Elevator Pitch

IMG_3678Our assignment for this week's business class is to write an "elevator pitch."  This is a short (100 words or less) description of your business and what customers will get from doing business with you.  Dave and I worked on this together on our long car ride home from Leech Lake.This is what we have so far:Natural Plus Nursery is a family owned business that has sold plants and landscaping supplies to local homeowners, businesses, gardeners, and landscape contractors for 36 years.  We have the largest selection of landscape plants in the area.  We offer trees and shrubs in various sizes, perennials, herbs, starter vegetables, and home and garden decor.  We aim to educate our customers on where and how to plant and how to care for their plants.We are going to do one more revision on Wednesday night and we will present this to the class on Thursday.  I can't believe its going to be week 4 already! Dave and I are really benefitting from the activities and "homework" we have to do for the class.  It forces us to sit down and talk about what we really want for the business (and our personal lives) in a more organized manner.
