Are you cut out for a lawn care business?

Since 1967, when Lawn Doctor was founded, the company has continued to grow. A huge reason the business has been so successful is because of the people. We call our franchise owners Strategic Partners because we really are in this together. Having a good product is just part of the equation. When it comes to running a profitable lawn care business, the individuals involved are an equally valuable investment.

Joining the Lawn Doctor team is a chance to bring your dreams of a more flexible work schedule to fruition. It’s an opportunity to focus on achieving personal goals and it’s a reality within reach. In taking a step toward being your own boss, here are five character traits we’ve found to be beneficial for all of our Strategic Partners:

  1. Appreciation for community

Part of what makes a great Strategic Partner even greater is the ability and desire to get involved in the community. Be sure to take advantage of any events going on in your area. Get to know the people in your neighborhood, local store owners and other individuals you can connect with.

Networking is a powerful tool for any business, and Lawn Doctor is no exception. It is important to get out there – to have the company name be seen and heard. Your ability to educate consumers about the products and services we offer can have a significant impact on the rate, and to what extent, you can grow the business.

  1. Enjoy being outside

There are many reasons people choose to become involved with Lawn Doctor, but a common one is the ability to escape the dreaded cubicle. As a Strategic Partner, you have various ownership models to choose from – so being out in the field working with new customers and employees is optional.

You could choose to hire staff to handle the day-to-day operations while you focus on marketing. That being said, it never hurts for a customer to see the face of the person behind the business and besides, a lot of people have found that spending more time outside is really a breath of fresh air.

  1. Good work ethic

Since you will be your own boss, it will be up to you to hold the standards high. Self-motivated individuals have an impressive track record as Strategic Partners. They are driven by different personal goals but at the end of the day, they all have a sense of pride for what they do.

It’s important to keep in mind that you are helping the neighborhood to look good and keeping families safe from things like mosquitos and other potential diseases. It’s more than curb appeal; it’s about creating a higher quality of life. Lawn Doctor has always been committed to making sure the job gets done right and ensuring the customer is happy.

  1. A “people” person

At Lawn Doctor, we are all very supportive of one another. This is just as much a community as it is a business. The way that you interact with your customers and fellow Strategic Partners shouldn’t be overlooked. The conversations and collaboration that take place should be professional and genuine. Making and fostering connections matters in the lawn care business.

And then, there’s your family. Get ready to strengthen those bonds – because as a Lawn Doctor Strategic Partner, you’ll be spending a lot more quality time together. That’s what makes this lawn care franchise opportunity so amazing.

  1. Ability to set goals

One thing we hear time and time again from our Strategic Partners is how amazing it feels to finally experience their own definition of success. Whatever matters to you – financial security, more quality time to spend with the ones you love, the freedom that comes with being your own boss – you just need to have a goal in mind.

If you think getting into the lawn care franchise sounds like a great opportunity – it is. Interested in joining the Lawn Doctor team? Call 1.800.989.1903 today to learn more.
