Seen our blog lately?
That’s right, we don’t just write for print and digital monthly in L&L, but we also have an award-winning blog where we frequently post tidbits about the industry, funny videos and stuff that didn’t make it in the magazine, but is still worthy of a read. For instance, we got some insight on what it’s like to become a $1 million company (turn to pg. 94 to read more about making it to a million) from Dave Fairburn, president, and Andrew Pelky, vice president of NP Holdings, an outdoor property services company in New England.
We also do a weekly round-up of hidden Easter eggs we find around the web that pertain to the industry. So, hit it up bit.ly/lawnblog to get musings from editors Chuck Bowen, Heather Tunstall and Brian Horn. We promise, you’ll love it.
