We get it. When we began Oriole Landscaping over 35 years ago, we were just kids looking for a way to pay for university. We borrowed money from our parents, worked out of garages and knocked on countless doors to get business.
Within four years, we increased our revenue five-fold and even hired a few of our friends. We did well enough for ourselves, and the majority of our learning came from our mistakes… mistakes that were completely avoidable.
Once we married and had mortgages and families to support, we realized we had to do more to pay the bills. We cautiously raised our prices to see what would happen… and people happily paid our price! For some reason, people who work in the service industry tend to undervalue their work, and we were no exception.
As sales grew into the millions, we centred our focus on efficiency to keep up the growing demand and subsequent complexity of our business. We standardized our operations, cut waste and implemented various systems to keep things running smoothly. We developed our leadership skills and expanded our knowledge so we could make better decisions in a fraction of the time.
