I have always had the entrepreneurial bone in my body and always followed the feeling by starting many different kinds of businesses of my own.
Most recently, I was the owner of a successful tree removal company in Nashville, TN called Nashville Tree Tacklers, which I sold to another guy in the area, but I just got plain tired of it. We were always booked which was wonderful, but it still felt like I was always working for someone else other than myself.
The good news is that I now totally work for myself and have the total freedom that I have always wanted.
With tree removal, I had to leave my home to go and perform my services for my customers, hire a lot of guys to work for me, buy a shit ton of tree servicing equipment, and a whole lot more.
Nowadays, I provide services to my customers at home through online marketing and helping businesses in the area with their online presence so they can bring in more customers, leads, and sales. It’s the coolest thing in the whole wide world!
I loved my tree removal company and didn’t want to sell it, but it just didn’t align with my dreams and goals to keep it. I’m so excited that I still get to do something very close to the job because I still get to work with my community, along with some of the other business owners in the area that I have been buddies with for years. I don’t know where else you are going to find something that worked out as well as that.
The even better part is that I am still pretty tight with the guy that bought my tree removal business from me, and he’s already expressed interest about me taking care of his online work for him. As someone coming straight from the industry, I know how competitive it is as well as how large the Nashville area is. The crazy thing is that it’s still growing, so there is so much potential.
I tell this story as the first post on my new blog so that everyone out there can see what happens when you believe that anything is possible, and when you develop enough courage to follow your passion. There are too many people out there these days that think they are stuck in a job they hate and that’s just not true.
If a guy like me can take on a plethora of different jobs in his life, including owning a large and healthy tree removal service, then anyone can do it.
All you have to do is just stay inspired and believe in yourself. Always. No matter what your inner voice or anyone else in your life tells you. In most instances, it’s all a lie anyhow.
