Providing phone and internet services isn’t that different from providing lawn care services. In fact, they’re “eerily similar,” says Aaron Clark, who has launched companies in both industries.

Aaron Clark bought Desert Foothills Landscape two years ago. The company provides design/build, maintenance and irrigation services in Cave Creek, Arizona, just north of Phoenix.

At the telecom company Clark started and ran for 11 years, technicians installed equipment for his patented technology, and then performed monthly maintenance.
