    I have just assembled a board of directors to guide my lawn care and landscaping company.All it cost me is taking care of their lawns to have years and years of wisdom at my fingertips.

    While I'm sure they have a plethora of business knowledge, how much of it it transferable to (what I assume is a) small service based business.

    Well i guess it has to do with how you see yourself are you in the lawn care business or property enhancement business one creates a job the other creates a business with many arms.

    Is this the same group that helped you get into auto detailing and selling meat door to door? How do you find the time anyway?

    Can you give us a brief rundown of their business experience? How many are on the board? I see value to this but there has to be some real thought put into it and have a meeting and be taken seriously by the participants. How often do you have meetings?
