John’s value & skill as a business coach comes from having experienced & conquered the difficulties his clients are facing as business owners such as: the daily struggle of motivating employees, the arduous task of finding star employees, juggling a tight cash flow, competing on price, working 12hr days, working hard all year for little or no profit, and struggling to teach employees how to deliver consistent high quality service & work. Throughout his time as a business owner, John studied & learned from some of the worlds’ great entrepreneurs and today, has a proven and tested system for overcoming the many business problems encountered daily by business owners.

Since 2008, John has exclusively coached landscape contractors, and has worked closely with the Industry’s associations, suppliers & leaders. This close involvement with the industry, plus his experience as a business owner, makes John an obvious choice to help a landscape business identify & solve the issues that are stopping them from making the profit that they should be achieving.
