Business Questions/Interview - College Class

Hey everyone,

I would like to kindly ask someone to give me a few minutes of their time to help me with a college class assignment. I am supposed to interview someone from a career I want to get in to. I am already in the lawn care business but I want to stay in that business, so I believe that qualifies.

Basically I just need to ask you a few questions and get some short answers from you about basic business stuff. If anyone would be interested, reply and I will get the questions to you. I would really appreciate it.

FYI: There is less than ten questions and should take less than ten minutes. I just need one person to help. I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Raymond S.

Here are the questions. If you want to send your answers back in private message, I totally understand as some of this information you may not want to share here. Also, if there is any questions you don't want to answer, that is fine as well. Anyways, here are the questions:

Interviewee’s Full Name:

Have you had any previous jobs? If so, how did those jobs give you the skills necessary to run your lawn care business?

What do you like most about being in the lawn care business?

What is your business mostly focused on? Residential or commercial lawn care? Landscaping?

How long have you been in the lawn care business?

What is the toughest part of owning your own business, in your opinion?

If you could do anything in the world for a career, would you still choose lawn care? Why or why not?

What is the biggest issue, in your opinion, facing the lawn care industry?

What advice would you give to someone who wants to be successful in the lawn care business?

Thanks again for your help!

I know you are probably a busy man, but I just thought I would check and see if you forgot about this.

If Raymond S. is unable to do it, anyone else willing?

Not trying to be pushy, this assignment is due Tuesday this week so I am just trying to get it done. Thanks guys!
