Backyard Riches programs do not teach you how to garden. They teach you how to make money gardening, by using the SPIN-Farming system. It is as close to a franchise as you can get while still accommodating the creative and place-based nature of growing.
The growing techniques are not, in themselves, breakthrough. What is novel is the way a SPIN-based business is created and run. SPIN provides everything you’d expect from a good franchise: a business concept, marketing advice, financial benchmarks and a detailed day-to-day workflow. In standardizing the system and creating a reproducible process it really isn’t any different from McDonalds.
When you learn SPIN via the Backyard Riches programs, this is what you will be able to do:
1) Make significant income from growing spaces that are less than an acre in size.
This means you don’t have to own much – if any – land. To get started you can use a backyard, community garden plot or vacant lot.
2) Start up with minimal gear.
This means you do not need to a lot of money to start up, and minimal investment produces a much better bottom line, sooner.
3) Grow what you sell, not sell what you grow.
This means you will have steady, predictable income and cash flow using precise revenue targeting formulas so that you run your operation like any other type of small business.
4) Manage all your tasks efficiently
This means you will plan a day-by-day work flow, so that you do not get overwhelmed or burn yourself out
