Reid Somloi is a Thumbtack Top Pro and owner of the Somloi Landscape Services in Huntersville, North Carolina. Here’s what it felt like starting his own business, as told to Thumbtack.
Starting a business was a domino effect for me. First, I was a kid and someone needed a lawn mowed. When I got my driver’s license, I started bidding on lawn maintenance in my area. Once I turned 18, I could sign formal business paperwork. I forced myself to get out of my comfort zone. I’m in college now. Everything I make, I invest back into the business. It taught me life skills, taught me about myself. Stuff that you can’t go to school for — in the end, those life experiences are invaluable.
