Its been a while since I've revisited some suggestions for making businesses better. I may have touched on this in the past, but think its worth revisiting. Last week i was in Dallas for a peer group meeting and tour a great landscape company. I made the decision to fly in a day earlier, email John from Eagle Landscape and go grab a great steak. It's been probably 5 years since I've seen John. I had a great Texas meal and we caught up for a few hours. I'm amazed at how fast that Dallas market is growing and how busy everyone is. Yesterday, I had lunch with the VP of our local bank. I've banked with the same bank for 20 years. A little hometown bank, great relationship, and just openly talked with him about our plans over then next few years. Including our new building which is back on track for fall 2019. He openly gave me some advice on some things and let me know they were there to help in anyway they could. Thanking us for being great customers and running a model business. Bottom line, stay connected. Have lunch with peers, colleagues, friends, etc. Do what you can do to learn more and grow. Truck #8 is finishing up, most of the tools will go on shortly. Turned out really sharp, I'll post some pics later. We did some new things with the box behind the cab. Have a great Christmas everyone.
