In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Gary Bredow tells the story of Skye Durrant and Brandon Bertrang, two high school friends who mowed lawns together for money. In fact, Bertrang even paid for college with the profits from his mowing work.

After finishing school, the two decided to use their mowing background and experience to help other local mowing companies.

The two friends have since received over $1 million in funding while trying to make their vision a reality.
