Ha most women love the fact that you are an entrepreneur but hate putting up with all the extra stuff with it. I have had my fare share of business getting in the way of personal life, it's not for everyone but I love it and except it as a lifestyle rather than a job. Growing Green do you have a link I can view you're website at to get an idea of what you're approach was.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I like "learning" a little about businesses, and their employees - even if I know that much of it is BS that is done for marketing purposes.

Better for the viewer to read that "Jim loves the outdoors, and has two dogs he rescued from the shelter", than wondering if any of your employees have a criminal record.




If done properly, I think it can be beneficial.

I'm in the middle of creating a website right now and was wondering what you guys at the gopher forum thought of creating a bio page on my website.
I think it depends on the type of business you want to create and the marketing angle you want to use.

If you create a business that includes your name, you are probably looking to create a personal bond with the customer. You want to say your family name and reputation are displayed in every property you care for.

Or you can go with a more corporate look where you promote the logo and make it seem like this singular entity.

I think when you are getting started, the one thing you have over other businesses is the ability to be personal and that is an edge you need to maximize for as long as you can.
