Im loving the sales marketing part of this industry BIG TIME

Guys show up in Dirty trucks, T shirts,Not at all,Late,Unexcited, I show up clean car,matching polo shirt,laptop,Excited for there business...Show up early takes so little to earn business amazing... Some will say we work for a living cry me a river so do I and everyone else Excuses is all they are
Just a clue see the customer as a $6000 customer instead of a $40 lawncare customer

If I showed up in a polo shirt and khakis I'd look worse after the first lawn than I do now showing up in shorts and a tshirt.
