The Retirement Trainer

Jun 24, 2021

Scholl’s Landscaping and Design, located in Columbus, Ohio, was shut down for only a few weeks in March of 2020, but their journey back to any sort of “normal” has been a fascinating one. Despite significant success, they’re now facing issues including labor shortages, supply chain issues, and skyrocketing costs for materials.

In today’s episode, we ask business owner Jordan Scholl an important question: with every job taking a little longer and being a little more expensive to complete, what should you do? Jordan walks us through how his business is navigating the post-COVID world–and explains what business owners and consumers can expect as we continue working towards being fully reopened.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn: 

  • How Scholl’s Landscaping survived the pandemic as a business that was in massive demand from April 2020 onward.
  • Why the cost of basic supplies, like lumber, are higher than ever before.
  • How Jordan differentiates his business from other landscapers–and how a rebrand for the company in 2013 proved hugely valuable.
  • What Jordan does to handle work-life balance as a father of three children–and why he doesn’t work weekends.
  • Why it’s so hard to hire right now–and what roles in particular have proven all but impossible to find the right talent for.
