The Dialogue with Randy Connor
This feature is a question-and-answer session with a new Blount County Chamber member. So here we go with our 86th installment visiting with Randy Connor, owner of C & C Mowing & Landscaping (731.608.6248).
What do you enjoy about your business? I really enjoy working outside and making people's yards look beautiful.
How did you get started? Bought a lawn mower and had to have a way to pay for it.
What is your background? I was raised to be a hard worker. I also went to school to learn how to landscape.
Who is your mentor? My dad, he has always stood beside me and never told me I couldn't do it.
What impacts your business? The weather has a very big impact. Rain puts me behind sometimes. But having no rain means no grass to cut.
Name three things you wish you knew when you started. 1. How hard it is to get your name out there. 2. Winter time slows down 3. The price of the upkeep on equipment.
