Words of wisdom

 “Get involved with your local and national landscape associations. This is a tough business to go at it alone.”

“Think outside the box. This industry is pretty much run the way it has been for the last 30 years while things all around us are changing.”

“Surround yourself with great people. You’ll be amazed at what can happen.”

“Skiing is my vice. I’ve been fortunate to ski in South America. This past February, I was in Switzerland skiing with some friends. I’ve been helicopter skiing in British Columbia. 
It’s my one, kind of, crazy thing.”

“Hanging out with my family and going to their games is really important to me.”

“Exercise is really important to me. I think from a business perspective, it’s hard to be disciplined and carve that time out of your day, but the benefits are so important for clear thinking, sleeping and making better decisions.”
