Bryan Clayton started his landscaping experience at a young age when in High School as a way of making extra cash. This was propelled by his father who told him to get off his butt, that he had a gig for him.
From there, Bryan started his own landscaping business, passed out flyers, and over 15 years grew it into one of the largest landscaping companies in Tennessee. He ended up selling it in 2013 to one of the biggest landscaping companies in the United States.
That business helped him apply much of his knowledge of building a company to his new venture.
He says Greenpal is like the “Uber” for lawn mowing. You just have to use the app to connect to someone who can mow your lawn. They started off really small and now have thousands of people using the app.
This company, however, was more of a tech-venture. It is very interesting to hear how he went through the learning curves to succeed, particularly since he said he was not a techy kind of guy.
Intriguing idea and interesting stats in regards to the landscaping industry.
What is really interesting about Bryan’s app is that for those who want to start a company, this is a way to do so through his app and not have to advertise. How amazing! All it takes is dedication and great customer service, and the Greenpal app helps small landscaping entrepreneurs build. Great story about a young lady with one lawnmower who just started with them.
And how do they get paid? Listen to find out!!
