Toby's StoryI was going down a bad road. It was so difficult for me to socialize in normal settings because everyone just stared at me, like I was a mutant. They would gasp and scoff. They'd point with their hands over their mouths and everything. It was awful. I'd reached my wit's end. I was the last to realize that I was suffering from OLS.
Toby: From Farmer to Fabio
In 1987, Toby started his landscaping business. Armed with a sci-fi theory that he referred to as 'Global Warming,' an idea that he could solve it by planting more trees, he put on his overalls and hit the streets. Unfortunately, 24 years later and Toby's business was really suffering. When he took a step back and tried to evaluate what the issue was he couldn't see anything. That's because Toby was wearing his problem. His overalls. He wore them everywhere. His dressed-down-farmer appearance was not attracting new customers. Instead it was casting a bad light on his business. He also was his own graphic designer. He made his own flyers and didn't see a thing wrong with them. He saved money, they were bright and friendly, just like he was. But a close friend told him they were cheesy and suggested he get help. After a few weeks with HUBLERcreative, a shopping spree and a shiny new identity kit, Toby's business is growing exponentially.
