So real. so relevant!

I freaking loved this book. Plan on listening to it 5 more times, taking notes & following up any recommendations. I’ve been buying stuff, planning & prepping to leave my job in the spring to start my empire & this book confirmed some thoughts & actions I’ve had & taken. And, gave me a whole bunch of new ideas. It educated me. Some parts even made me laugh out loud. I highly recommend.

A Must Read (Listen) For Future Business Owners

I actually started a landscape business years ago, got frustrated and tried other careers which I hated. I'm now starting back up in landscaping again and have come to realize that while I have the technical skills down, I have to change the way I do things on the business end. Listening to Keith's YouTube videos (yes, I "listen" as I'm usually top busy working to also watch) has helped give me a better perspective on the things that I need to be, and always should have been, focusing on. Keith has an amazing story of what he has overcome in his life and his upbringing. He's a self made man with great integrity. I recommend that you not only buy his book but also check out his YouTube channel. His book is great, I highly recommend you also purchasing. For what little cost the audio book is, it's a no brainer, buy it!

Was a little skeptical about it..

I have been following him on YouTube for a little bit over 3 months now and I'm very impressed with Keith accomplishments. it's hard for me to relate with other people taking in consideration my background but I can sit here today and tell you guys no matter who you are, where you from or even your nationality somehow someway this book will related to you. this book is very informational and straight to the point.
Great book!

Motivating

A good and motivational book, I enjoyed listening to this at work. The book would benefit from some editing. A lot of the lessons of the book can be listened to for free on Keith's YouTube channel, but this is good if you're in an environment where you can't sit and watch YouTube.

Not for me.

What disappointed you about How to Start a Landscaping Business Right Now with No Startup Money?

I'm a firm believer in the idea that one who uses profanity, especially in a professional setting, does so because of his or her lack of vocabulary to get a particular point across in an intelligent manner. The first paragraph of this production was full of profanity, and it continued throughout the entire recording. Speaking of recording, I'm still trying to figure out what the word "mindnessness" (presumably "mindlessness") means. Also, the author/narrator wants to know how the owners of the landscaping companies that he used to work for got "skarted." I'm not sure how they got "skarted," but we may be able to figure out how they got started if we just ask. I only made it about 10 minutes into the recording and noticed these mistakes. It seemed as if it was recorded on a cell phone and editing was non-existent. I simply couldn't take anymore. I'm definitely getting refunded for this one.

Would you ever listen to anything by Keith Kalfas again?

I would not listen to anything by Keith Kalfas again.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Lack of professionalism. Too many unedited mistakes. Terrible voice inflection.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Start a Landscaping Business Right Now with No Startup Money?

I'm not sure what scenes I would cut, but I would start by simply editing. It seemed non-existent in this production.

Keith "Money Maker" Kalfas

Great narration. Highly recommended. I've been following him for years. Also check his YouTube channel out. Landscaping employee trap. Tons of great info and life experiences on there.
