For those of you who don't know, last summer I was given the opportunity to start a lawn care business. A church friend of mine had a handful of people he was mowing for, but eventually he wanted to move on. He took a new job in the middle of the summer, which meant he needed someone to dump his mowing customers on.
Turns out, I was that someone.
Last summer I was actually working at a youth camp (see this post), but when my friend offered to sell me his lawn mower and give me the list of people he mowed for, my dad encouraged me to start my own lawn care business. I purchased the mower for $200, a small trailer for $425, installed a hitch on my Escort, and I was good to go! I picked up about five lawns through my friend's contacts and was in business.
Of course, as I was still working at the youth camp, I couldn't devote a ton of time to growing my lawn business. This year I plan to try and expand my business as much as possible to where I can fill out my hours as a self-employed, entrepreneurial business owner! One problem, though: I need a name for my business.
I have never been good with names. The stories that I write often go unnamed for the duration of the writing stage, and then they get some kind of lame name that is about as . . . well, I don't know, really. Maybe bland, like white rice. Anyhow, I am not very good at creating a catchy name.
So now to get to the point of this post: I need your help! Yes, you! If You have any suggestions of what I should call my lawn care business, they would be very much appreciated! One thought I had was that it would be cool to use the "k" sound at the start of my name and use it in a catchy phrase with words like "clip" or "cut". Like "Kyle clips it" or something (though that may sound too much like a barber shop). This is not a general rule of thumb, only a suggestion. Shoot me with any idea that pops into your brain!
Just think of it, you could name my industrious business that is going to rock the booming town of Mossyrock, WA! What an awesome oppurtunity! (okay, come on; it's somewhat cool at least) :0)
