Landscaper Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Landscaper in Kokomo:
"Dead end."
I have worked in this field for many years, thinking that one day they would realize that I was a valuable asset to their company. That day has yet to come. In the last three years, I have not received a raise and I have now made less this year than the year before. I have capped out. I have came to the dead end. I have nothing to show for it either. Plan for something better in the future.
