I have always loved what I do. I think that is why it made sense for me to start my own business. I can honestly say that the best part of my job is helping people. When it comes to unwanted water in someone’s home or property, it is a scary time for them. This is a violation to their investment and property and if you don’t know what to do, it can be very stressful. Knowing what to do in those moments, being able to reassure a home or property owner on next steps and seeing the trust and relief in their eyes is powerful.

I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love each and every day. My passion and knowledge for the industry arms me with confidence. My desire to help people is fulfilled each time I step onto a job site. The world of business and networking is a wonderful thing. We all have our areas of expertise that really allow us to shine. But, we can’t be good at everything or know everything. We need other experts to reassure us and help us in situations that are very foreign to us. Situations that our businesses, success and lives often times depend on.

So, do what you love. If you don’t know how to do something, find someone that does…and that loves what they do. Help someone that needs help. Life is fun and funny and is way too short to wish away the work week. So enjoy life, go dance in the rain and above all…do what you love.
