Speaking of reputation, how do you think reputation affects business? We’ve been here since the eighties. A lot of our business comes from word of mouth after being here for so long. We’ve made a lot of connections throughout the community. And so we’ve built up a reputation. It’s a third-generation family business. We do everything from the design to the concept, all the way through the installation. It’s small enough to provide the caring, personalized service our customers have been kind enough to credit us.
Do you think networking is important? Networking is one of those things that you get out of it what you put into it. What’s the expression for what networking is? “It’s a bunch of white-collar guys with some blue-collar guys sprinkled in.” But in all seriousness, I think it’s always important to build relationships as a business owner. Even being here for years, the trust comes through time and working together. We are also members of the Business Networking International (BNI) Elite Referral Connectors chapter, which has helped increase business through referrals.
