Happy Thanksgiving! Now is the time for landscapers to take a small break, but it is also the time to truly reflect on what to be thankful for this year. Here are 10 things that landscapers can be thankful for this year.
1. A supportive family
The number one thing landscapers should be thankful for is having a support family this year. Family comes in all shapes and sizes, including your landscaping team! For many, company team members are like family.
2. Repeat clients
Without clients, there would be no such thing as landscapers. Clients can make or break a business every year, so repeat clients are one of the best things to have in a landscaping business.
3. A thriving industry
The landscaping industry has remained strong and continues to grow.
4. Loyal employees
Finding the right employees for a business is a difficult task, but when a landscaper finds the right fit, it makes a huge difference. Loyal employees keep the heart of the business pumping.
5. A giving industry
The landscaping industry is full of folks who want to pay it forward. This is a wonderful time to think about ways to give back to the community.
6. Second chances
Landscapers live and breathe by second chances. Whether it is the ability to start a business for a second time or have a second chance with an employee, second chances typically bring a sigh of relief.
7. Being a boss
Every landscaper knows there are positives and negatives about being a boss. However, you still get to be a boss at the end of the day. You made it to the top, and you own your own business. That is something to be proud of and thankful for every day.
8. Reliable vendors
Having a reliable vendor is like having reliable employees. Without them, your business could fail. Reliable vendors will always be there for you, and will do whatever they can to help you run a successful business.
9. A new year
Being able to plan for 2024 is a great thing to be thankful for. The Green Industry is going strong!
10. A great job
Landscapers should be thankful for being a landscaper. You have one of the best jobs out there, and many absolutely love what they do. This quote reigns true, “If you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”
