    Hello Again.....

    It's time for the 3rd Free Give Away. The Give Away will be $50 cash, a pair of work gloves (good ones), and a pair of hand pruners courtesy of LawnSite.com.

    As with give aways in the past, to be elligible, you must answer the following question. You can only answer the question once.

    If there was one person in the Green Industry you could meet, sit down with and share a meal, and ask whatever you want, who would it be and what would some of the questions be? This is a fictional question, so the person you choose can be living or deceased. But please, answer this question seriously.

    Thanks for all of your responses and Good Luck!

    I would like to sit down and ask some of these weasels advertising how to get companies cheap foreign labor using H1B visas what they think is going to happen when they can't fit any more newcomers into the country? Since only new arrivals work this cheaply, it means that it requires a never-ending supply of immigrant workers. And since our country is projected to have a population of 500 million by 2050, just how many people is too many? And finally, when we do finally have to cut off the spigot, how will we get the job done then?

    One person?
    It would be you,Sean.
    NO,i'm not sucking up.
    You have great power and potential in what you are doing here.
    Lawnsite is and can be a great motivating factor for change and innovation,It already is and has been.
    Questions?
    What is the future of the whole green industry,not just lawncare and landscaping?
    What tools are needed to achieve that change?
    How can lawnsite provide those tools?
    What can members do to provide for that change?
    What can lawnsite do for members to provide that change?
    Who needs to be involved?
    And yes, What does the industry need to do to change it's image and how do we provide for that?
    Just a few,but you get the gist of it.
    Thanks,
    David

    One person I would like to sit down with would be.


    The owner of this LCO company in my area.
    I have acually had the pleasure to meet one of the retired co-owners.

    I would like to ask him if he had a cance would he have went down a different carrer path?
    If he likes going out everyday busting his butt or sitting in the office all day.

    basically ask him to be a mentor....
    This company is not only the biggest around but does the best work EVEN BETTER THAN ME. I am in complete envy of the work the company does.
    Not only does he make alot of money(one of my customers is a good freind of his)but i would be extremely proud of myself for having a company that does such awsume work!

    Well at the risk of repeating what others have said, I would love to have been able to talk to Eric. Being new to this site it seems I've came in at the tail end of something good. I keep hearing a lot of things other have said about Eric, but it is still not the same as coming from, shall we say the horse's mouth. You know how some things seem to always just be in reach, but you just some how can't reach it. So it is here. It was here with Eric, just in reach, but now gone.What questions would I ask. It would be many. One thing is for sure though... the knowledge that was left with others here at LawnSite is flowing and getting better everyday..
