I was at University and wanted to quit my day job at McDonald's. I then thought about starting my own business and working for myself.
I thought about a number of different service based businesses but then opted for the lawn and landscaping trade. When i decided on that, while at McDonald's, i bought my first whipper snipper and my first blower, and fixed my Dad's 15 year old Honda up which he gave to me and started my business.
Business took off when i was at University, with a steady flow of work, then soon i decided to leave university and work for myself.
And then here we are today.
