555-1236 etc...

i always got awesome response in the mtg world.
and cant wait to put something together for the landscaping world!!!

As far i the skills i bring over from the mortgage world...

im not afraid of rejection.
i can knock doors (kirby vaccuums 2.5 yrs)
im a great people person
im not afraid to charge for my service
i have a lot of sales knowledge and training.
i love to market
im very familiar with direct mail(20,000) pieces per month
lead capture websites
auto responders
great follow up skills
good networker

i had 30 employees *3 offices and licensed in all 50 states
i can handle crazy stress and i am awesome with customer service. im just looking for something that will run itself after i build it up!

the mtg world has huge turnover and show much up and down in the market...

youll also depend on so many other people....
real estate agents

anyone of them can mess your deal up!!

very disappointing after working weeks on a loan.

well im rambling now, but i hope that answered your questions.

p.s. all successful businesses have the same basic essentials or business model.

i just hope to take ri by storm with my landscaping company and turn it into something viral!!!

I would actually like to use "got grass?"
and "your grass is my business" slogans

i want to be totally different than all the other companies around here...

thats what made my mtg company take off so fast.

im not afraid to be different and spend money to make money!
Looks like to me you have great potential. If your going to do hardscapes and other landscaping adventures then the name RI landscape is great.
However; if you do not plan to get into the landscaping part of the business then I would consider a different name.
Money can be made depending on how you approach your business. I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination but I am just crazy enough to try different ideas.
Make a niche for yourself. Get those around you talking. Nothing can be better. That is the approach I took and now my phone never stops until I turn it off.

You have some good ideas but you have to be different.
