Ep 27: Skyler Stocker - From supervising a turkey factory to Stocker Lawn Care

Stocker Lawn Care is a lawn care and pressure washing and gutter cleaning company based in Portia, Arkansas. The company was started about nine years ago by Skyler Stocker, who initially worked the business part-time while maintaining a full-time position at a turkey factory. However, as the business began to grow, Skyler decided to focus on his lawn care company full time. Stocker Lawn Care has since experienced steady growth and now services a mix of residential and commercial clients with a team that ranges from three to eight-plus individuals during peak season.
