I started my first lawn and landscape business in 1989. I did not want to get a summer job but I still wanted to make some money. Mowing lawns seemed like a good idea.
I had no idea what I was doing. I used my mom’s station wagon to haul around a homeowner Craftsman lawn mower, a bent-shaft trimmer and a broom. Not an unusual start in our industry.
But I kept going. I kept growing my business. I did not have any money given to me – not a dime. In the beginning, I was not advised by anyone. It was simply me and my desire to be a lawn and landscape entrepreneur.
Now, 28 years later, I am still here. I still own a business that is very successful and allows me the free time to work with other business owners. I love this industry and I love working with and helping the business owners of the industry realize their dreams of owning an organized, efficient, profitable company.
I am definitely an entrepreneur in every sense of the word. I have owned quite a few companies outside of our industry and I have been investing in real estate for almost 15 years. But I never left the industry because of the people and companies I get to work with.
I’ve been online in our industry since 1997. I was the owner and developer of both LawnSite and PlowSite until I sold them and managed them until 2013.
Today, I spend the majority of my time working with my coaching students and I have also published several books as well.
