#9 I'll Grant You That w/ George Holmes PhD & Keyri Moreno-Bonnett, Hire Henry Co-Founders

Welcome to Automated Success, the only father-daughter podcast in the outdoor automation market.

Is there anything better than getting double the value AND half the hassle for the same price? This week we’ve got two mighty impressive guests, here to present their cutting-edge solution to the landscaping industry’s labor crisis. George Holmes PhD and Keyri Moreno-Bonnett are the co-founders of Hire Henry, where they’ve set their sights on creating a robotic mower with performance indistinguishable from a human operator on a zero turn lawn mower. The pair received a National Science Foundation grant in 2018, and led a team that conducted a thorough investigation of the labor shortage crisis in commercial professional landscaping - including 100+ landscaping organizations across 7+ states. Key results of the study can be found here:

But before we start this week’s episode, I want to invite you to check out where you can watch each episode's BEST Business Automation and Growth strategies, and download a FREE copy of Joe’s “12 Keys To Maximizing your Business Potential!”
