My school is about 6 miles away. I love it. Plus one of my plowing accounts is 1/10th mile away. I took some mid-upper accounting & business classes at UND and learned a fair amt, but there is always more to learn. Next year (after I'm done of course) they are creating a business class that focuses on lawn & landscape, greenhouse, retail, and wholesale business practices. I think I may tske it just for the heck of it and it never hurts to be able to learn from my teacher (that owns the high end install company) about biz practices, with accounting, bidding, etc. I know how to do it all already obviously but I would like to know how others go about it.
