I’m passionate about small businesses and fanatical about good business practices. Unfortunately the two not always merge, that’s why I’m always elated when I find small business owners running their businesses with vision. This is the case of Joe Mohar and his eco-conscious land care business, Joe’s Land Care.
Joe started his business in January of 2007 following his passion to work with nature and make a difference in the environment. He knew about plants and had learned a lot from landscaping experts. He was committed to work for himself and to create a green business in the town he loves: Asheville.
“I love our bio region: the mountains, the bio diversity and the fact that I am surrounded by inspiring natural beauty.” Joe says talking about Asheville. “The open minded creative environment of this town makes it my home” Joe adds.
Joe was a smart businessman from the start. He learned how to manage and operate a small business PRIOR to opening his business, Joe’s Land Care, something many people fail to do. He enrolled in the FastTrac training program offered by Mountain Biz Works; and most importantly, he put into action what he learned.
So, what good business practices does Joe follow?
- He consistently advertises in Asheville publications
- He has a uniform message and brand
- He has a professional looking website
- He uses QuickBooks for estimates, invoicing and planning
- He has impeccable customer follow up and service
And, his work is true to his mission of “caring for the earth one yard at a time.” You can see the care and love he imbues in all of his projects large or small, by visiting his website http://www.joeslandcare.com/.
