Poised in front of his computer, local businessman Scott Smolen sends an e-mail while his software program finishes updating. He then checks an appointment in his Blackberry, packs up his laptop and heads out to see a client, calling on his cell phone to say he is on his way. To Scott, there’s little doubt that the latest technological innovations help him better manage his career. Years ago when he started his first business, the only tools he used were a lawnmower, a rake and his own two hands.
Scott established his roots in the business world by cutting lawns in his hometown of Bowie. When Scott was in middle school, he started a landscaping business with one employee—himself—and no plans for expansion. He was just looking to make a few bucks before going back to school. By the end of the summer, the business began to take root in the community, and Scott envisioned for the first time a future for himself as an entrepreneur.
Over the next decade, the business grew strong and had 25 employees and a long list of satisfied customers when Scott sold it. The experience gave him a solid foundation for success as a businessman and allowed him to branch out to pursue other business opportunities and interests. His personal hobbies include going to the gym and playing flag football, but spending time with his wife, Debbie, and their three children is his favorite way to spend his free time.
A Strong Foundation
Scott credits his parents for giving him the support and inspiration to become the person he is today. As small-business owners themselves in addition to working full-time jobs in the teaching profession, they also taught him the right way to run a business: listen to what your customers want and treat them with respect. These simple but important lessons are at the heart of Scott’s business philosophy.
