I'd love to show you pick,but where not on speaking terms.I pushed snow for this company for a few years when they talked me into come run there landscape crews.Bad mistake.Three months later i reliazed they just needed a good mechanic to fix up all there equipment(me).When it all was fixed they didn't need me any more.Wasn't all bad thought.I learned ho not to run a business.

That parteners don't work.First day of mowing i had to seperate two of the owners in the driveway.The employee's never are right because two different boses giving different directions.How not to treat your employee's.This company every week had to fire somebody.Then they where on a natural high for a week.When week was up time to fire somebody again.I learnt how to treat employee by watching there mistakes.I learnt if you don't matinence your equipment it cost alot to fix when it finally breaks.By matinence i mean they ran there zero turns when front caster bearings went out until it eat thrue the wheel and half way thru front caster.But the best thing i learn't was advertising.They advertised like crazy and they stayed that busy because of it.Catchy ads on radio,news paper,crazy logo's on trailer.They had a free yard mowing if you where listening to the radio when they asked if you could tell them where there trailer was setting.This kind of advertising made them biggest mowers in town.But i don't think they understand takes employees to make a company.Most of there employees are from another county because they have been thru everybody in this county.

Those sound like great insights!

I wonder if they were making money with all that advertising and all that work, or not? Is it possible they weren't making enough and that was the cause of all the arguing amongst the partners or do you think it was something else?

I think it was beause partners in a business never agree.Thats why im strong minded on no partener ships for business.If you argue with someone long enough thats what happens.Evently the company will split.Thats life.Just think about your company and the way you do things.Then think if someone was there telling you to do it different all the time.
