Each month we want to recognize a standout provider who has demonstrated excellence across the board. This November, it’s Ronnie C. in Detroit!
All of our providers are extremely skilled, yet Ronnie really sets himself apart for how uniquely multi-faceted his talents are!
LawnGuru helps pros build their routes by filling in schedule gaps and adding more customers to their client base; with Ronnie the app takes it to another level. It’s a means to turn his outdoor service expertise into dollars to fund his schooling, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of his journey!
He’s a top tiered LawnGuru Pro and an integral member of two bands all while working through his masters program at the University of Michigan.
He started out with a love for the outdoors and knew he could capitalize on that at a young age. He cut grass in high school which helped put him through his undergrad but he wasn’t satisfied just yet and wanted to further his education.
Being business minded and operating a lawn company early on provided him with the skills and mindset to work hard knowing that there is no limit to what he can achieve.
“I enjoy landscaping but I know it’s not something I want to do forever and I know it’s important to do what you love so you can love what you do which is why I decided to head back to school with a focus on clinical social work.”
We’ve been grateful to work with Ronnie season after season season now which isn’t uncommon for LawnGuru Pros as our turnover rate is so low. Essentially, the crews we work with, we work with for a long time allowing us to build professional relationships and friendships with many. We’re grateful to say we learn from these driven individuals on a daily basis.
Ronnie is days away from obtaining his masters degree all while crushing cleanup season with us and getting amped up for winter snow service.
Beyond that, we’ve been fortunate enough to see him excel in his own environment.
When he plays locally we head down to see his shows, and we have to tell you, he’s got a talented group! There’s something special seeing hard work and preparation meet at the sweet spot of success, and we learn how important it is to keep striving!
Aside from Ronnie being remarkably musically inclined, he’s also well traveled-having spent months backpacking through Europe on numerous occasions. If we ever need to know a good wine pairing, Ronnie’s just a quick text away and we have our answer.
So what’s his favorite part about LawnGuru?
LawnGuru popped up on Ronnie’s radar through a network of friends from high school who were also doing lawn and landscape work. After hearing their reviews of the app and the accessibility he decided to apply and start his own part time route. For Ronnie, the beauty of using LawnGuru is that he can pick up dozens of on demand jobs throughout the week that work around his busy school schedule and weekend music gigs.
What Makes Ronnie a standout?
We come across all kinds of contractors in this industry that defy the common misconception that the guys who work in the landscaping space are one dimensional. Ronnie is just one example of how this isn’t the case! Yes, he does own his own company like all of our pros but that began as a way to pay for school. Big picture thinking and entrepreneurial skills are what propelled Ronnie into Provider of the Month recognition as well as being an exceptional scholar, and master guitarist.
We admire and respect all of our providers, and feel honored to work with such determined guys & gals. As we round out our first full year of honoring our Providers of the Month, we’d like to thank not only all of the providers who were featured, but every single LawnGuru contractor. If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be us! If you’d like to be the last Pro of the Month of 2018, reach out and nominate your company!
