TGC Academy – For Landscape Professionals

As a business owner, you know first hand how much work goes into building and maintaining a landscape. You have a behind the scenes look at the hard work, the organization and the planning that goes into doing your job right the first time.

But wait, there’s more!

When you’ve got the landscape looking just right, then there’s still the work of your business to manage…and sometimes, that is just the thing that puts you over the edge of overwhelm.

There are three critical steps to moving your business from what I call the “Struggle Model” which promises stress and overwhelm to the “Liberation Model” which promises ease and flow in your life.

 To get there you must learn and implement these three strategies: 

  • How to move from Hobby Mindset to Business Mindset
  • How to develop a clear set of Service Offerings
  • How to employ Quick Cash Conversion Tools

Contrary to some beliefs, freedom doesn't come from doing what ever you want in the moment.

Freedom comes from deciding what you want and then developing clearly defined practices in your business; systems, processes, and tools that you reach for on a daily basis which create structure and predictability.  

This is the path that will lead you to professional freedom!
