It's pretty cool to hear positive remarks about your work. You don't get that pleasure everyday in Corporate America.
I like the seasonal aspect of our service. We work hard for 9 1/2 months and then take a couple of months off to re-charge and enjoy some traveling.
I love that my office is behind a windshield. I am on the road most of the day going to new places and meeting new people. I enjoy the transformation that takes place on a daily basis. It still is a lot of fun to watch those ugly, gray decks and fences go from nasty to beautiful. It’s much more satisfying than pushing paperwork around an office! I also enjoy working with the young men who are employed here. It’s nice to give these guys a chance to prove themselves and work up the career ladder either here or go on to other careers.
Regarding the franchise system, we enjoy not being another number. We feel the franchisor has a personal interest in our success. Regarding the business, we enjoy the freedom that being in business for yourself brings. We can schedule ourselves time off relatively easy and our crews continue to work while we are vacationing. Regarding the system-the products and process are tried and proven and we are proud of what the finished product/service looks like.
