The enterprise value specialists at Ceibass work with lawn and landscape business owners throughout the country helping them enhance the value of their businesses, and then assisting them in the sale of their businesses. 

“A common problem we see with business owners is that they reach a level of success with their business and then have trouble ascending to the next level, and then to the next level of excellence,” said Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO. “What holds them back is their mindset. They need to transition their thinking away from what they need to do to fix things, into more a team mindset … do they have the right people, in the right seats on the bus helping them? And I don’t just mean employees, I mean the right colleagues, the right teachers, the right professionals, the right vendors, the right customers, the right support. Ultimately, they need to start thinking about their complete team, their networks of help. As an owner sets bigger and bigger goals for their company they will need better and better networks.”

The team at Ceibass went on to recommend an article in the January 2022 issue of Lawn and Landscape magazine, Words of Wilson, You Need a Network, by Robert Clinkenbeard, Managing Partner, Bruce Wilson & Company. “The article stresses the importance of having an effective, strategic and competitive group of people inside and outside your company to help you sustainably grow the business, to challenge your mindset. You can’t do it alone, you need people to help you … really skilled and talented people,” added Tom. “So make networking a top priority. Number one.
