This may sound silly but if one looks around today with all the industrial parks and the American life stile you are going to find many people still have a need for this service. Back when I was a young man not very many people were earning four dollars an hour , But I did! I would push that mower so fast I'm not sure if superman could have keep pace with me. It was easy to start because dad did have a mower and gas was cheap about 19 cents per gallon. I did not have to be a rocket scientist. I just wanted to earn a few dollars to pay for my pigeons. I got started by knocking on doors. This got me a few jobs but I also had a paper route. I made some fliers and placed them into the newspapers I delivered . That along with word of mouth soon found me mowing about 9 lawns a week.
The key here was getting the word out.
Not needing much to get the job done.
The willingness to work.
I often wonder if I had pursued the mowing endeavor just how far it would have taken me?
