06: Lessons From the Landscape Business w/ Chip D. Thompson
Today’s guest is Chip D. Thompson the Host of the ‘Out of the Box Local’ podcast. Through the years he has built a portfolio of business experience that includes, landscaping, real estate, handyman and computer sales.
Today my focus is about getting more business for my clients. It is interesting to look back over my life and find what pieces have come together from each one of my experiences to give me the perspective I have today.
I enjoy the fact that now I work with businesses or B2B, in truth I’m working with the owners of those businesses. If you want to see me in my prime, meet me at the next networking event when surrounded by happy energetic business owners! – Chip D Thompson
