hell everyone needs them cleaned!

    I'm averaging a couple hundred a day, I won't slow it down though

    Too much fun!

    Cheers- G

    Moved out of my house, tried college for a semester, not doing it again.

    Have a well paying full-time job with perfect hours for working on my Fastlane, winter is here so I'm re-orienting my business for services that will blend with the weather.

    Congrats. What moment specifically caused you to quit college? Your FTM?

    Anything you can do in the winter? Snow clearing?
