Landscape Design Studio Resources

small business Oct 05, 2018

Hey guys, David here!

Being a small business owner is one of the most rewarding things you can do. 

I spend a ton of time with other small business owners. Jumping from coffee shop to coffee shop, I love to share my experiences. I think I share because I know it helps my fellow man. The consulting industry tends to be a cottage industry, working diligently alone from our home-based studios yet continually interested in how others are figuring out their day.

I have found that surrounding myself with those who share their resources makes a big difference. Hearing about another's similar journey helps promote encouragement and a sense of success in my own.

That's why I originally decided to start sharing my own journey. I am not sure exactly how yet but I want to begin by providing my own take on what I have done so far in my own small business. I want to provide a roadmap to encourage others and provide hope that it is possible. Sure there will be many screw-ups along the way but I will learn from them and I intend to share them here on this blog. More than anything I want to provide a resource for other small business owners to learn from my mistakes and see that we all have something to share. 

Below is a small list of what I call Landscape Design Studio Resources. From computers to online training, the list is by no means complete but a great start nonetheless. As my business grows I will share more about what resources I have used and provide pieces of training but for now, this will have to do.
