Have you ever wondered if you can make real money with a lawn care business? A teenager proved the answer is a resounding yes. He earned $100,000 in his first year of business—and did it all by himself, too, managing hundreds of customers without any help from employees.
Lawn care business success isn’t guaranteed. Most landscaping businesses make $50,000 or less in their first year and many of them fail before they finish a second.
So how did a 19-year-old entrepreneur become so successful, so quickly? We find out in this episode of UpFlip, a 2-part interview with the founder of Legends Lawn Care Services. In part 1, he’ll talk about starting a lawn care business and standing out from the competition.
From building a reputation to avoiding common pitfalls, his advice could help you start your own landscaping business. Find out how his simple business model makes $500 to $6,000 a day doing what he loves.
One key to his success was his ability to grow his customer list. Starting from a base of 20 clients, he had 300 customers by the end of his first year. Getting this many clients was one challenge, but managing that workload alone took another set of skills. He’ll share his secrets for both.
