This thread really illustrates one of the cool things about this business.
When I first started out, I had a great time working on an island, wearing cut-off shorts, a t-shirt, and driving an old land cruiser. Then the biggest question was, do I cut the yards today and go fishing tomorrow, or......yeah, I'll go fishing today and cut the yards tomorrow.
Now that I am older I have a little different perspective. I have also grown to really enjoy talking with other business owners and community leaders each week at Rotary. I have to dress a little nicer to be taken seriously, but fortunately landscape formal is a plaid shirt and khakis.
We are in such a relationship based business there is room for however each of us wants to do it. Some days when I am running late for a meeting and have 5 other things to get done, I sure do miss that old land cruiser.
