Isiah's story

I am a resident of Rochester, New York where I was born and raised, where I learned at a young age that nothing is given and that if you want anything you must work hard to obtain it.  I started out like any young boy mowing my own lawn every Saturday morning by my fathers request, but it never felt like a chore to me. He would say "quality work speaks for itself: take pride in what you do," so I took that advice and began going door to door in my neighborhood offering to mow lawns, remove leaves and shovel snow in the winter when I was too young to get a job.  My aunt Akaby gave me my first recurring weekly mowing jobs, after turning her jungle of a backyard into a usable space.  Since then I've been determined to own and operate a lawn maintenance business. After years of working jobs where there was no room for advancement and hours that prevented me from spending time with my family, I decided at 33 now I will start my business and get back to doing what I always enjoyed . So Little Trim was established August 21, 2018. I did this with the support and encouragement of my wife and children. I want to have something solid to pass down to them and to show them that anything is possible when you work hard and have a plan. As a business owner I am motivated by the look of satisfaction on my customers' faces when the job is completed. I am passionate about succeeding and becoming one of the top providers in the landscaping industry. I take pride in the quality of work I provide and in my city. I'm determined to grow my business here in Rochester, NY.
