Hi, and thank you so much for opening this Presidents Message. I am Pammy Cole, President and founder of Green & Christmas Concepts. I am proud to say that my company is the “Original” Plant and Christmas Rental Franchise, successfully operating this business since 1982.
I am honored that you are here right now! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to encourage you to always follow your dreams! I believe somehow that the Universe aligns us all to meet certain new people when the timing is right. Perhaps you are reading this because you are ready to start something new? If so, lets begin together…….
I knew pretty early on that I would never be a successful employee! I didn't like being inside all day and I just could not see myself doing this for the rest of my life. There had to be a better way for a woman like me. When my children started school I thought, I’ve got to find something to do that I could enjoy, and that I can be passionate about. So…….
I got this crazy idea to start a little Plant & Flower Shop in a local empty gas station in Sparks Nevada. I called them up and offered to rent their delapidated gas station for $250 a month and they said ok! I could NOT believe it! Now what was I going to do? I’m a little creative and I knew how to keep plants alive so I thought, why not? What have I got to lose? We sprayed the entire gas station lime green inside and out and for months I would sell my small inventory, close my shop, rush to the wholesalers, buy more, sell more, then do the same thing all over again the following day. I was determined to make this work and I had very little money, but I made it work! Pretty soon everybody in town was stopping by and spending money. I had a ball!
BIG Hotels & Casinos began asking me to rent my plants for not only the hotels but for stages of performing artists, and I was definitely over my head. I had NO idea how to rent plants, I had just sold them, but then a true live miracle happened: A lovely woman walked into my shop one day and proudly announced, “I just sold my Plant & Christmas Rental Business in Las Vegas to be with my ailing mother. Would you like me to teach you how to RENT your plants and Christmas Decorations?” My mouth dropped to the ground!!!!!!! My prayers had been answered in a very loud and defining way! (Like someone was actually listening and wanted me to succeed. I do believe that is what happened or I would NOT be here right now 35 years later for you to be reading about my business success at this very moment….) Anyway back to the story……
We grew very quickly! We rented plants to ALL the Casinos in Reno & Lake Tahoe, then they asked for Christmas Rentals, so we RENTED Christmas Decor too. I even opened a second retail location in Reno. Similar to my now lifelong friend & mentor, my own business had grown too big for me to handle, so I sold my entire business, and I relocated with my twin daughters back to Southern California. Spent some time on the beach, and was now ready to get back to work. I knew from experience that Renting the Plants and Christmas decorations was the most profitable part of my business, I could work from home and raise my daughters at the same time.
I know the difference between working smart NOT hard, and I wanted to work the least amount of time, for the biggest profits. Renting does that, because you are rent the same exact plants and/or Christmas Decorations year after year, and customers want the same décor back each year, because we are now their new tradition.
Over the next 15 years I build my little business to 325 yearly plant contracts, & 75 yearly Christmas Contracts. We were big again, my daughters were going off to the world, so I sold this now gigantic business, and relocated to my childhood vacation spot, San Luis Obispo, in sleepy Northern California between Santa Barbara & San Francisco. Oprah voted this the happiest small town in America, and she is right, it’s a lovely little town, population 40,000 with a real small town feel and slow paced life.
While in the process of selling & re-training the new buyers, I documented everything you will need to start this business. I knew even then I would be teaching others just like you, how to do this, and to this day it never fails to delight me when I see you guys get your first contract!! Wahoo it is really fun being part of your life and watching you grow prosper and create a career for yourself. Entrepreneurship ROCKS and it is now truly my calling. My bucket list includes creating as many entrepreneurs in my lifetime as I can. Men and women just like you are starting this business all over the world. The latest popular spot is Brazil, South America. Companies love a beautiful office full of lush plants, and they all need someone to create Christmas in their office for them.
Without giving away my 30 years of solid successful business experience, I will say; that finding customers is VERY easy when you know where to look, and what to say = and I can teach you that plus a whole lot more! The books and videos are simple to understand, and give you step-by-step instructions from getting a business license to securing lots of high paying contracts that mail checks to your home every single month, year after year. I hope you will give us the opportunity to get to know you, and help you find customers who will respect you, and want and need what you offer, all the while paying you great money in order to have your plants or décor grace their locations. From Car Dealerships, to retirement homes, restaurants, banks, hotels, medical facilities, shopping centers and more, they all need you and actually have a budget for this service. Be the first in your area to offer this proven method and never forget I am only a call or email away. When you can show a client real value, they are happy to pay your price!
All of your customers will sign a minimum one-year contract so monthly payments are guaranteed! When your client walks into his or her office, and sees how beautiful your plants or decorations are they are delighted to sign your check, and that is absolutely the bottom line.
I have easily owned over 1 million healthy plants in my lifetime, and I do know a thing or two about keeping plants healthy & alive. As for Christmas Rentals; it’s a HUGE influx of cash into your life every season for less than MAX 6 weeks of work. I personally have been paid upwards of $25,000.00 just to decorate one tree. Granted this was an amazing contract, an amazing tree, in an amazing hotel, but I qualified because of my experience and reputation. I work hard at my business and still to this day enjoy every day of my career, and I would like to invite you to consider joining us today. Why not? The purchase price is at all time low, we include a free seminar, free website, and business coaching whenever you need us, and this is all guaranteed to you by the signed contract we provide you when you join.
Our members collectively water millions of growing plants all over the world!
When the plants do well, your business grows, and it grows green money!
Christmas Rentals is a short window of time but a huge amount of profits!
I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our upcoming seminars, till then; take care and think about what I have said here, this could be the best thing that ever happened to you, as it has been for many before you…….
Pammy Lee Cole, President
