"This week’s Podcast Review is about the GopherHaul Lawn Care Podcast

Description: GopherHaul is a show for lawn care operators, small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Comments: TeamGopher talk about how to get your lawn care business started and then once you are in busiensss how to use creative ideas to make your business stand out from the competition.

I know, it is about a Lawn Care business. However it is a good podcast, good sound quality, clever use of music but nothing fancy, just relevant content that is surprisingly to the point for almost any entrepreneur. In fact several of the shows are more about life success than Lawn Care.

Here is a sampling of some of the show titles:

- Create The Business You Want
- Take Baby Steps
- Believe In Yourself
- Pitfalls of Commercial Accounts

With more than 20 unique podcasts there is something for any business owner and the Lawn Care operator as well.

Pluses: Easy to listen to, good show notes (on some episodes), my favorite instant play and downloads too. Hosted at ODEO, Gopher Lawn Care also has YouTube videos on their business site, Gopher Graphics. RSS feeds and iTunes subscription are clearly labeled for the visitor.

Minuses: Sometimes starting with ODEO and then jumping to the parent site and other links it is easy to get lost and tough to find your way back to the Podcast itself. I guess clearer navigation would be helpful.

Recommendation: If you like success stories, like learning from other entrepreneurs or have a Lawn Care business then you should check out the GopherHaul Lawn Care Podcast."

"Have you ever checked YouTube for home business building videos? Granted there's a lot of junk, but there are also some gems. One that I like is GopherHaul. It's a show for lawn care operators and small business owners. Here's a sample episode with a good tutorial on how to make an effective lawn care business flyer."
