    Every year I brain storm on ways to stay head of the game. After 13 years I still find myself learning. My grandfather told me he kept learning after being a Mason for 40 years. What keeps you guys ahead of your comp?<br>Travis AG&G Lawn Maintenance :eek:)

    Consistency, quality, and talking to your customers I think is what will keep you in the game longer than your competition. I have been fortunate to have picked up some lost business from my competitors recently and the main reason is we are always consistent on our quality. That word will spread, we don't do anything special other than talk with our customers when they want to talk, which is sometimes too often, but it's an aspect of the job that will keep you in good standings with them.<p>Homer
