I do not recommend it. You introduce yourself and stick around the boards and you will learn a lot more than what you can learn from that course. It basically tells you how to set yourself up as a regional.

You can find out more about the industry from this forum by reading old posts, searching subjects and asking questions than you can from just about anywhere else for a lot less money.

The hard part about being a regional would be if you have a conscience and actually have any compassion towards other human beings. If you do you will have trouble sleeping at night knowing you have people working for you that are killing themselves to make less than minimum wage.

I believe the standard for most regionals in my area right now is to pay between $13 and $15 per cut for lawns and less than $20 for monthly maids. These are starvation wages.

There is one in my area that pays $6.66 per cut and demands you cut at least 15 yards per day. Another one pays $15 per cut and makes you sign a contract agreeing to cut 20 yards per day 7 days a week 365 days per year or face fines and back charges. He also fines you $250 if you quit without a 2 week written notice.

Currently it is not possible to pay a good rate because guys at our level are only making a subsistence living doing this. With that being the case how can a person take a cut of the take and expect to be able to pay a fair rate, especially when they are not getting a fair rate to start with.

My recommendation is to either pursue a different industry altogether or diversify your income streams and use P&P as only a part of what you do.

It is in Orange City, Florida to be precise. My backyard, literally. He pays $100 per day and provides you with a truck, trailer, mower, trimmer, edger, blower, etc.

The mower is a 36" walk behind with no sulky and you have to cut 15 yards per day. I was told by someone who worked for him that he will send you to Tampa sometimes for the day. So that means two hours driving to get to the first yard and three or four hours to get home after the last yard because of evening traffic.

I confronted him and told him what he was doing was illegal. He will no longer speak to me.

From what I understand he does mostly SG work.

Contact the Florida Department of Labor. I'm sure they would be very interested in this guy.
