Ask a Business Mentor
“Ask a Business Mentor” is an interview-style video series that features established home service business owners, from a range of backgrounds, answering top questions from other home service pros or aspiring business owners. Topics range from general advice to specific content on how to overcome specific challenges that may be faced in the HVAC, lawn care, cleaning, plumbing, and other home service industries. Advice is easy to understand and actionable for new entrepreneurs and industry veterans alike, and comes directly from experts who don’t just talk the talk, but walk the walk.
The first episode, How to Get to 100+ Lawn Care Customers (Free & Low-Cost Marketing), features Stanley “Dirt Monkey” Genadek of Genadek Landscaping & Excavating, Paul Jamison of The Green Industry Podcast, and Chase Stetson of Mike’s Lawn Care Service LLC.
For home service businesses it’s important to have the right tools to get the job done the right way. These videos give a behind-the-scenes look at the tools and setups used by leaders in the industry. Experts talk about all things equipment, from their current equipment mix to tips, tricks, and recommendations for finding the right tools in various industries.
In one of the first episodes of “Shop Talk,” the owner of Impetus Plumbing and Heating, Terence Chan, provides a guided tour of his custom plumbing van and shop.
