Spring into Profits

Do You Want to
Keep More of What You Make,
Find More Hours in the Day, and
Increase Your Cash Balance?

From: Monica Mitchell Muir, Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and Job Cost Expert

Dear Landscapers:

Just around the corner, it will finally be getting warmer, new clients will start calling, and it will be time to get to work making the world look more beautiful. All at once, you know you'll need to get the new maintenance contracts out, hire new staff, do spring clean-ups, get estimates out for design projects and take care of customers. And, if you're like many landscapers, your cash balances could be running pretty low by the time spring comes around.

For over ten years now, I've worked with landscapers helping them understand the numbers in their businesses, showing them which customers are most profitable (and which ones aren't), sharing with them how to increase their cash balance even in the spring, and teaching them how to save time while growing their profits.

In the last few months, I've traveled to several landscaping conferences and met many of you in person. I've spoken on how to use QuickBooks for better business management, to increase profitability, to prevent costly mistakes, and to save time. Many of you have told me you want to learn more, go deeper, and understand the numbers behind your profits, revenues, and cash, so that you can keep more of what you make.

So I have designed a webinar series that is customized to the specific issues, challenges, and opportunities of landscapers this time of year - in the spring.

How would you like to:

  • Discover which customers, jobs, products, and services are the most and least profitable so you can make good decisions about the revenue you want coming in?
  • Learn a better way to track your cash balance at any time in the future?
  • Find out how to confidently assess and adjust profitability and pricing before sending those maintenance contracts out?
  • Learn several ways to increase your profits while working less?
  • Find out how to streamline your accounting work so that you can work on things you like to do better?
  • Learn lots of tips not covered in most courses or books that I learned from years of landscaping accounting experience?
  • Get your personal questions answered by an expert about a current customer or job that's going on now in your company?

If you said yes to any of the questions above, then you're in the right place to find out about my new webinar series especially for landscapers that will deliver all of the above benefits and more:
