    I couldn't agree more. That's why I've been using him for a few years now.

    The full glossy is much better, but the content on the item is very important. Im having Bob design and print postcards for this spring, this will be my 3rd item of marketing media hes done. Fantastic work.

    Dlong, you'll have to let us know how the mulch only postcards go.

    I'm excited to get this going for the mulch only advertising. My plan with this is to build you enough customer base to be a local wholesaler as well . I want to buy a shop and if I have material on site and be a wholesaler and mulch supplier I can have the shop and mulch business all in one. I am dreaming here but you gotta start somewhere. Dreams sometime come true and I have been living a dream since I have been 15

    I've said it before and will always say it, "you have to think big, to make it big". There isnt a day that goes by that I dont think about having several crews of maint, installs, fert, irri, snow & I'm in the office at that point overseeing a multi million dollar company.

    Entrepreneurs have to think big to make it. I love it that there is nothing holding me back and no limits. (Besides customers and money) but I can get more customers and make more money.

    Exactly. The sky is truly the limit as an entrepreneur, that's why I love it so much. And starting & being young helps too :D

    21. Started at 19. I wish I got going earlier than I did! Starting at 16 would have been nicer but that's how it goes. This yr feels like it'll be my first true yr, year one I was slow to get marketing out (not until may) and last yr I made the mistake of trying with a partner and now former friend, that flopped after a month and a half but thankfully I have a decent amt of clients and my business grew 500% from yr 1 and will be shooting for another 400% roughly to put it into the 6 figure range this year. Ill be getting my EDDM postcards out once the snow is gone.
