    I have always loved working. but when time came to get my first car i bought a 2002 f350. and went 50/50 on a new boss straight blade. this allowed me to start off and these first driveways payed offmy truck payments and insurance for the whole year. not a bad deal. it also opened the doors to further expand my growing landscaping company outside my neighborhood.

    my first snow season i had 11 driveways

    i am now 17 years old. this is my second season have 7 fast track markets gas stations. 2 insurance buildings. one goverment office (3 parking lots for that building) and 15 hand picked driveways.

    2011-2012 Season . Wish Me Luck

    Where in the 315 are you?
    My question is where did you get the money to pay for these two new trucks and plows being only 17 years old, a high school drop out and only beginning your second year in business?
    Where did you learn how to bid jobs, run a business and do all this stuff?
    I'm not knocking it, it looks like your doing a great job, I'm just curious.

    I'm wondering how he signed contracts on those properties.
    I thought in order for a contract to be legal and valid the person signing has to be 18 or older.

    Dropping out of high school even for work isn't going to impress any one.

    Go get your GED!

    Give him a break. He's working and seems to be doing pretty well for himself.School isn't for everyone. Hard work and determination can get you farther then a piece of paper. He can get insurance it's just going to be sky high.

    I see where you are coming from. Some contacts only require a Drivers license number along with background plus all your company information. When I started my father covered my insurances and liabilities in his name until I could take it over. That's why I am wondering for is covering everything? His dad?

This winter Im working with about 10 costumers would like to have more but have to be able to get to school in the morning.
