I've actually done a lot of $7 grass cuts......in 1975 when I was in second grade! Pretty sure I was getting hosed back then!

No way to make money at $7 unless you can get a $3 inspection to go with it.

When I got out of the business a couple of years ago, my 16 year old son went to a few of my close customers and said that he would cut the grass for the same $30.00 I charged and would do the snow removal for the $50-60.00 I charged.
He paid a 17 year old he knew that had a pickup truck $60.00 for what was usually 5 or 6 hours.
The damn kid was making pretty good money. Especially since he didn't need to invest in equipment since he used mine. lol

I really thought you were going to say that your son turned into a regional and paid the other kid $7 to cut the $30 lawns... lol!
