Fake it Till you Make it.

My neighbor owns a lawn company and hes real big in the area
and when he found out i was doing this. Him, my dad, me, and my neighbor were looking at a tree figuring out how to take it down.

And he told my just fake it till you make it.

if someone asks if you do something
always say yes..my uncle told me this too..he owns a lawn care business down state.

If you cant do it..you can find someone else that can..and subcontract it out. You will always get a cut and they will always remember you are a reliable company.

Analyze everything, say what and do what is expected.

Find a gain in every choice or encounter that comes by.

Play the game.

Fake it Till you Make it.

Do you find that also applies to the image you project as well?

LMFAO - I read this and started cracking up, i was talking to Matt from Growing Green in Texas. I think my exact words were "Never act like something is outside of your capabilities, you have done everything they have asked, that is what GOOGLE is for"

HA! Funny stuff...

I was told this by my old boss i used to work for in the pizza shop. When i started i said "i cant do that" to about everything he threw at me, by the time i was done, i could DO ANYTHING. Even if i had no flipping idea what i was talking about or about to embark on. I use this in everyday use now.

When I was installing phone systems, I got the pleasure of training 2 FNG's. The first day I told them "1. Never let the customer know you don't know what you are doing and 2. Here is a phone list to call for help."
