Bryan Clayton, CEO of GreenPal, the Online Marketplace Connecting Homeowners with Local Lawn Care Professionals, Interviewed on the Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast

Published

on

Bryan Clayton discusses his approach to building a business that has been called the “Uber for lawn care” by Entrepreneur magazine and has over 200,000 active users completing thousands of transactions per day.

During the interview, Bryan discusses the extraordinary value proposition he provides clients. They have goals, they may have never run a business, but they need to build up a client base and slowly take care of customers and expand. The app is designed with little pop-ups and little nudges and notifications. Our job is to be there as a little bit of an accountability layer and a little bit of a “coach in your pocket” to get to the next level. The goal may be to get 50 or 100 customers and then hire their first employee.

 

 

Bryan explained that “GreenPal enables the homeowner or a renter to hire a lawn mowing service in a matter of minutes. Normally you would have to call these people and figure out their schedule, prices. You would have to leave voicemails or emails. Instead, GreenPal enables you to get quotes quickly, read reviews, and hire a specialist as simple as ordering an Uber. And after the work is done, you will get a picture of the completed lawn. If the result satisfies you, you can hire that person for the rest of the lawn mowing season. So, it’s a great way for homeowners to save time and money. In turn, service providers use the platform to operate their business and grow it!”

Premier Travel Founder Anne Kulhanek Reveals How To Plan A Bucket List Vacation On Influencers Radio

Published

on

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Anne Kulhanek, founder of Premier Travel, talks about how she is helping travelers, especially those 50 and over, plan once-in-a-lifetime bucket list vacations.

Since the COVID-19 travel shutdowns, would-be vacationers have been cooped up for a long time. Now that much of the world is opening up, they are ready to get out and about.

While planning a vacation was a DIY exercise for many before the shutdowns, things have certainly changed. More and more discerning travelers aren’t willing to jeopardize their vacation experience trying to navigate travel restrictions and COVID protocols on their own. Instead, they are turning to pros like Anne Kulhanek.

Specializing in once-in-a-lifetime bucket list vacations, Anne’s team at Premier Travel amplifies traveler’s vacation dreams beyond what they thought was possible. Her vacations are never cookie cutter and always customized.

During the interview, Anne explained that what makes a trip ‘once in a lifetime’ is defined by her clients, saying, “Luxury for everyone is so different. The word luxury is commonly used in travel, and it’s funny because every travel supplier considers themselves to be luxury. But it really is defined by you. For you, luxury might be a first-class airline ticket to Europe, and staying in a penthouse suite at a certain hotel. For somebody else, luxury might be traveling to Ireland just being among the locals, staying at an authentic hotel, and meeting the owner of a little pub. So luxury really is, in my opinion, about doing what you want to do in the way that you want to do it. Whether it’s off the beaten path or an iconic place that’s very popular, it is about you, what you want out of this trip, and what’s customized just for you.”

With over two decades of travel agency experience, Anne’s strong relationships with quality travel providers, along with her network of local partners and guides, ensures her clients have the trip of a lifetime. As independent agents, Anne’s team at Premier Travel works on behalf of their clients, shopping and selecting travel providers who will deliver exactly what they need and at the best price.

I encourage all our employees to take advantage of Toastmasters. It undoubtedly can help your career.”

 “When I was elected club president in the middle of a pandemic, I knew it would be challenging as our employees were all working remotely at the time. But being surrounded by a team of strong club officers and with the continued support from the leaders in our organization, we have been able to not just sustain our club, but thrive by adding new members,” says Rebecca Barrack, Acts2Speak Club President and Asst. Manager of Communications at Christian Care Ministry.

Headquartered in Englewood, Colo., Toastmaster’s International membership exceeds 357,000 in more than 16,600 clubs in 143 countries. Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped people from diverse backgrounds become more confident speakers, communicators, and leaders.
