How to start?
When you are done with your shopping, you need to proceed in an organized way so that you don’t end up in a disaster. Here are some basic steps that will help you:
Do a little research
Before going for lawn mowing, you need to do your homework. You need to know all the basic steps about lawn mowing, how to use lawn mowing equipment, the dos and don’ts of lawn mowing, etc. Ask your elders to show you how to operate the device and if you can’t find someone, then the Internet is your best friend.
Start with your own lawn
First of all, start with your own lawn. Imagine it is your practice area where you can try all sorts of stunts.
How to find clients?
You have all the equipment that you need, all the information about lawn mowing, and you are all set for the business. But there is just one problem; you don’t have clients…
When you think you have become a pro at this, start asking your neighbors if they need any help with lawn mowing or not. You are, surely, going to find a neighbor that badly needs a person who can trim all the wild grass of his lawn and create a heaven out of that jungle.
In the meanwhile, you can look for companies and organizations that are offering to pay for lawn mowing services. Companies are always looking for strong, fit teenagers who can mow their customers’ lawns.
How much to ask?
Be very particular about your pay rate. You don’t want to sound either like an amateur or like a stud. Go about different companies and get an idea of how they are willing to pay for lawn mowing.
Make sure your bid is lesser than these offers because you are not an expert in this field. Do not let them take someone else over you just because that someone else asked for a little less. However, don’t go too low. Just stay in between and you’ll earn hundreds of dollars in these vacations.
