Where ever you are, and whatever you do, your job is to be as
EXCEPTIONAL as possible!
This past weekend I attended a roundtable hosted by Tom and Barbara Vogel, owners of ACR Pressure Washing Services in Easton, Pennsylvania. . The Vogel’s have been hosting these power washing roundtables to promote education and camaraderie in our industry for many years, and I personally want to thank them for an exceptional job.
I an not just saying that because they let me be the first speaker and set the pace for all those who followed, I honstly can say they did an exception job.
The Vogel’s truly enjoy a friendship with each and every attendee, whether it was their first time meeting them or not. During the roundtable there was laughter and jokes along with serious discussions on the power washing industry. They also had a food table spread that would make any caterer jealous!!
As I walked around listening to everyone I could tell that they treasured their time at the ACR roundtable. The flow of information between everyone was awesome, and the speakers were the icing on the cake. And speaking of cake, which was delicious, I would like to wish Barbara a happy birthday and may you have many more.
Tom and Barbara Vogel are exceptional people, and that is how they live their life. They are NOT your average, run of the mill, mediocre, just another power washer supply house. They are Outstanding, Amazing, Astonishing, Exceptional, in everything they do. In the way they look, the way they feel, the way they act, the way they treat others, and in the value they bring to the power washing industry is just incredible.
So my question to you is: Can you be like Tom and Barbara Vogel? Are you doing all you can do? What is the quality or the value of what you are doing? Is it the best you can do? Is it Exceptional? Amazing? Astonishing? Is what you are doing, the way you live your life, the interactions you have with others, and the value you bring to the marketplace you serve, the best that you can possibly bring?
The late Earl Nightingale, once said that “Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.” Said another way, the marketplace rewards you in exact proportion to the value you bring to it. Bring a little value, receive a little reward; a lot of value produces a bigger reward. So, if you bring a lot of value to the lives of others, you can expect to be rewarded in exact proportion.
We all know that this life is terminal none of us are going to get out of it alive. Every one of us is going to exit at some time, we just don’t know when or what the circumstances of our leaving will be.
I have built my company, East Coast Powerwashing, truly believing that you have to use the best product and do the best job because anything other than that is doing a total disservice to my customers, my business and my family.
Create a life that you can be proud of, get out there and be as EXCEPTIONAL as you can be. There are so many people who need that part of you… and you never know who they are!
