Jeff & Beck, Autumn Lane Owners
Autumn Lane Design Co is a division of our parent company, Autumn Lane Paperie. We’re a veteran owned & family-run business which has focused on serving the female entrepreneur clientele & we’re very good at what we do.
Autumn Lane Design Co. is reflective of our belief that we can take the same skills & serve a completely different market just as well, perhaps even better with our experience in beautiful, functional design & our focus on lasting relationships & customer service. We’ll deliver capabilities & results that enable you busy guys & gals to focus on working smarter, not harder, when it comes to your business with our own business experience & Green Industry background.
On a personal level, my own background after high school is military intelligence followed by 5 years as a landscape professional – can’t really pay the bills legally on the outside with the skills they gave me. I was able to take a donated John Deere riding mower & a borrowed trailer in the second half of the year 2000 & turn that into a $250,000+ business in 4 years with a couple crews on the road and then – I sold it. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I did that, especially considering the guy didn’t honor his side of the bargain but that’s what happened & it was painful to watch him run it into the ground. I was a licensed pesticide operator in SC & GA so I was able to scramble & make up for the income I’d been counting on with a new business but it wasn’t enough, so I went back into government work for the next 5 years.
After a massive life change, I moved to California & set up another lawncare business but the reality of life came knocking & I had to sell that company due to constant pain & I started making websites for my wife’s design clients. We’ve grown our company from a one-woman show to a business that involves 7 people, total. You can see us all here (link).
Earlier Days – I’m the Guide, not the TI
Life now is focused on our family & our business is an integral part of that – we think that business, while not necessarily easy, is simple at its core & our philosophy is that good business is doing what we promise, both for our clients & our own people.
These are really old – I also didn’t take enough apparently, or they didn’t survive the various moves around the world.
