    Default Great to Return To Mowing Industry

    Have been away from Industry for about 12 years and have missed it muchly. Was originally with the old "Local Mowing" owner co-op and operated in Bendigo. Have long since moved to Qld and pursued other vocations. After selling my business ( not in groundcare industry ) I decided I don't want stress, don't want to deal with bureacracies, so have decided to return to the industry I enjoyed and received great satisfaction. Have set up a small operation mowing acreage properties on Sunshine Coast and look forward to the future.

    Welcome to the forum GAMS, sorry you seem to have been overlooked in all the hoo-ha created by the recent joining of an ex Jims. Hope your new business has gone well over the last 4 weeks since you posted. Look forward to seeing more of you around the boards.

    Sorry ADJ Mowing - not that I know of.

    Mind you, I'm having a few "reds" myself - hopefully won't be talking left handed braile as the night goes on.

    Thanks Garden Guy - I got fed up with the corporate world and running a business working seven days a week / 10 - 12 hours per day and for what. My 13 staff made more $ than I did and enjoyed holidays / days off / and the like. I remembered what it was like many years ago when I started in the mowing industry and decided on quality not quantity - sold my business and back in the fresh air. Cheers - GAMS

    Been there, done that, got the tee shirt - about 18 years ago. N0, never again. They don't fit into the profile of what I want to do. I am quite happy chugging away on my own.

    But thanks for the advice ( tongue in cheek ) Phil.

    in this industry i reckon you do it for lifestyle,healthy outdoors , more family time and good money.....I couldn't imagine working for the man nor could i earn as good a dollar but the important thing is you have control , sometimes you may feel out of control when flat out but its probably the one of the best jobs you could have ...thats my opinion
