    Owner/Operator?
    President?


    I need some help deciding what my title should be on my business card that says that I am the owner and I do the work. Thanks in advance!

    President makes it sound like a large, impersonal corporation, which I doubt you want to be known as that. Owner/Operator is closer to the facts and sounds like you're an actual human being. my $.02

    Yes I agree...."Working Owner" speaks volumes to some. Helps reassure the idea that you are directly involved on the project. I know some small town locals in my area who scoff at the idea that you are there only to "sell" them the job. Later, "your guys" didn't have the same communication, standards, appearance ....whatever the case may be. At times, I have been asked " Are you going to be doing the work"....or "will you be here"? In a time when you have no control over material, product and fuel increases, the only thing you can directly control is the relationship with your clients. Personally, I would reserve "Pres" status until the shoe fits.....just my 2 cents!
