Now, you may be thinking that you can pull it off with a unnamed box store hand held blower. Well, let me put it like this. How would you like to use a ten year old 21 inch push mower to mow an acre of well grown grass? Well, that is what using a cheap hand held blower is equal to. Don’t get me wrong, though. They have their purpose, even in the lawn care business. However, it is never a good idea to purchase a cheap box store blower. They are typically very unreliable and weak compared to a professional hand held.
Most people will have heard the saying “the grass is always greener on the other side” which, to break it down simply, means that everything always looks better than what we currently have.

A.) Starter Package: $2,000.00 Total investment. Investing at the starter level, you are eligible for commissions on every starter level package that you sell, but you would not be eligible for commissions on the larger packages.

Because they took a bigger leap of faith then you, they invested more capital than you and therefore deserve a higher return on investment. Your commission on this package is $1000.00, let’s say. Two sales and your product is paid for. Now your in profit. Now, at only 1 sale per week, that’s 50K per year. You invested $2,000.00 and profited 48K. I don’t care how you do the math, that’s an impressive ROI.
