RE: Some more good news
Well as I was telling you we lost a few accounts during the renewal phase this year. But recently I was introduced to a lead. This lead had two properties which I bid on totaling over $12,000 in seasonal work. Today I followed up with the man and got the go ahead to begin work. This income far exceeds the accounts we lost and are the type of clients we have been trying to connect with.
I don't think I could have done it with out your help so thanks. The systems and ideas you are teaching to others are solid and will help them become more professional if implemented.

Tony, You're Helping A Lot Of People!
I really enjoyed your presentation in St. Paul Tuesday.
Your information regarding internet marketing was very motivational and informative. But I also appreciated your emphasis on hanging in there with old school direct mail. Good stuff. Keep it up. You're helping a lot of people.

Seminar Too Good To Leave Early
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I enjoyed your talk at Belgard U. in Kansas City the other day. I must admit I had planned on leaving early due to the drive I had ahead of me but after hearing a short part of your program I had to stay. You provided a lot of good information I plan on using with my company.

Motivational & Fresh Ideas for growth!
Thank you for providing me with your program “Growing Your Landscape, Irrigation, Tree Service or Snow Removal Company”, though I never buy these types of programs, I am happy to report I was very pleased at how much information was actually conveyed.
I find myself using it as a motivational tool, as well as a source of fresh ideas. Listening to the program often has allowed me to pick up new tips that were previously overlooked, and renews my outlook on marketing.
It has proven to be an invaluable source of information and ideas, it’s not everyday you get direct knowledge from someone who has owned and ran a multi-million dollar landscaping company. I look forward to picking up some of your other programs to help me increase my bottom line!”

How can you afford not to take this class?
