Grave Care – March 2017

The exact moment of springtime – 2014

Springtime Grave Care – In Like A Lion

Across the country, springtime is coming to us in rapid fashion.  Look at the news.  There is harsh weather everywhere.  Here in the southeast, there have been super-cell thunderstorms and a few tornado warnings.

High winds bring down tree limb and cause general disarray to cemetery grounds.  These problems are an amazing source of opportunities for Grave Care Business owners.

Storms Damage Local Cemeteries

We’ve been out in the local cemeteries this month picking up branches, chainsawing problematic trees, and generally tidying things up.  I have to admit, it’s hard work but it’s fun work.  And, it’s VERY rewarding work.

Do you love cemeteries?
Do you love helping people?
Do you love making great money?
Do you love fulfilling and rewarding work?

If any of these are true, have you considered starting a Grave Care Business?

Start A Grave Care Business

You don’t have to be handy with a chainsaw.  There are lots of other services you can offer your clients.

  1. General plot maintenance.
  2. Grave side floral decoration placement.
  3. Tombstone cleaning.

These are just 3 of the services you can offer.  We cover many other services in our professionally produced Grave Care Business Course.

Check out our main page to learn more about the Grave Care course. There is a tremendous amount of information and business tools to help you learn how to do this business.  If you have any questions about the course (before or after your purchase), let me know.

Best of luck this spring….right now is a perfect time to get started.

Though it’s only September, right now is a perfect time to start your Grave Care Business and be ready for Christmastime Grave Care demand.

I love this time of year. The weeks after September’s full moon bring slightly cooler temperatures. Before long, leaves will change colors & fall off trees, grasses will move into their dormant phase, and the calendar will flip over to December & the holiday season. Yes, I know it seems like a long time away but Christmas will be here before we know it.

During Christmas, many families desire Christmas-themed floral decorations for their loved-ones’ gravesites. Since the demand is so high, it is a great idea to begin approaching your clients as soon as possible. While you’re speaking with them about autumn grave plot general maintenance, tombstone cleaning, and autumn floral decorations, you should mention the fact that you are offering Christmas-themed grave decorations for the Christmas season.

End of season Grave Care – Summer 2016

Cemetery Grave Care

It’s August 2016 and I’ve just come in from another beautiful day in a cemetery.

This summer has been one of the hottest on record. Though daily temperatures are still very warm, we are beginning to experience hints of cooler weather. Soon, the evenings will be brisk and autumn colors will beautify all the trees in our local cemeteries.

Since the heat and humidity of July is difficult to take, I try to perform much of my work in the morning and late evening hours. Once August arrives, the humidity begins to decrease and working outside is much more bearable. And, of course, September and cooler weather is just around the corner.

The next several months are perfect for grave care services. This is the perfect time to perform plot maintenance. Old, ugly grasses and weeds can be removed and the ground can be prepared for new seed which will green-up and put down roots during early Autumn. Tombstone cleaning is also in demand from customers this time of year. After a dry, dusty summer, grave stones are in dire need of good wash downs with proper cleaning procedures. Harsh chemicals are not needed. In fact, harsh chemicals can damage tombstone material. Harsh scrubbing can cause further damage to already fractured or fragile grave markers. I always try to take a “do no damage” approach to tombstone cleaning.

In addition to grave plot maintenance and tombstone cleaning, summertime floral decorations should be changed as we transition into the cooler months. Old flower decorations become faded and tacky looking. I always think it’s a shame when I see old flowers on a grave site. Someone spent a lot of time and money to place flowers as an outpouring of respect and love. Flowers that were once beautiful eventually become worn and old and tacky. Autumn is a great time to replace old flowers with new decorations.

Each year, I think of Autumn as our reward for suffering through another hot summer. This is the time of year I, once again, love what I do. 🙂

If you’ve ever thought about the idea of operating your own Grave Care Business, I would like to invite you to read through our entire website. There is a lot of free information here to help you get started. However, if you are truly interested in learning how to start and operate your own successful Grave Care Business, we have developed the Grave Care Business Course. The material in this course is designed to take you from the initial concept of your idea all the way through performing the work correctly, building your client list, and growing your business to the point you might need to hire additional employees to keep up with the demand. You can keep it small or grow your business as large as you want.

We love cemeteries and are always happy to help you start your own Grave Care Business. If you have any questions about the course, please let us know. The rest of the website contains detailed information about everything that is included.

If you’re ready to order, the “Full Course” is on sale for $250 + S&H. I will leave a payment link below.

Have a great autumn!

Happy Fourth of July – Grave Care Decorations

Grave Decorations for July 4th

Grave Decorations for July 4th

We would like to wish everyone a very Happy Fourth of July.

On this holiday, many Grave Care Customers want Red, White, and Blue floral decorations placed on the grave sites of their loved ones. It’s a very festive holiday and it’s nice to see brightly colored and patriotic decorations adorning headstones. So many people love fireworks and cookouts with family members. It helps them to know their loved ones who have passed away are still part of the family and get are thought about with decorations.

After the July 4 holiday, we enter a several week dry spell where there are not many holidays to celebrate. The summer Grave Plot maintenance season will be in full swing and it will be a perfect time for tombstone cleaning. These services will keep us all busy for the next several months (long into the autumn season) and by the time mid-August gets here, floral decorations will need to be changed out for late summer or early autumn colors.

If you have ever thought about operating your own Grave Care Business, right now is a perfect time to start.

We have developed a comprehensive Grave Care Business instructional course designed to help you start and operate your own successful Grave Care Business.

For more information, please read our entire website to learn about the course. We have a “Course Overview” page describing everything that is included with the course. We have 3 different versions.

Happy 4th. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Grave Care Business Course Overview

Personal Goals Advance Your Business Goals

This blog post is longer than my normal post. Read it through to fully see its importance. I convey the idea that personal goal setting has broad and positive implications in your life. Work toward your goals with positive enthusiastic energy. You will be rewarded.

Grave Care Business

Choose Your Goals Carefully

Personal goals advance your business goals. I’d like to share a perfect example of the way a seemingly unrelated personal goal will greatly advance your business goals.

In January, I outlined my goals for this year. I wrote a blog post briefly discussing the idea of goal setting at the beginning of a new year. I am a strong believer in making goals. WITHOUT A GOAL YOU CANNOT SCORE.

I am a strong believer in writing goals down on paper.
I am a strong believer in writing the reasons behind the goals.
I am a strong believer in plotting courses to achieve the goals.

Writing goals down on paper establishes a physical connection to your goals. The physical act of holding a pen in your hand and writing a goal on paper causes a physical investment on your part. Have you heard the term “you must have skin in the game”? Writing your goals on paper is the first part of having “skin in the game.” The goal is not just a passing thought if you make the effort to write it down.

Second; writing down a REASON for the goal helps you establish a “bigger picture” of the goal. For example; if your goal is to start your own business, you might write down that you want to start your own business to have more money for retirement. The idea of more money for retirement supports your efforts of starting your own business.

Third; plotting a course gives you a direction to travel in attaining your goals. You cannot begin a journey without having an initial course. Likewise, you cannot start a business without an initial business plan or business model. Yes, your course will change and you will make adjustments along the journey but you MUST have a course to travel before you start.

As I shared in an earlier blog posting, my goals for this year included:

1) Do a better job researching and exploring cemeteries.
2) Learn about the culture of cemetery care in every cemetery I visit.
3) Improve my ability to travel so I can visit cemeteries in a wide range of geographic locations.

Anyone who reads this blog and keeps up with my Cemetery Exploration channel on YouTube knows that I love being on the water. As you might have seen in some of my Cemetery Exploration Videos, I use my abilities of sailing, power boating, and kayaking to visit hard to reach cemeteries and cemeteries in foreign lands.

When I developed my goals for this year, I tried to develop a method by which I could increase my skills on the water and put those skills to use in my cemetery research. I did this through education. In the first quarter of this year, I completed a 56 hour licensing course on becoming a ship’s captain. Now, I will admit that a 56 hour course, by itself, does not give me the ability to captain a large vessel. However, having my Captain’s License improves my knowledge and increases my ability to travel on such vessels.

I’m happy to announce that I passed all my exams and I am currently awaiting final paperwork for my Captain’s License.

Here’s the beautiful part:

a friend of a friend who knows I have earned my Captain’s License needs help moving a large sailing vessel from Key West, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina next week. Because of the Captain’s License I earned this year, I have been invited to work as crew during this trip.

Key West Cemetery - Key West FloridaNow, how does this relate to cemetery research? Well, Key West, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina have amazing cemeteries. The cemetery in Key West has hundreds of fantastic tombstones and I will be able to study the care that is given to them under the harsh south Florida sunshine. The innumerable cemeteries of Charleston require special care of their own. Those cemeteries are packed into nooks and crannies of Charleston’s small church yards.

This opportunity of sailing from Key West, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina and having the ability to visit the cemeteries in each of those towns would not have presented itself if I hadn’t been active in advancing my education of driving boats.

The Law of Intended Consequences

When I wrote down my goal to “improve my ability to travel so I can visit cemeteries in a wide range of geographic locations” I looked for a skill that I already possessed (sailing) and thought about how I could use that skill to increase my ability to visit cemeteries. I had no idea earning my Captain’s License would pay such quick dividends. I could not have envisioned that improving a skill I already possessed would allow me to study cemeteries in two fantastic towns within one month of completing the Captain’s License exams. However, I knew that working hard to earn a Captain’s License would present unimagined opportunities. I believe the Universe works that way….I believe when you work hard and put your energy into work that you love, you are rewarded with unforeseen opportunities.

So, I’ll ask YOU:

What are your goals for this year?

Key West - Dead EndJust because it’s not January anymore does not mean your goals are at a Dead End.

Cemetery Flowers and Spring Colors

Cemetery Spring Flowers

Cemeteries and Spring Flowers

Spring is underway and our local cemeteries are filled with bright colors.

Flowering trees are bursting forth with pinks and whites. Daffodils have long since burst through an early spring snowfall and are now in full yellow bloom. Virgin sprigs of turf grass provide soft beds of green between rows of tombstones. Song birds fill the air with their calls.

Ahhh…I love spring.

Being able to operate a business which allows me to work in the beautiful lush surroundings of our local cemeteries makes everyday fun. Grave care is a niche business and it is unlike most any business I have ever operated. I describe it as a “feel-good” business. Clients are excited and grateful that someone provides these services. Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away and I know that people all over the United States want to have their Mother’s gravesites cleaned up and maintained for Mother’s Day. Special gravesite floral decorations placed on tombstones prior to May 10 (Mother’s Day 2015) as well as tombstone cleaning and detailed plot maintenance are a few of the grave tending services in demand this time of year.

If you have ever thought about starting a grave care business, right now is a perfect time. This business model is perfect for self-starters and people who enjoy their Cemetery’s peaceful surroundings. Strong client lists are important and, if you price your services properly, there is good money to be made.

I love cemeteries and I believe they should be places of honor and respect. Our grave care business course has been professionally designed to help you start and operate your own grave care business. If you like cemeteries, this might be the perfect business for you.

Grave Care for Autumn and Winter 2014

autumn_mausoleum_cemetery
Grave Care this autumn will keep your business clients happy.

Grave Care in October, November, and December will make money for your business and keep your grave care clients happy.

Autumn is in full swing and grave care clients are mainly interested in Autumn Cemetery Cleanup, Tombstone Cleaning, Pre-Winterization Services, and Floral Grave Decorations for the upcoming holiday season.

September and October are behind us now and the warm early autumn days are slowly turning to blustery chilly afternoons as the sun dips lower on the horizon and winter approaches steadily. Still, even as the days become shorter, there is plenty of work to do in your local cemetery. We like to think of November as a breathing period before a very busy December making sure family gravesites are fully prepared for the holidays of December.

It is fun leaving a cemetery full of well maintained gravesites.

When families come to visit for the holidays, they are excited to see their loved-ones’ grave plots well cared for and they are able to pay their respects with a clear conscience that they have honored their family’s memories and done their part to maintain the respect their loved-ones deserve.

If you have ever thought about starting a Grave Care Business, our company has produced a comprehensive Grave Care Business Course designed to help you start and grow your own Grave Care Business. We offer 3 course levels and believe you will be very pleased with the amount of information, instruction, tutorials, video training, and business tools.

Grave Flowers for Mother’s Day

Cemetery Care on Mother's Day
Grave Flowers and Decorations for Mother’s Day

Grave Side Flowers and Decorations for Mother’s Day.
Start a Grave Care Business.

Mother’s Day is May 10, 2015. Most families will celebrate Mother’s day by buying flowers or taking their Moms out to lunch. Families who have lost their Mom’s want to pay respect to them and many families visit their Moms’ gravesites and take flowers for decoration.

Unfortunately, many adult children have moved away from their childhood hometowns and they are no longer able to visit their Moms’ gravesites. Still, they want to pay respect by bringing flowers or performing the types of maintenance that most cemetery companies do not offer. Detailed landscaping work (other than just mowing the grass) and gravestone cleaning are two of the services many cemetery companies do not offer. However, many grave care businesses do provide these services and right now is a very busy time for them.

Grave care is a niche business and most grave care business owners offer plot maintenance, floral decorations, and grave stone cleaning. Special days such as Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and Father’s Day offer unique opportunities for grave care business owners. By offering the services that grave care customers desire, an entrepreneur can make a great deal of money operating a successful grave care business.

We love cemeteries and have helped many people start successful grave care businesses. If you have ever wanted to start a grave care business, we have developed a comprehensive Grave Care Business Course designed to help you start and grow your own grave care business.
