10 questions for: is our series of short conversations with the people behind the measurement app smart to plan. The questions are always the same.

Marco Dettke supports smart to plan in marketing and sales and, in addition to building networks, is also responsible for social media. However, Marco is not himself a gardener, which is why the questions to him are sometimes somewhat different.

You can already find out more about Sascha Bohl, now it's Marco's turn.

1. What was your dream job as a child?

As a child, I always wanted to be a professional footballer. I played soccer for almost 20 years in the club and then had to limit my hobby to playing football, for example because of my part-time studies. Looking back, I am very satisfied with the way I have chosen my personal and professional path.

2. How did you get from a student (Bachelor of Arts - Business Administration) to smart to plan?

In my part-time course in "Business Administration", I chose marketing and sales as a major, and I am very interested in this topic. Sascha, the founder of the project, and Marie, who has been with us for around a year, gave me the opportunity to work in precisely these areas.

3. What shouldn't be missing in any garden for you?

For me, a barbecue definitely belongs in a garden! I love to spend cozy evenings with friends or families when the weather is nice, with delicious food and a cool drink.

4. What do you like most about smart to plan?

Even if gardening and landscaping is a completely new experience for me, you quickly notice how innovative and helpful the app is for this area. The uncomplicated handling, the time savings and a number of other features that the app brings with it will be very helpful for all gardeners in horticulture and landscaping in the future.

5. What are the plans for the future?

We are at a point that is very crucial for the future. We have completed and evaluated the beta phase. We're almost ready to hit the market. We are all very excited and excited to see where the journey is headed. The plan for the future is of course the constant further development of the team, the app and the market.

6. Why would you recommend smart to plan to gardeners in gardening and landscaping?

By using the app, you can save yourself having to carry along all utensils, such as a running bike, measuring tape, plans, pens, etc. This not only relieves the nerves, it also saves a lot of time that can be used for other purposes.

7. What do you love most about your job?

I love the friendly atmosphere in the team. There are always new and varied topics and ideas that are being worked on. Furthermore, it is of course incredibly exciting to set up, develop and successfully shape a small company.

8. What is your favorite plant?

Hard to say... But since I like to travel and vacation on the beach, I spontaneously thought of a palm tree first (laughs).

9. What is the greatest challenge in the smart to plan project?

The greatest challenge was to find one's way into the new territory of gardening and landscaping. Of course, it was also challenging to apply theoretical knowledge, for example in the field of marketing, in a practical way. I really enjoy facing challenges that also promote professional and personal development.

10. Which plant would Marie and Sascha describe you as?

Larix decidua (European larch). It sprouts in the spring. I also came to smart to plan in the spring. “European” stands for our planned expansion of the app in Europe, for which marketing is of course very important.
