One job was mowing the greens and fairways at Kirksville Country Club located in the frigid North Pole of Missouri. My other job was running the mowing division of Nurseryland, Inc. Well, it’s true, but we only had 13 lawns, and since I was a pro on the greens and fairways, I was pegged as the mowing guy, a team of just one person.
When I wasn’t mowing, I got to work with one of two small landscaping crews. That was fun. It was hard, but I loved it. Back then, I wondered, “Is there good money in this?” Little did I know I’d get a front row seat on helping a few landscapers design and doze their way to better profits.
