Married into the construction business 20 years ago. I started out helping Steve in the evenings with his bookkeeping and putting flyers on mailboxes. Business grew and eventually quit my job and a family business was created. Now that we have kids, they too help by sticking labels and data entry.
I like that everyday is different. One day I am working on marketing then payables/receivables. I get to see all the great cities while picking up permits. And I love to get to the finished jobs to take pictures.
Even after all these years I still get WOW'd by the the finished project.
