Growing up, I was always told that I was going to be an accountant because I was good at math and liked everything neat, orderly, and logical. Despite it all I went into Horticulture, with the ambition to be a landscape architect. Due to my parents not being made of money, I never became an architect.
The point IS that I am now a Landscape Estimator. I work with #'s all day! Somehow I combined my love of plants and design with my propensity for #'s. A lot of what I do is done in Excel, but I still have to come up with the overall cost and man hours for each job we do.
Numbers make the world go 'round.
