My name is Jim Prone, and I joined the Christmas program back in 89′, as one of the originals. Almost immediately I realized I needed the plant business too. If I do Christmas they want plants, if I do plants they want Christmas. The books and videos have made it really easy for a stubborn guy like me to understand everything.
I now make about $8,000.00 a month, and I have 6 part time helpers who water the plants and I go around and say howdy to everybody and just check up on them.
Christmas has been real fun too. I just go in there and tell um I’m going to decorate for them and they say ok, simple as that! We make a load of money, almost $20,000.00 each holiday. Last year our profits were almost 75%. We rent the same decorations over and over, and boy those bows and balls make us a bundle.
My wife is careful to store everything in boxes and bags, so we just pull the tree or wreath out fully decorated, fluff and deliver. I trade out one of my car dealerships for extra space. He gets a decorated tree each year for the showroom in exchange for the storage space in the back of their yard.
From the bottom of my big old Texas heart, thank you for all your help!
