        Heres a must read:

        Pricing For the green industry 2nd edition by Frank H. Ross
        Available only from our friends at the PLANET network
        they also have a ton of green industry books and certification programs.
        This book wont tell you to charge X for service.
        This book teaches you to look at your business as a whole and how to figure out direct and overhead costs and teaches you the formulas for adding a profit.

        My review of this book doesn't give the justice it deserves - thats why im a landscaper ;}
        Read it - study it, and learn

                          Rich dad poor dad is a great starter book, but I also recommend people look into his other books. You can make tons of money but if you don't learn how to "make your money work for you" you will never get out of the "rat race"

                          Rich people stay rich because they buy assets...these books will go into great detail just that and some other leasons that everyone should know.

                          CASHFLOW Quadrant "rich dads guide to financial freedom"

                          and

                          Own your Own Corporation. "Why the rich own their own companies and everyone else works for them.

                          also for the women out their " RICH WOMAN" By Kim Kiyosaki

                          If you look on ebay you can also find great deals on audio cds,. These are great to listen to when your in traffic.

                          I know it sounds like I'm promoting robert kiyosaki but his books have truly changes our lives

                            Which business lesson do you feel you were able to get out of Robert's book and apply?
