Awesome idea!

I have retired so-to-speak from entertainment. But, i can still use plenty of the idea to get on well.

I sent a PM to you about our current choices for a name...there are others I am sure.

I truly appreciate your time and effort w/this and look anxiously for further dialog. TY Steve.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Before I forget. I have looked and possibly missed, but can a link be provided for chats about grass types, difference between mowers and how high or low to cut?

I need to learn how to NOT leave tire marks.

You are welcome.

I think the biggest problem with businesses in general is that they just don't stand out. People are afraid to stand out.

You might think this is crazy but it is true. No one wants to really push the edges of what they think is the norm. Therefore the results they get are average at best.

We each have unique interests and ideas. If we harness them and leverage them we give ourselves a chance to stand out. Standing out in business is good because it creates top of mind awareness of us. When a customer thinks of say lawn care, they could think of you.

Ask yourself, who do you think of first now in your area when it comes to lawn care? Anyone? Maybe someone? If anyone stands out, why do they stand out? How are you going to stand out?

Out of all of this, what is it you LOVE to do? Can you mix a couple of the things you LOVE doing into a business plan? If you can, and I think we all can if we try, then we really can be set!
