You do excellent work! What kinds of business concepts have you learned from working with your current employer that you feel will help you start your own business?

ive worked with 3 other companies. learned retaining walls, stone walls, pavers ( walks, patios). pretty much everything with landscapes. i would just need to get my pesticide license. i was going to work with TruGreen this year as a lawn maintance foreman, but it was too much in gas for me. i was spending 220 a week to travel. i wish i had taken pictures of the landscapes i put in. fully edged along the front of a 1 and half acre backyard. new paver walkway swept from the porch to the gate. 6 pallets of 3 differnt type pavers. flowers and bushes planted throughout, mulched ( 26 yrds). and installed sod between the rockwall and porch.

by myself. in 8 days.
