  • OH MY GOODNESS

    You all are not going to believe the past 6 days. I am not sure what exactly has happened but my phone will not stop. I got the truck painted ( no pics available yet) last Sat. I walked and passed some flyers. I also contacted a few of my local real estate agencies. I picked up some properties that consist of 6 duplexes on three acers of land. I am doing the weekly maintence as well I talked them into landscaping. I wish I knew what exactly got me all the attention all of a sudden. I did go a few miles away from the mouth of the ex so I am sure that helped me.

    I had an agent at on e of the real eatate companies tell me of another area to "flyer" so I think I'll do that one this weekend.
    One good thing with all this flyering the kids sure were tired.

        The flyers were just simple and to the point. As handing them out I expressed the fact that I do fall clean up as well because I realized I did not put it on the flyers.

            This is so fantastic! You must be feeling totally excited about all this.

            Once you get pictures, you really should consider sending out a press release to the local papers about this.

            This is very interesting stuff and it's inspiring to readers!

            What is next now for your marketing? Where are you going to be taking this?

            Are you posting this on craigslist too?

              I guess I need to keep doing what I've done for the past week. I do want to put something in the newspaper. I have not heard from Chestin yet. Email but no phone call yet.

              I did post to craigslist as well as another yard sale type site in my area.

                No problem, we can put it together.

                What I am envisioning is you and your children posing similarly to the way you have previously posed. Have the new mowers in front too. Then we could come up with a unique hook for the title.

                The key to success? Just add Pink!

                Something like that.

                And then in the press release we could say something to the effect of a local Moseley Creek mom found herself in a tough situation. Recently going through a divorce and raising two children all while running her own business, Teresa was looking for a way to make all of this work.

                Her solution? She added a touch of pink!

                That's right. After much consideration and reflection, Teresa decided what she needed to do, to really pull herself out of a depressing situation was to make everything look happier. Make it look prettier. To Teresa, nothing looks better now than seeing her two children sitting atop of their new custom painted pink lawn mowers in front of her custom painted pink truck.

                Something like that to start with and then we can go a little deeper into the story.

                What's your view so far?

                          Well I had hardly no calls comming in then all in one weekend I did the truck, flyers and real estate companies. I was not driving "the big truck" as the kids call it, just my pick up. Gee should I go from maroon to pink with that too?

                            Then we could go on to say.


                            In 2005 Teresa started Moseley Creek Lawn Care with her husband as a way to reach for the American dream of owning their own business. A few short years later, Teresa's found herself in an abusive relationship where she knew her only option was to get out and find a new path.

                            Going it alone, she found the life of a single mom with a business to run, was a daunting challenge. If she was going to be successful and find happiness for her children and herself, this was challenge Teresa needed to conquer and she did just it by adding pink!

                            "If this business was going to work, it was going to need to stand out" Teresa said. I thought to myself, "what would really be different. What would make me stand out in an industry dominated by men and that's when it came to me. Paint everything pink!" That's when it happened!

                            Talking to one of her friends, still trying to catch her breath, Teresa said "You all are not going to believe the past 6 days. I am not sure what exactly has happened but my phone will not stop. I got the truck painted last Sat and I already picked up some properties that consist of 6 duplexes on three acres of land! I am doing the weekly maintenance, as well I talked them into landscaping. I wish I knew what exactly got me all the attention all of a sudden. It's got to be the pink truck!"

                            What an inspiring story! What an inspiring woman! When asked what advice she would offer other women who find themselves in an unhappy or abusive situation Teresa reflected and said "you need to look inside and ask yourself, what makes you happy. What puts a smile on your face. Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved things that were pink. Well that still holds true today." As she looks out her window and gazes upon her freshly painted pink truck, she nods her head affirmatively and says, "you gotta follow the path that makes you happy and your dreams will come true."

                            In this case, her path to happiness is paved in pink.

                            I think that would be awesome! Go with what works! This is your hook! This makes you stand out! It is working too!
