3/19/07 - Eventful weekend and more

What a very eventful weekend. First of all, March Madness is under way and I've got all that updated. I'm in 2nd right now, but some of my picks for the next couple of rounds might hurt me really bad. We'll see how that works out. As far as competitions go, I'll updated everyone on the Biggest Loser thing at work. I'm in 3rd right now and if I lose 1, maybe 2 more pounds than the people in front of me, I should take over first. I've been bad this past week, but I'm motivated again and should lose 2 pounds I've gained by the end of the week.

My business, Grass Guys Lawn Care is coming right along. In the past week, I have purchased the door hangers and business cards (HUGE thanks to Dan for helping me with the design, he did a GREAT job). I also ordered some Polo shirts that I'm going to get monogrammed. I bought a paper cutter, colored paper, a new printer/copier/scanner and a few other things that I can't think of right now.

I've been using the new equipment the last couple of days to get used to it. I've cut my lawn three times in the last week and I'm already getting really good on the mower. I've still got some work to do on the edger and trimmer, but the blower is pretty straight forward and incredibly effective. I also mowed my neighbor's lawn and did a pretty good job on it.

I started passing out door hangers last night in my subdivision and got about 75 done in roughly 45 minutes. At that rate, it will take me an hour to do 100 so roughly 25 hours to pass out ALL of my door hangers. I've got my work cut out for me. Already though it seems to have paid off. I spoke directly with one home owner and he seemed very interested in letting me cut his grass. And then, just this morning, I got my first call back. An elderly lady said that she likes to cut her lawn sometimes because it lets her get some exerices but that she and her neighbor will both probably want to use my services several times during the summer. And just like, with only 75 door hangers, I have one part-time customer and two very strong leads that will hopefully materialize. With the weather like it is expected to be this week, I'm afraid I won't get much time to pass out more door hangers, but come this weekend, I've got some long hours to work.
Although not really exciting, in fact, just the opposite, our dishwasher broke so we have to get that fixed. Also, for some reason, my sprinkler system in the small garden at the front of thse house is not working quite right. And I found this out after I put about 3-4 inches of mulch over everything, figures.

Other than that, i can't think of anything exciting to talk about. I don't remember if I mentioned previously, but I was getting a few visitors to the website looking for P90x reviews. If those visitors are still reading, thanks for coming by. But because of that, I'd like to share my experience with everyone, so I'll be keeping the P90x on a new page you can view by clicking the menu item at the top of the page.
