Journey of failures

Pollard Media Co.

I started a lawn care business with my best friend, Paxton Biggs, in 2013. We named it Grass Busters Lawn Care. "who ya gonna call??" Lol.. Really though, we were excited.

We were 21 years old going to college at OU, and this business got us through some hard times. To this day, I am incredibly proud of that venture.

I didn't realize it at the time, but starting that business was more than just a means to an end. I was satisfying an itch. An itch that I think all entrepreneurs have. It's difficult to explain, but I know it's a commonality amongst those who "do their own thing". These people are realtors, business owners, and other types of entrepreneurs. Some might classify us as psychopaths, and they might be a little right lol..

In May of 2016 I walked across the stage in Norman. This was the most relieving day of my life. 5 years of torture, beer drinking, failing, succeeding, struggling, and striving.

Minutes before walking across the stage, I checked my capstone grade online. I believe it was a 79.9% or something like that, so I made it! They weren't going to round it up but I didn't care at all! I had already accepted an amazing job that was waiting for me the next week. I just needed to pass lol.

All of 4 months go by of me being a "9 to 5" person. I couldn't deal with the mundane nature of my desk job as a GIS Analyst. I wasn't going to leave, but I definitely wasn't going to continue a 9 to 5 routine where I just go home every night and wither away.
