I have just assembled a board of directors to guide my lawn care and landscaping company.All it cost me is taking care of their lawns to have years and years of wisdom at my fingertips.

While I'm sure they have a plethora of business knowledge, how much of it it transferable to (what I assume is a) small service based business.

Well i guess it has to do with how you see yourself are you in the lawn care business or property enhancement business one creates a job the other creates a business with many arms.

How do you find the time anyway?

Can you give us a brief rundown of their business experience? How many are on the board? I see value to this but there has to be some real thought put into it and have a meeting and be taken seriously by the participants. How often do you have meetings?

The board consist of a pastor,businessowner/councilmen,fellow LCO with a large company he sold.We meet once per quarter face to face for 30 minutes.Phone meetings once a month for 20 minutes.Met all of these people thru the auto detailing business i own also.

Sounds like you are really putting THEM to work.

it's Kind of like having a FRONT MAN,

I have been faced with a situwation like this.

other people have a multitude of contaics and are GREAT sellers.

also wonderfull for mentors. I had a friend in the business who was well lets say not so easy on the eyes, and just wasn't a people person he hired a FRONT MAN. salesman what ever ya want to call it.
he never seen most of his customers and in a few short years he was running a co with 17 employees.

I hope this is a GREAT move for you and let us know how it turns out
