If you could....

....do anything you wanted besides be in the lawn care and landscaping industry, what would it be?

Before some of you funny guys answer "astronaut" or "President of the United States", I am looking for serious answers.....or at least as serious as you can make them.

If could do it all again. I would do what I almost did in 1976.
I would have signed up for Air Force Rotc at BYU and become a pilot. I would be retiring this year (at 55).
However I really enjoy installing water features and taking care of peoples landscapes.

I'm 19, so I guess I can still decide. I would like to be an entrepreneur on pretty much anything. I'm an entrepreneur who just happens to own a lawncare company right now.

I wished I had went into the medical field, especially when I was offered the chance to skip the 11th and 12th grade and go to college
