Anyone make it to the show? We were supposed to go Thurs but the weather cancelled that
Hi JRS. landscaping, the show was great as always. Had questions and was able to receive professional information and not hear say as often is the case. I do find it amusing to hear that so many in the green trades do not attend the trade shows /lectures / workshops etc, and complain that they have a hard time making money or that the products they use don't do the work. I ask where are you, these events are for you to grow and your not their. Just this year i have been to the Maine Agricultural show and lectures / the Melna trade show and lectures / New England Grows trade show and lectures and the list goes on. I do hear the weather problem i have to be here, well how come you don't have a plan ( B ) if you break a leg or arm who's going to perform the work you have to get done, speaking for my self for the most part this down time is for education and vacationing, if i'm not here and it snows i have subs that take over and i'm as close as my cell phone -- the work gets done and the billing gets done, i'm running a business. Hope some Mainers just think about their situation and decide that they are in charge of their business and not the business is in charge them. Life is short. you should be in charge. dig419
I have no problem making money
The only way I'd miss work is if I was in traction
Anyone else ready for Spring?
Yes and no. I've long been ready for warmer weather and the summertime work but have some more scheduling and plans to iron out before I'm REALLY ready. Lol. Just got a call from a small local guy getting out and giving us his 18-20 accounts. No advertising this year - fast growth is tough to manage.
Fast growth is tough, hopefully we pick up 1 - 2 more commercial accounts year round and settle down this year!
I was ready before Nemo, now I just want to put the plows/sanders/pushers away and mow some grass
I've been I Florida all week .....running around chasing the lawn guys and checking out their setups....driving my wife nuts so ya....I'll have spring fever BAD when I get home. Been reading a lot on business management and leadership...... Have so much to learn!!
Were you up here for Nemo?
We all have things we can learn
Valley Crest takes care of the resort we're staying at. Lol
Yes....I was definitely there for that storm but not this past weekend one.....we 'll be back on sat.
