Advisory Board

Many landscape companies fail to properly plan because…

Landscape Professionals

Richard Bare
Arbor-Nomics Turf
Norcross, Ga.

“…it’s just not in the genes of young entrepreneurs to stop and think through a plan for the future. It’s more fun and rewarding to wing it by the seat of your pants!”

Chris Joyce
Joyce Landscaping
Cape Cod, Mass.

…they are too overwhelmed working at their companies to set time aside to work on their companies.”

Adam Linnemann
Linnemann Lawn Care & Landscaping
Columbia, Ill.

“…they get sidetracked and caught up in the moment with putting out ‘fires.’ Delegation is the key to running a successful company and staying on track with a marketing plan and growth chart will help with the planning process.”

Industry Consultants

Kevin Kehoe
3PG Consulting
Laguna, Calif.

“…are too busy and they haven’t figured out how to use the plan as a living management tool.”

Phil Harwood
Pro-Motion Consulting
Farmington, Mich.

“…they don’t have a roadmap for planning.”

Frank Ross
3PG Consulting
Alpharetta, Ga.

“…they simply don’t know what to do.”

Jeffrey Scott
Jeffrey Scott Inc!
Trumbull, Conn.

“…lack guidance on how to make it hugely impactful!”

Jody Shilan
Upper Saddle River, N.J.

“…they don’t understand the value of it.”

Bruce Wilson
Wilson-Oyler Group
Scottsdale, Ariz.

“They plan, but lose it in the execution. They usually falter because they do not set milestones and assign accountability to team members, so it loses momentum and gradually dies. Proper planning requires discipline and accountability.”
