Why Moore Green is a Great Place to Work

We love working with business owners who are dedicated to creating “Great Places to Work.” They are committed to creating opportunities for their team members and giving back to their communities. Today’s spotlight shines on a living, breathing example of that commitment!

Blake Moore began working in the family lawn fertilizer business when he was 11 years old. While he enjoyed working outside and being with friends and family, he wasn’t sure lawn care was his future. While pursuing an accounting degree in college, he entered the horticulture program and found his passion.

At age 32, with his wife expecting their third child, he left the family business and began his own venture. Since that time, Blake has gone from a “solopreneur” who wore all the hats to a business leader who strives to find opportunities for the team members to grow and develop. Through teaching and coaching team members, Blake has found an unexpected joy in business.

Losing his wife to cancer, Blake became a widower, which helped him realize that work supports life and not the other way around. Blake has since remarried, is happier than ever, and is proud of his combined family of eight children. He has served as a board member of the Utah Pest Control and Lawn Care Association for more than twenty years, actively serves in church callings and loves to travel with his wife.

Join us to learn why Moore Green is a great place to work!

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
