I’m one of you. An entrepreneur. A developer (the kind that loves to code). And someone who is obsessed with eliminating the mundane tasks we spend most of our days doing. The ones that prevent us from doing the things that make the biggest impact in our businesses -- and in life. While managing a pest control sales team, I was surrounded by so many tasks that were inefficient, error-prone, and just plain miserable. That’s why I started PestRoutes. This blog is a way for us to share best practices, provide insights, industry trends, and tips and tricks that matter to you and to your clients.
