I can see them getting the attention of neighbors, but honestly, would you want your lawn being mowed by prom queens? *lol
I actually had a thought about this over the weekend and ALMOST posted about it. *My family was watching "Pirates of the Caribbean 2", and I thought 'Wouldn't it be funny to see a bunch of pirates doing lawn maintenance?' *I mean, it's an attention getter, and a wonderful gimmick, but then you have to think about a few things: *
- How professional would you actually look?
- How much would you have to spend on costuming?
- How comfortable are the costumes to work in?
- Would this be a passing fad? *If so, what would you do next?
I guess I'm just a little old fashioned when it comes down to the actual work. *I'm all for new and creative marketing ideas, but this is a little much. *lol
Now Tiger Time has a GOOD gimmick that people seem to LOVE. *But I don't look that good in a bikini!
Well, here is my view. Is it crazy? Yes. But crazy can gain a lot of attention.
I actually love your idea of the pirate themed lawn care! Why not?
I bet that if you or someone did that, they would most certainly get a lot of attention.
Maybe you could call yourself Lawn Pirates!
When you think about how much of a rebel you have to be to be crazy enough to start your own business, why is it that so many business owners immediately fall into a new set of laws that dictate to them, they must act in a certain way?
Why must a lawn care uniform wear green pants and a white shirt? Why must there be this urge to conform to what we think a lawn care business looks like?
When you look at what Lee did with Tiger Time Lawn Care and how he got international media attention, you can start seeing how it pays to be different.
So when you sit there and think about it, how much of not doing something like a Pirate Lawn Care is more because you feel others in the lawn care industry will make fun of it? What if it really set you apart? What if that was all you needed to break through?
When you are crazy and wild enough to start your own business, why stop the craziness there? Why not just go full throttle?
Why not make your truck look like a ship? Your trailer? Your mowers! Can you imagine the amazing wraps that could be made by Tony from AMW-Graphics?
Can you imagine how all the kids would beg their parents to get the Pirates to mow their lawn?
It does make you wonder, what stops of from being more creative and expanding our mind and doing what we at first think is crazy!
Here's to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.
If you could find a good theme, like tiger time, it would work, but I dunno about those girls in prom dresses.
I kinda feel bad for the girls in bikinis though, I wore shorts one day, hopeing to even out the awesome tan I'm getting...and when I used the trimmer...ouch!! Plus instead of the grass being stuck to my jeans, it was all stuck to my legs, blah!!!
I bring a towel to wipe it off, it's not so bad when the humidity is down and I'm not sweating...
I'd love to be able to wear shorts and have some tight fitting tank tops with my logo...whenever I get one, lol!! But I think I need a new trimmer. My dad took the guard off....so I think that's why so much dirt/grass/rocks hit me.
Anyone got a trimmer?? Working or not?? hahaha!!!!
