Roy Scott, a winner of the Savannah Chamber's Small Business Awards offers words of wisdom to those starting out.

What's your view of this?

'Follow your dreams, but have a business plan' (http://www.savannahnow.com/node/302238) - Leroy "Roy" Scott's L&P Enterprises is a lawn care business specializing in maintenance and sod installation, employing those who might not otherwise be able to find a job.

After serving their sentences and remaining drug-free, individuals who are housed in or released from Savannah transitional centers are hired by L&P, which helps them make the transition from incarceration to the work force.

L&P currently employs 25 full-time and four part-time workers.

The toughest part of being a small- business owner, Scott says, is finding and keeping good people who truly want a second chance in life.

The best part?

"You are your own boss," he said.

Scott's advice to small business owners just starting out?

"Organize a good business plan."
