I'm curious. I operate a full time landscaping business with about 70 accounts. I put in more than 40 hrs a week. I carry one full time employee besides myself. I have two part timers who work with me on a very large account once a week. I also operate another unrelated business. I am retired from a law enforcement career. Even when I was called a law enforcement professional, I felt that there was nothing professional about it. I mean, I set out to always do the right thing and perform and complete my jobs as high quality as possible. I don't necessarily think this constitutes professionalism....moreso it is good business sense and gets you return business. I've seen a couple of people post on this site like they are doing people a favor....working for them and I think that is a horrible attitude to have. I've seen my share of fly by night operations that certainly are not professional. I'm usually called in to clean up their mess. I'm not knocking what we do but I kind of envision a Professional as someone in a suit who goes to boord meetings or follows the stocks diligently. Let's face it, I've seen people in that walk of life who I would hardly consider professional. Perhaps beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I guess I would like to see what most of you think about this.
