Hi everyone,

 

 I would just like to extend a huge thank you to Landscspe juice and everyone who posts on this forum.

 I handed my notice in at my current employer 5 months ago, after making the decision to return to horticulture as a self employed gardener. Since then I’ve had a thousand questions, all of which have been answered on these pages, finances, pricing, tools, vans, racking, clothing, invoicing, flyers and the list goes on.

 The 5 months is nearly up and I feel like I’m going into this with unprecedented levels of preparation, the first month in the diary is almost full and I’m busy working hard on the rest of the year.

 Thanks very much guys, this is a friendly and open community and I’m glad it exists.

 I will absolutely be supporting LJN by becoming a paying member but would anyone be able to briefly outline the benefits of doing so? 

 All the best 

 Gaz

    The practical benefits are detailed here :  https://landscapejuicenetwork.com/page/go-premium

    The business benefits are what you make of them : The BOG provides an environment to discuss issues, concerns and worries away from the public. Specific financial/business/employment concerns get asked and answered.

    The social benefits allow personal business relationships to be established, allowing experience, documents etc to be shared both ways.

    There’s many a testament on LJN from members stating how much It’s helped them stabilise and/grow business and get out of ‘dark’ times.

    It’s a way of supporting the Forum to ensure it continues to grow and provides the platform that doesn’t exiust elsewhere.  Think of it as a way of giving back ..... it is what you make of it and how you want to use it.

    I’m I biased ? Yes. I’ve seen what’s it’s done for our industry (for me, my business and colleagues) in the ~ 10 years I’ve been involved.

    Lastly, you couldn’t buy a weekly Sunday newspaper for less than Pro membership..........

    p.s. For those starting up or wanting to grow I’d say some members miss vital opportunities to promote themselves by not leveraging the SEO, not linking Social Media accounts into their profiles, not leveraging their business names etc....

    Just saying..... :)
