Strategizing


Your June editorial on “What’s Your Strategy?” was excellent and right on point – I especially liked the goalie analogy.
My son was involved in a number of soccer shootouts over the years as a goalie and when he stood his ground, he most often successfully defended the shot. When he tried to anticipate, he was most often scored on.

I’m impressed with the Lawn & Landscape magazine Web site and enjoyed reading through your approachable and attention-grabbing articles.
In particular, I truly connected with your June My Turf letter “What’s Your Strategy?” about why it’s often better to remember what made your business great instead of diversifying in a panic. (Let’s hope for humanity’s sake that McCafe soon goes the way of the McPizza!)
The pundits of the past decade have been all too adamant about complacency being bad for business – it’s really too bad they don’t warn as often about the dangers of losing focus.

Avoid the Trap


Great commentary in July’s Lawn & Landscape My Turf “Avoid the Trap.” I think you hit the nail right on the head with the golf story.
Keep up the good work!
