In business, you will never know where the next big opportunity is for you unless you put yourself in play. What do I mean by that? I mean you got to get into this game we call business and let it be known you exist. Then as more people become aware of you, more opportunities will present themselves.

Let's take Bill Wiggam Jr. for example. The business his grandfather started that focused on welding now focuses more on the sale and service of lawn care equipment!

Do you find that you would be open to other opportunities if they presented themselves?

Bill Wiggam Jr. - When Bill Wiggam Jr.’s grandfather founded Carmel Welding and Supply Company in 1948, the business focused on welding, blacksmithing and sharpening farm equipment.

Today, the company’s core business is the sales and service of professional and residential lawn-care equipment, although it still fabricates, welds and repairs metals. Carmel Welding and Supply is the city’s oldest business, said Wiggam, the company’s vice president, who plans for it to continue to thrive.

Oh that is very interesting! What will you be doing to market that service?

Will you charge for admission onto the site or how will that work?
