BizCover is proud to announce that we now have over 100,000 small businesses insured through our service. Since our start in 2008, we have experienced exponential growth and we continue to help as many small businesses to do the same. To celebrate, we decided to get in touch with the 100,000th customer himself, Mark Brand of MB’s Lawnmowing, and talk to him about his business and why he chose BizCover.
To get started, can you please give a brief description of your business?
“For the past 20 years I’ve been running my own lawnmowing business, servicing both residential and commercial clients.”
What inspired you to start your own business?
“After working as a greenkeeper at a golf course for years, I realised I didn’t want to be a brown-nose for the rest of my working days, so I decided to strike out on my own – and 20 years later, business couldn’t be better.”
What is your favourite thing about your job?
“Simply put, it’s being my own boss, which affords me a lot more flexibility and time with my wife and 4 young boys, something that a typical job might make more difficult.”
What attracted you to purchasing your insurance through BizCover?
“To be honest, my wife, Kimberly – who also manages my books – took care of that for me.”
You did your research, Kim!
Finally, what advice would you give to someone looking to start their own business?
“Establishing and maintaining strong customer relationships is key. Always return calls from your clients, and always be sure to call if you think you’re going to be late or not make it to a job. Be open and transparent and they’ll be understanding, and you’ll have a stronger relationship because of it.”
To further celebrate our 100,00th customer milestone, we’re giving away 5 x $100 vouchers to help your hip pocket and make running your business even easier. *Enter for your chance to win here: https://woobox.com/jma3qe
