“When I was 18-years-old, I was running a little lawn care company in the Philadelphia area when something rather unexpected happened,” says Barrett Ersek CEO of Holganix. “My high school sweetheart became pregnant with our first child.” Suddenly, Ersek’s toy lawn care company had to be transformed into a real business in order to support his family. “I was working 24/7 (no joke), telemarketing and dragging a hose while my pregnant wife managed the books.” While Ersek did reach his goal and built a thriving lawn care business, the reason he succeeded was because he had a painfully clear “WHY”: which was to support his family.
So you want to build your lawn care business? At the end of the day we can all set wonderful, inspiring goals with well thought out plans to achieve them…. But will we be successful? If you can figure out your “WHY” – that thing that lights a flame under you and will drive you night and day to reach your goal, you will be much more likely to achieve your goal.
