Great pictures there. Looking forward to the warm weather in Dayton, maybe we can go for a jog in the morning (if we figure out which hotel we are supposed to be in).
You should be thoroughly impressed with the great weather Dayton has to offer

Like so many before me I stumbled on this thread when I was bored the other day, I spend most of my time in the Heavy Equipment forum..needless to say boredom has not been a problem for the last 227 pages and roughly 7 hours..

Jarod, you sir are an inspiration. The work that your company turns out and the changes that I witnessed from 10 years of growth in the 7 hour period of reading this thread was astounding. Keep up the good work and carry on!

Ryan

I'll let that question keep you up all night long wondering the answer..

Here is my question... Would you rather buy landscape services from someone with the title "Director of Business Development" or "Salesman."

Above "Director", we have "Vice President of Business Development."

Appearance and delivery is EVERYTHING.

Jarod has this game beat by a longshot with what he does.

Sounds like a old spin to make something sound greater then it is. In the end the customer thinks they are special because the talked to someone HI UP in your company when in reality they met your salesman. If it works that's what matters, all customers are special as long as they are spending $ but IMO your salesman's title sounds misleading.

You know here's the interesting thing with our GROW division and I continue to learn everyday. 5 years ago I sat down with collegues that said to me, "you are too narrow minded with high end design/build. The market won't substantiate it. You're limiting yourself too much."

If I'm wrong with this GROW division in 5 years. I'll put $100 bill in your hand. Let's leave it at that.

but is your company large enough were people are going to think that title is worth something. or is the direcetor of biz development going to be working on a job one day as a laborer because that would pretty much blow it? i can see your point somewhat though.
