We're seeing all of these other groups that are basically the morlocks. Whether they're soldiers are these or they're you know the henchmen of satan the very much kind of brutish morlock concept going on there. Oh man i love satan's minions we've mentioned horseflesh before but some of the other guys like the guy who's got the speaking of the horn coming right out of the front of his head and how they're all those like plastic raincoats. Kinda thing it's just. I love that. Look it's so good well. They're almost like nancy. Urban activists who kids in the hall. David warner i cannot say enough. Good things about david warner and it drives me crazy because my wife cannot remember. David warner is because she'll be like i'll be like oh cool. Stephen warner's with who's that i'm like. Okay well he was master control program and try on. He was the evil genius in in Time bandits he was this klingon and this episode. He was this. It's gonna get an eight by eleven. Put it up above the television. And i always go back to time after time because like that was probably one of the first times i ever saw him. And i'm just like he was the best. Jack the ripper that has ever been jack the ripper and i thought it was really interesting about how he does evil in both films. Because essentially all the comedic moments come with malcolm mcdowell being the fish out of water never with and Dive worn and he plays evil. Really stripe down the line and you'll frightened of inveigh whereas evil genius in time bandits. He's more comedic joke really. I mean he's he's still capable of doing some terrible things Is less frightening. And as i said before more theatrical so i love that contrast that she has ryan she can play evil in those two different ways and of course another film that i had some great comedic trump's with.

I'm really excited to you. Drove into the diagnose your disease yes a my disease out. Birth your unit from you know both of your parents have to have the gene or or whatever in their in their system. They don't necessarily have the disease but they had the gene that gives it to their child So and then there's a one in four chance that your child how's it. So i i had to lucky number and my parents had together and then i was the first child So lucky right. But i i was diagnosed it to With my disease. It's very slow progression. So i was normal up until about two. I was walking. And then what. My dad said. He noticed i've started reverting back into That crawling enrollment and you know digressing so he took me there to the hospital and all the doctors for you know period of time and eventually they diagnosed as a spinal muscular atrophy. And so you know. I used to be able to do a lot of things on my own I like playing video games on the console writing holding a book. Whatever feeding myself Over twenty six years time. I'm down to what you see here with my mouses and on the computer right and so if i basically my muscles can not grow Self i stopped doing something or an extended period of time with month or two. I lose that ability right. And so i me being on the computer every day basically allows me to maintain that middle strength. I have at the makes sense. Yeah i mean one of these really impressed me about A week or so ago was your read your determination you know an here you are with a company of. I think you said fifteen people in your team on talking to you but my my armand she mentioned as such so too great to wherever wherever your challenges i mean. If you put your mind to it you can pretty much abc kick-ass and be successful so real huge credit not too far building a great company kicking us there. So yeah yeah beneficiary that and showing believer that adversity is really the the the way they're stepping stone into the greatness. I mean you that. See somebody that super successful. That started in that way. You know they always. They always started somewhere very low. And you know. I i know a lot of people we work with seven figure Landscaping companies and a lot of people in my circle when it's always so interesting to hear them have still ways of like being before. I was thirty five. I went bankrupt the lived in a trailer park. And it's like here. They are now with a seven figure company with eight different crews and it just kinda crazy how life works. I find it actually very difficult for people that are kinda given everything early. Very difficult for them to navigate the waters of life. Because it's kind of like they started backwards. Right now agreed agreed. Wanted to jump into you mentioned being involved in the green end the no. You're at the moment. Landscape tech events in florida last year. So how did you get involved in the green industry. And i new. You also did an article with gonna landscape as well but obviously america's health in such agree industry so tell me a little bit absolutely so I'll give you the short version which is still belong but Being business at the fifth year being business i was really kind of getting tired of servicing a variety of different industries. So we have a dog groomer and barbara in somebody telling here in front or whatever right and so it's very difficult to provide a top tier service when you're not doing something over and over for the same style of service offered building web sites in all different types of industries or businesses. It's very difficult to kind of hone in on the granular difficulties. And fix those. So i decided to. It was time to focus on a niche in. We're still well established in ish focused on that So that was about the fifth year in. I looked into a lot of different initiatives A lot of them were home. Based services like construction plumbing Even did some stuff like printing presses. You name it. And so i was looking into the lawn care industry to and we kinda fell into that We are joined. I joined a group on. Facebook called lawn. Life shall not to them and A great people in there and start sharing someone working and back then. I was doing things for really really low rates just two foot in the door and and kind of get the word out about me. It gets recognition In that slowly. Took off to your time and i think i've mentioned this to you previous call. But until the nineteen we hit Ninety thousand gross revenue which was like breaking for us because every year prior was forty thousand. Fifty salih were super still and then in twenty twenty. A about a quarter million and gross revenue. Which is tripling our previous record breaking. Revenues us being able to solidify ourselves in the niche and then scale from their allowed us to hyper focus on the service right but also very rapidly Find solutions for problems that we were able to diagnose because let's face it. We're pretty landscaping websites. Obviously we women's be unique but landscaping is landscaping. So i've been able to me. My team have been able to understand like the ins and outs of the landscaping business. Joke team all the time. Like if i wanted to i can start a landscaping business. Have all the experience and knowledge and someone of the strategies that everybody's using picked up on it really quick right so i had that experience and knowledge of what's involved in your business which allows him for myself in your shoes and really do what i do best winter strategy and so i didn't answer the rest of your question by the album on life really was a big Roy bluer up and give us a lot of attention. i went to ge in nineteen met some really great people. When there's peop- persons was a stephen warner from somebody He introduced me to lawn and landscape and actually paid for my trip in my tickets to go there with him. Some we went there and spent the weekend together. mess some other roy. Great people and Yeah i got published an article in lung landscape which is super exciting. This is all very new to me. So i'm just taking it as it comes. You know but super grateful to be in the industry and being able to help. People grow the businesses to addiction for me. So awesome also watched What does the future look like.

"Then Jordan Cole Accord who sits right outside here she does all of our contact creation as far as design and then utilize a number of different agencies here in town for video or if you've seen the latest one it's me with a Gopro holding a Madison John Johnson who is a contractor for us who does all of our interviews and one of those today so it's a mixture of a lot of stuff but really we take the content turn over to Laura and then she just knocked oxygen out of the park very cool awesome. That's smart I mean you guys are tech companies so y y go outside of the digital realm. When you can reach everyone you need to. Yep So um and what is your goal. Do you have a gold this year or long-term like number of users. Zach type thing yeah so to give you an idea last year. We had a goal of reaching nine hundred users on the platform in years We did a little bit better than that so now going forward. I've had a goal for a while to where I would love to have fifteen thousand users on the platform by the end of the year and I think we're on the right track for that awesome especially with the the number of downloads origin activity on a platform and putting strategy behind that to have sustainable growth one things. I think a lot of people get caught up in is it's really exciting to see growth but it's also two sided two edged sword and to wear the the greatest way that you can or the fastest way you can fail as through rapid growth and so having that strategy behind that make sure that we're growing sustainably and we kind of put the cart before the horse is something that we're really focusing being on makes sense long-term. Is this something you see yourself being a part of or this team probably this team in the future or is it something something that you would look to sell down the road or is there any thought of that yes so when you look at technology companies. It's real if if you were to ask me this question and then five five years from now. I sit down and listen to my answer. It will probably be different but the we're going to run this company like we're. GonNa have it forever. Urban always prepared for opportunity so that you can continue to provide value to your customers and so we have gone buddy and if you go back through any of my old interviews this is kind of the proving ground forest approved at this model of sustainable to move into other industries sir and that's something that we're actively I'm not pursuing but we have on the table for expansion in the future so we're we're we made our team will get bigger but only wichita awesome. That's good to hear we're glad to have you. What are the challenges of started was that you've experienced -perienced starting a startup or specifically starting startup in Wichita. What are some of those broke so starting business in Wichita. is probably one of the easier things that if there's someone out there listening who's interested in starting a business to do simply because the cost of living living here so you can de risk a lot is maybe. Wyoming Wyoming is more expensive actually but so the when you look at it and you D risk your time investment your financial investment into it. You have almost the perfect environment to do that. depending on the business that you're going to start so starting a business here for us was relatively easy and actually actually accelerated some of the things that we were doing as far as me seeing when. Stephen Warner was sitting in class and I had this idea and then being surrounded by the community unity is supported to make sure that we can turn it into a reality that was fantastic and that support system is still here are so many different programs that go on to help nope with entrepreneurs or or up and coming business owners but as far as scaling company from here. It's been difficult at the Times for instance. When we watch the first bit of technology it was not well received but that's not which is fault. That's acted acted name a an APPs that has started in which Tom last ten years and so you're early. Adopters are going to be a little a lot less in our market versus like an Austin or someone who says a lot of new technology coming out but we're happy that we get to be pioneers on this path to the blaze a trail for others to come because because now which is still one of our largest markets as far as the brand loyalty NPR continuously using the platform new provider sign up so yeah that's been that's been fantastic so very cool. Is there any insurance on either side whether it's the user side or the business this side of it for for the people use the APP on either the business side or the customer side. Yes so Lomba obviously has business insure right right. We're at the point. Um We've been at the point for only time that we we need that. we actually offer insurance through the platform we don't but we did a strategic partnership with. I am a actually I'm working with another kind of supplemental insurance company as well to provide that to our users they don't they're not required are to use our insurance. we provided as an easy pass through for them to get better rates or getting contact with someone who is but as far as requirements we we don't have requirements. We just expect them to be professional. Business run their business like they should absolutely like. I said we we don't we don't go out and cut the grass and we're just in writing software to the folks that do here so of the sixers show people that are here in Wichita. What are those roles. How does that kind of broken out yeah so it's equally early divided between sales and customer support and developer development so we're we're really heavy so we have three full time developers. one is primarily web the other is android and then and then we have three sales and customer support roles better here as well. I'd than we have. The contractors fill out our legal legal team our sales team and all the marketing and stuff and what does your day to day look like. Are you here in the office lottery. You travel into kind of spread the word. How does that look. I'm I'm here in the office so one of the beauties of this technology is that I don't have to travel a lot. I still do travel but not near as much as what people think I do but the day to day for me ranges really so a lot of times I feel like a firefighter on around putting out fires but a lot is building those relationships with investors and then steering the ship in the right direction and making sure that we're on a path for success and that everything is is moving in a straight line. It's a lot like I'm sure you experience in your role of. You have a project. You need to make sure that everything is happening on time efficient manner because we don't have that then you're using spends nothing. We're going to get done yeah for sure and so that's kind of what makes up the day to day so is. I know it doesn't snow a ton of Wichita so how much are the percentage of Lombady is like snow is there you have a lot of business north yes so one of the beauties of switching into that. Lombardi pro platform is that we allowed them to to listen services they offer to we don't really have that guest house and we don't have to necessarily offer it to where they just manage it through the platform and with their customers and we provide them that that audience or the software solutions to bill dark at that so yeah. Nice how much success is hard work and hustle and grind versus luck. Would you say you know I think the lucky are lucky. People are well prepared and so the kind of the hard hard work that gets put in is is a lot of it yeah right the kind of what I said earlier of putting your head down getting the work done and writing it out through the ups and downs. It's real real easy to jump out during the downs but if you don't ride that and go back up you're gonNA miss the opportunity so you just have to be present for opportunity to knock ah for that luck to happen because if you're if you're not there then he can answer the door. So what advice would you have have for an aspiring entrepreneurs. which were somebody for example with an APP idea? What would be the first to you tell them to do so. Don't be afraid to tell people about it. nobody's. GonNa Steal your idea. The go talk to people about it and get your customer validation. That's number. One thing is find. Your customer talked to one hundred people that would tell you yes they would pay for that yeah and then start building out your plan business model canvassing if if anyone's familiar with that or not it's a fantastic first step to go through how your business would work and then that leads into your actual business model but I would say don't be afraid of failure because failure in my opinion. Is this morning opportunities to refine what you're doing. I felt a lot of failure. Oh you're but I've also had a lot of opportunities to learn and refine what we do and what kraft is and just hang tough. You know something the that we were told a lot and growing up especially in Wyoming is hang in there and enjoy the ride but seek out resources. The other thing thing is that nobody no hero is going to show up to help you with your business. You need to put the work in you need to go up. You need to seek those mentors and oftentimes a lot of people look at me and say oh I was just lucky I was in the right place at the right time what they don't see as me knocking on those doors constantly showing up and just sitting in people's. Dell's offices and waiting until someone would see me in being persistently annoying to get what what I needed and so do not think that someone who's just GonNa show up and help you with your problems. You've got to roll your sleeves up. Get dirty and put the work in otherwise. You'll just be the person five years from now. WHO said I had that idea. I love that do you have anything else to touch on with Lon Buddy. You know your touch on we're continuously growing and refining technology every day we get new requests for features in we're in the midst of some pretty big partnerships with some some uh-huh large names in the technology space that were really excited about that those immigration partnerships and it's something that's going. GonNa be really beneficial for our company but also talk putting that on the map and so like I said if we if we sat down and looked at at this a year from now there'll be a lot of things that are different so I hope we can continue oh absolutely yeah continue do this every year depending on fastest growing maybe more often than that it's going to be cool to share that story with everybody so yeah absolutely so and if anyone ever needs any help with if they have a question about starting a business or finding finding a CTO filling I love helping other business owners and other people who are interested in becoming business owners entrepreneurs.
