WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BUSINESS BOOK? My favorite book is “The E Myth Landscape Contractor” by Michael Gerber with Tony Bass. Tony Bass is another idol for me and was one of the first speakers I listened to back in 2010. He made me realize this industry is a lot more than just planting trees or caring for lawns. I began to understand that I had to


work hard and study and learn to be a leader. The truth is, being a leader doesn’t come as naturally to me as being a landscaper. But “The E Myth” taught me to work on my business and not so much in my business day in and day out.


WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU TO BE THE YOUNG ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR? The advice I would offer to young people is to push for their dreams and make good choices along the way. Do the right thing not just in business but for others and in all aspects of life. As you go after it, look for support. It’s hard to do this all on your own. You need to be prepared to accept support and our industry has great support— particularly from NALP. This is an industry made up of


business owners who are great at helping one another. I personally talk to one of my competitors every single day. I think that’s pretty unheard of in most industries.


IN FIVE YEARS, WHERE DO YOU SEE YOUR BUSINESS GOING? WHERE WILL YOU BE? I would like to see us meeting the goals that we set. Hopefully I will be more mature and running a better business that is more self-governing and operating with systems. We implement systems all of the time to try and get to that underway now. I always want to improve and can’t imagine ever reaching a point where I say, “We’re there.” There is always room for improvement and I think we’ll always be pushing to be better, even in five years, 10 years or further down the road.
