Zach’s Lawncare owner Zach Cox shares details about starting his small business.

Chance kind acts have grown into a booming small business for 16-year-old Zach Cox, whose lawnmower business Zach’s Lawncare is steadily on the rise.

The Ohio native said “Make Money With Charles Payne” Wednesday that he started mowing the lawns of his elderly neighbors and family members when he was 10. Now his service has grown into a full-fledged small business.

“It feels amazing,” he said. “It feels like I’m actually getting to where I want to be.”

Cox said in the past two years alone, his business has grown from 15 feet to nearly 50 feet, plus other maintenance jobs like electricity washing. The teenager said he even had the opportunity to hire some of his friends as employees.

“Hire my friends – that’s even cooler,” he said. “To be able to go to school with them, be friends with them and then be their boss. It’s just cool to be so young and do that.”

The young entrepreneur said his plan was to continue growing his business instead of going to traditional college, which he thought was a “waste of money”.
