My neighbor who owned a lawn service encouraged me to put an ad in the business directory in the morning call, offering lawn services. Compared to the restaurant’s hours & pay I currently had, it did not take long to learn that I could earn more & work less, with only a few lawn accounts. Eventually, I phased out the restaurant job & focused on his lawn service, which eventually grew to twenty-five accounts.
After finishing My associates’ degree at the local community college, I would have an important decision to make, would I continue my education or focus on the lawn service. I decided to take my future in my own hands & decided to pursue my business, with the thought that I could always return to college, if I chose too.
I soon offered yard services, as well as, lawn services. On occasion I would get a request for tree work. Unlike the lawn service, the tree industry would need a substantial investment including: specialized equipment & highly trained personal. Eventually, I found someone with the training necessary to perform tree work & he began accepting tree jobs.
As I saw my requests for tree work increasing, I changed the primary focus of my business to tree work. In order for this change to become a reality, I took out loans to purchase the equipment needed & also placed an ad in the phone book to maximize the exposure of his ECO TREE SERVICE Business.
This was an exciting & scary time for me. I had huge financial obligations that I needed to address & crew members that relied on my expertise for their livelihood.
I extremely happy I made the choice. I now have a beautiful website to showcase my tree trimming, pruning, and all other types of tree service experience
