By senoff.michael@gmail.com On November 3, 2008 No Comments

When Tony Bass started his landscaping business more than 20 years ago, he knew a lot about landscaping, but only a little about running a business. So after struggling the first five years, he decided to do some research to analyze where his business was going wrong and what he could do to make it right.

This is the story of how Tony turned his business around. You’ll also hear how he created two inventions along the way while also writing a book about how to obtain and retain superstar employees. And in this hour-long interview, you’ll hear his tips and tricks for hiring the best employees possible. Believe it or not, money is not always the biggest motivating factor!
