The business of business is business.

June 17, 2005

I went to visit my friend who runs a lawncare business, (green grass, no weeds) in PA, NJ, MD. Happy Lawn was a really great group of hard working people. I came away very impressed! Even though the business is completely different from my former online marketing business, I was struck by the huge number of similarities.

The challenges are all the same:

  • How do you plan for growth but keep overhead down?
  • How do you develop your people to support that growth?
  • How do you mange cash and finance it?
  • How do you deal with a difficult but vital vendor?
  • How come the printer doesn’t work?

The more businesses I visit, the more I come away feeling that they all face extremely similar challenges. The business of business is all pretty much the same, but that doesn’t mean it is easy.
