Best Way to find Clients/ Sub Work?

    What are some good ways to find clients or a good sub position? I'm in Lafayette, IN (North Central IN) and put a 7.5' straight blade on my truck early last winter when I found a good deal on one. I did a tiny apartment lot and 1 residential with a friend, but I'm looking to find a bit more work. A 1-2 hour route would be ideal (2-4 lots would be great), and I'm thinking working as a sub would be the better option because of PR, insurance, logistics etc.

    Is it possible to get hired as a sub with such a small route? I'm a college student too so that limits the schedule and is why I'm only looking for 1-2 solid hours.

    Edit: If it snows A LOT, class is cancelled, time is no longer an issue (class is optional anyway, right?;) ) With only a few hours committed, I'm not overextended and can still do a good job

    Which ever way you go,protect yourself,meaning get your own insurance to cover yourself. 1-2 hours is tough anyway you go. What happens if it keeps snowing? You just going to abandon everyone?

    With you grand,,,,,if you have limited availability, it might be hard. And again what if you have to goto class and its snowing and pple or your boss is calling you to plow. Just saying its a pita to hire someone in with that many restrictions
