A born entrepreneur, Joe Conrad hails from Cincinnati, Ohio, where

entrepreneur who has owned a number of businesses.
One of the things we can count on in life is that nothing runs smoothly forever. If that wasn’t true, a lot more cars from the 1940s or even earlier would still be on the roads, instead of being the rare sights that they are. As with all mechanical devices, eventually something breaks or wears out.
Snow & Ice
Come winter, Sammy Cahn’s classic, “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it
snow!” will play on every radio from coast to coast. If you’re in the
snow removal business, you might well be singing the same tune. For those in the landscape industry, snow usually means a few months of
unpaid vacation. During that time, those cold and wet winter months can
start to feel pretty dry.
There’s an old industrial short subject called “Spring Fever.” In it, a man’s wife won’t let him go out and play golf until he fixes a broken sofa spring. Frustrated, he yells: “I hope I never see another spring as long as I live!” Then, Coily the Spring Sprite suddenly appears.

According to ancient legend, the Norse God of Thunder, Thor, could shake the earth itself with his enchanted hammer.

Imagine three towering oak trees and the knee-high piles of leaves they left on the ground. Rather than spending countless hours raking and bagging, we tried to find shortcuts ways to make our lives easier.
The meaning of the saying “time is money” has never been better illustrated than by those in the landscape industry. The more green you mow in a day, the more green you’ll put in your pocket at the end of the day.

With the weather
starting to cool down, and the landscape season coming to a close in
many parts of the country, this could be a good time to begin thinking
of how you can generate additional revenue for your company. There are a
number of options available to you, but if you haven’t thought about
adding snow removal, this could be as good a time as any to begin.
