“Your guide to becoming a Landscape Company Owner was phenomenal! Truly there is no other guide that competes. I am not a landscaper by trade, nor have any sort of experience with the design and care of estates and beautiful lawns. I am a consultant, and have found myself fascinated with the landscaping services business. Since reading your guide I couldn’t think of anyone else I’d rather ask for advice in my future endeavors as a landscaping consultant.” – Robert Magana
As a single mother of four and with no education I was truly at my wits end on how to provide for my beautiful children. After reading the guide religiously, I studied it over and over. Two months later I decided to start my own business on a free lance basis and within a few months it has grown over 75%. Now I not only have a floral decorating subdivision but I now manage a successful lawn & landscaping firm.” – Leonora Soliz
