Should I put a job on my resume if it technically wasn’t a real company.?

So basically I’m applying for a construction job and my only ever real work experience for a real employer like an llc that I filed taxes for and everything was healthcare work. But literally since I could move a mower I’ve been on my feet all day everyday every summer since like 6th grade mowing lawns and making money. And just the last few years I’ve been working for my neighbors company. He doesn’t have an llc or anything but I wanna put some sort of job reference that indicates I have no problem doing physical work. Should I put his company although he’s not technically an actual business, or should I say I was self employed?

    You were not self-employed so don't lie.  The employer won't hire you and he will know.  They aren't stupid.  Put down your unrelated healthcare work and prior to that, put miscellaneous labor jobs.

    I think you should list it.

    You can list the experience, but don't try a pass it off as a real company.
