Lawn and Landscaping Season is Coming

I had a great opportunity recently to be a guest on an internet radio show that focuses on the green industry; one of our specialties. Lawncare and landscaping professionals work very hard to build and maintain their businesses. If you’re one of them I’m not telling you anything new.

We work with countless professionals in this industry and one part of their business that really puts a damper on growth is their accounts receivables.

On landscape Live talk Radio, I had a great chance to go over what a landscaping or lawncare professional can do to overcome some of these challenges in getting paid on time. I offer some […]

Making the Right Decisions

Prosperous decisions are logical not emotional. This simple sentence is probably hard to swallow for business owners and I completely understand why. It was your passion that cultivated an idea which grew into a blueprint that ultimately matured into your business. It was your drive, self-sacrifice and yes, your emotion that has built your company into the success it is today. After spending the past decade studying and working with high level decision makers, I can confidently say that the best decisions are made without emotion.

We don’t have to look very far to find examples of corporate greed (emotion) influencing high profile and brilliant leaders causing the demise of either them or their companies. Kenneth […]

Caught Being Good Again

My son (3 yrs. old) goes to swim school every Monday…well, most Mondays.  Lately it’s been a bit of a challenge to make it every Monday but we try our best.  Due to this inconsistency my son’s enthusiasm for swimming diminished.  It became hard to even get him in the water, let alone listen to the teacher’s instructions.

At swim school the design is to teach the kids in phases and when they have progressed enough they get bumped up to the next phase, which comes with a brand new teacher.  As with any teacher/student relationship there are certain people you connect really well with and those you don’t.  My son connected really well with his […]

Why should my business use a collection agency?

Businesses are sometimes hesitant to use a collection agency because of the less than favorable media attention our industry gets from time to time. However, if you work with a reputable collection agency that focuses on morals and ethics, there are clear benefits to having them by your side when trying to get paid.

Using a collection agency can preserve the relationship between business and customer. Getting help early in the process of collections will lay the groundwork for a faster resolution and will give you an improved chance of keeping your customer for the long term.

A reputable agency will not only take over the collection of accounts you give them but will also give you […]

New Year Business Goals

Aside from making New Year’s resolutions in your personal life, you should make a New Year’s resolution for your business to keep a better eye on your cash flow. You might think you have a handle on it, but there is always room for improvement.

Cash flow is the key to every successful business. Keeping track of your receivables is something you don’t want to let slip.
