I have always been very organized and always ran my business to look professional. I bring that and my business sense here to this new business, but I also learned about managing people, how to treat them and motivate them so they feel like part of a team and that they make a difference.
I also enjoy the challenge of growing a business and making it run more efficiently. What I accomplish I will pass on to my son Jon.
Why did I start this venture? I took my hobby and mechanical skills and started something I enjoy doing. There are so many dead end jobs out there and I had my share of them. Job security? There isn't any job security any more so why not take a chance and enjoy the ride?
