NEVER let teenage boys get bored!
They must be kept occupied at ALL times or there will be fireworks.
The Boneheads put their heads together with Brian and came up with a "brilliant" business idea.
Brian - being a CEO, CFO, COO, President, thought the boys should come up with some flyers and go door-to-door soliciting business.
The Boneheads, products of the 2000's internet-age, decided the only way to be successful was to go viral!
I seriously heard Garrett say, "If we could get 50 bloggers...."
They slaved away for 2 days on their website, made flyers, made a business card, negotiated a wholesale price on mulch and bark with a landscaping firm, and bought new rakes, gloves and a wheelbarrow.
And thus Mulch Bros was born!
"Taking care of all your mulching needs since...........right now!" <- Tagline on their business cards.
Friday, they went door to - well one door- and secured a 3 day $1,200 job.
They have two other clients in line for mulching and tree removal.
Go ahead - go look at their website.
It's not completely finished,
but I think you'll like their biographies on the welcome page,
which they obviously took seriously
with lines like -
"I spent my time observing the various kinds of mulch that surrounded the playground. I felt mulch. I smelt mulch. I tasted mulch. I saw mulch. I even felt how mulch felt."
Smelt? Is smelt even a word? Besides smelting ore I mean.
And "I aspire to become Mulch Master of the Year."
Or how about this load of
Hey - at least they are out of the house!
