    I was wondering if anyone had attended this work shop and if so did you think it was worth the money. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I kind of thought that if someone had been they would know what I was talking about.

    This is a lawn care specific seminar produced by Bill Phagen (Green industry consultants). I have benefitted from his articles in trade magazines and he used to have an association of some kind with Lawnsite.

    Has anyone been to the workshop or used his consulting services?

    If so please let me know what you thought.

    My bizz almost went under a few years ago and I attended one of Bills classes got my limited spray license and started using some of his procedures. I work a lot less hours for a lot more money. As a matter of fact I drove over to Daytona on Monday for the bizz booster bootcamp very educational goes over just about every aspect of the green industry. If you use just one of Bills ideas you will make your money back and then some. When I took the first class Bill looked familiar, turns out I used to work for him in the early 80's Had a very big company 40+ employees so yeah he knows his stuff and you can to.

    There is also a guy in Ohio, Marty Grunder! I saw him at a Lawn & Landscape Business seminar about 5 years ago. I get his newsletter and he has a boot camp every year but its always in Jan. (usually when my wife is having babies) and back east, so I have never been. I would be curious if anyone else from here is familiar with Marty!

    I have been to a couple of Marty's seminars at the GIE. He has some good marketing ideas, but nothing I really benefited from.
