    If anyone is interested, http://www.pagreenexpo.com/

    Yeah, that's right I'll be speaking, er stumbling, about the importance of soil organic matter.

    Don't expect a professional speaker. Although I did take the Dale Carnagie Course. http://www.dalecarnegie.com/
    Great for personal developement.

    Please come if you are in the area.

    I wish we would get stuff like that down this way...

    Maybe I will put one together myself when I get the business running on its own.

    Like that will ever happen.

    Yo Deep Green,

    That's exactly what I did even before I got my business off the ground. Find a local watershed association and let them know you are interested in organizing a seminar on reducing pesticide & fertilizer usage in residential lawn care.

    If you are serious & would like some guidance, contact me.
    But only if you are committed to following through.

    Hey Barry, I am serious but I am not in the position to tackle that right now. Tree would be better, I just want to see something in the south. I will travel to FL if I have to. Once I get things under control here then we can talk.

    Like tree I would first like to get some local projects in the community going first. Then work on the larger things. I am trying, with the help of tree, to take things slow and not bite off more than I can chew while my mind races with ideas such as that. Everything from pool parties to community gardens, to adopting roads to clean, to helping treat city landmarks, I get about 100 new ideas a day. My wife was getting on to me tonight saying all I think about is business stuff.

    I'm in,

    She still sees it as a business. A business that is not paying me near what I should be making with the amount of work put into it. She doesn't quite get the whole starting a business thing either. The nice thing is I have the FD we live off of and am not completely dependant on the business. I just don't see how people do that. That would drive me nuts.
