    Im 18 and have been working on starting a landscaping buisness since the fall. I now have a truck trailer and z turn mower and am going to get a plow in the summer so Im ready for accounts. Anyway would you recommend the book? It sounds great from the description but then every commercial does...

    Sean Adams has a good product, I have read many of his letters and discussions and if you are serious about having a business then go for it. I think it will pay for itself

    You can obtain MULTIPLE times the information off of Lawnsite than you ca from any book. Not only that, but you get different perspectives, from different variations that better suit YOUR business model. you are able to ask custom questions at times when YOU need them, and have reached different stages when conditions change. For instance, there are different methods and orders of operations for different sizes of lco's, and there is different designation of cutting power for different conditions with varying factors such as exactly what equipment/per labor you have, and what sort of cutting power you are running. There is no cookie cutter formula.

    What works for one person, doesn't necessarily mean it will work for another.

    We give out advice for free, and you may even get responses closer to your market.

    Seems like Sean ran a very successful business, but it was years ago and things aren't the same anymore.

    Just my $.02
