If so, you've come to the right place!
I am here today to unleash an idea which to some may be a waste of time. To those who see some brightness at the end of the tunnel, I am asking that you please respond accordingly!
5 young adults across the United States building and expanding their landscape businesses, at or close to the same time. Using electrical rechargeable lawn mowers and other rechargeable electrical lawn equipment, they would maintain clients' properties. Being taught how to manage plants the 'right' (sustainable) way. In the perfect world, other homeowners and businesses would see the impact of young adults caring about change and change the way they do things as well. In all, this would be a great networking opportunity for everyone to grow their businesses together. (Asking questions, asking for help, giving tips to others, and discussing growth patterns).
If you are chosen to be a part of this networking opportunity...
You will be handed all the tool's necessary to build your business. I will personally meet with each and everyone of you. I will provide you with a rechargeable electric lawn mower and a rechargeable electric weed whacker. I will help you in any way that I can to help you get started (providing assistance in gathering clients; introducing the idea and your business at a community center for discussion; etc). I will then introduce you to all the other participants via a Skype group chat (that's right, you will not be meeting the other participants until you have operated your business for one full year). Imagine building a business with the help of others around the country, and not knowing who they are in real life? And then finally meeting them? How cool would that be? If this interests you, please read on.
Your gonna hand us everything? REALLY?
Here's the challenge:
Are you ready to own your own business?
Are you ready to work with other's (whom are only available via skype or over the phone) to become some of the first young adults to change the way things are done in the landscape maintenance industry?
Can you handle change?
Can you handle a pretty good amount of physical activity?
If you have answered yes to all of the questions, then you are ready!
Here's the OTHER challenge:
I am going to pick only five (odd numbers are the best) young adults to participate in this opportunity.
In order to decide who will be chosen to develop a business through this networking experience,
I am going to first ask for a brief 1-2 page essay answering the following question.
Has Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook.com helped you accomplish any positive goals in life? If not, please explain.
Has Mark Zuckerberg's accomplishments helped you to realize what your full potential truly is?
This opportunity is going to depend heavily on good 'social networking' skills. Most young adults today have a strong hand on these skills.
Do you have good networking skills in the 'real world'?
