  • Are you going to tackle this by yourself, with a buddy, or with a crew of employees?
  • Do you have someone slated to answer the phones, schedule lawn service appointments, handle complaints, order supplies, pick up materials, advertise for you, and manage the financial end of things, or are you doing this by yourself?

You may want to invest in a virtual assistant who handles your phone work from his or her own home, sign up for a voicemail service, or hire an accountant to handle payroll, inventory orders, and tax preparation.
