    I may email these guys and see if they have a "division" in my neck of the woods. I would be willing to pay them $10 each for my drives. I'd make more than doing it myself.

    Talk about a hole in one! He profits because he has more work, you profit because you won't have too. I'm starting to see how this wealth redistribution thing works. I might have to really look hard in how I need to vote in 2 weeks!:D

    there is only one way i would do drives for $10
    1 i don't get out of the truck to shovel at all.
    2 I have 100 houses all on the same street.
    3 all houses are at biggest a 2 car drive in width and one car length.

    If i could meet all these requirements then i would for sure do drives for $10.
    but the chance of this happening is so slim i don't even want to try it.

    I think i might try to advertise for $20 per drive just driveway no walkway. Per push, see what happens. (hmmm maybe next year)

    could just be a leader to suck the customer in, then they get the profit another way.

    ya, I noticed that too. You said "team" how do u know this is more than one guy?
    I think its just one "smuck" with a truck:nod:
    Obviously not a real business. Needs a lesson in grammar.
    Not a very good ad. in my opinion.
