Success does indeed happen slowly.
Between Viking Sports, MyBike, and knocking on doors, I’ve worked with thousands of people. During the time, someone smarter than me pointed out that people fall into three categories- high maintenance, low maintenance, and no maintenance. Let’s go through them… High Maintenance– This is the person who needs supervision. They are a question asker, theyContinue reading “Being No Maintenance”
Finally we were able to start the process of turning this bare earth into something somewhat decent. First we tackled the patio. I’ve done paver patios in the past and almost every time I have the same thought process: This will be great! What was I thinking I should stop now and pay someone IContinue reading “The Patio Oasis- Before and After”

Thankfully I was proven wrong when we started selling bikes. Lots of bikes. Selling all of these bikes created aContinue reading “All That Cardboard”
Building a team is such a hard thing to do. It took me years to get good at this skill. When I did door to door sales, the only way to get out of the “field” (the actual pounding the pavement to knock on doors) was to develop a team of sales people to sellContinue reading “Team Building is Hard”
