    I enjoy owning my company and growing my business. I am curious, what did you all do before deciding on this as a career goal?

    I worked for a plant nursery(retail+wholesale)for 7 years(Pike Nurseries), and seasonally working for various lco's. I then went to work for atlanta's top landscape company for two years(Post Properties). I finally got tired of making other people money. 3 years later here I am , I would not have it any other way!!!
