Here is a picture of our home show just to show you our set up.

I had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with getting in this show or getting anything set up. Bobby did it all!

I did work there a partial day on Sat and Sun (it was Th-Sun).

My GM (Bobby) is in the picture and is the person that is making it happen and making my life awesome!

We are looking foreword to our next shows!

I heard about that the day after the sale. 1.4 million for 70 acres.

That is insane!!!!!!

Ground around us is going from $3500-6500 an acre.




About 65% of my gross sales are from Lawn Plus, 20% are from the farm and Becks is about 15%.


I expect the lawncare to keep gaining as this is where most of the effort is being applied.
As for the farm it just depends on the year but probably peaked out due to looks of the future markets.
Becks has leveled off in the last year due to me not putting in as much time and effort that is really needed.

great thread! I lose interest after a page or two on lots of threads but this was a good read! Emyth keeps coming up and that will probably be the next book I read.

rcreech, with some of this newly freed up time, check out Dave Ramseys new book entre-leadership. I've read all his previous books and went to one of his total money make over live events and went to a entre leadership simulcast a couple months ago. Entreleadership is fantastic... check it out!
