Work 14-hour days ala a bank teller w/ No cell phones out or distractions allowed, as every key stroke matter in dollars & cents, prize risk, data input and in software code, without lunch, breaks, rarely are able to schedule appointments, while never noticing where the time went on the clock. As they say Time flies when you are having fun.
In an atypical day we will get correspondences from a Gold Medal winning Olympian para-athlete - 3 Harley-Davidson dealerships – Governor of Montana – Sammy Hagars manager – Fish n Game of Alaska – San Antonio Spurs – Microsoft – Suicide Help Line - ALL BEFORE LUNCH.

We cut in ½ Kevin Bacon’s 6 degrees to 3 degrees of separation from every industry and shaker & mover. Yet we are a small mom & pop type of business with low margins. Those lifelong friends think you can still just drop everything & anything all the time because you own your own biz.
