Throughout these 10 years of running the dumpster rental business, I had my father beside me the whole time. Without him, I probably would not even start the business. Back then I had no job and no money, my dad invested all the money he had into in and now after 10 years running it together I have to do it all by myself because he decided to retire. His time has come to enjoy the rest of his life, probably going on fishing trips not worrying about the company.
I am now a grown man who is more than capable of running the business alone. These past 10 years thought me a lot of things and I am confident going into this alone. I would have help from my trusted employees of course, but having my dad around is something that nobody can replace.
Keeping the quality
With my father gone I heard from a lot of people saying they are scared that the quality of our services might decrease, mostly from long-time customers who I befriended over the years. First that was a shock to me but later on, I realized that I need to prove myself. That I am capable of doing this job without my father as good as before. So after hearing some people’s concerns I wanted to change something to make our customers happy again.
I had to ask someone for an advice and who better to ask than my father. After a brief talk with him, I got some ideas how to make the business better. As said earlier we are a growing and expanding company we have an open mind. Those ideas from my dad helped the company and made everyone satisfied.
