The Ideal Summer Job

Mowing in the summer is the best job for someone like me for a variety of reasons. The flexibility of the schedule is the main reason for this. I can choose when I mow or pick who I mow for. I can mow for a family an entire summer or just while they’re out of town. Having the option to choose who I work for allows me to never feel stuck or trapped in a situation I do not like. Being my own business also allows me to set the price I think is fair. I can negotiate the cost depending on how long it takes to mow or how big the yard is.
Working outside and getting exercise is also a big upside of mowing during the summer. After being stuck inside for a good amount of a Nebraska winter, it’s good to move around and be active. Getting paid to exercise is a great thing and I will take it every single time over just standing around.
Mowing is the best of both worlds when it comes to jobs. It is enjoyable to do and also pays very well. The addition of forming friendships with neighbors that I may not otherwise have been able to meet just makes this job even better. And for all of you aspiring entrepreneurs out there, mowing is a great way to start your own business and hit the ground running.
