Time can be your best friend, or NOT.      Several years ago I wrote this blog post (https://activerain.com/blogsview/4620028/think-of-all-the-things-i-can-get-done-now-) about time being spent on things that weren't helping my business move forward. There were numerous time wasters that I would ...

I will watch the Super Bowl, because I'm an American citizen but I'm a Packers fan and that was brutally bad to watch the 49'ers game. However, I'll take a 14-4 season and getting the championship game every year. Better than being a bottom feeder. This is a super easy recipe and has actually won...

Test burn for the fire department?      One of the first inspections I ever did was about 10 years ago. A woman in a very small town south of my home called to tell me the village wanted to condemn her home she was trying to sell. It was vacant but she had a potential buyer, and he would be ther...

Did you remember to tuneup your furnace?  Winter has been pretty rough in Bourbonnais, Illinois so far this year. There are a few things that are worse than a furnace acting up in the middle of the winter, but for the life of me I can't think of any right now. Your furnace needs an annual checku...

     Amazed doesn't begin to cover it. I have 4 children with my wife Mary, and 2 with my ex-wife. I know people can be proud of their kids, as they should be. But there are times I have to just sit back and give thanks for the children my wife and I have, and what amazing young adults they have...

Thankful for my Team.      I have been inspecting homes for new home buyers for about 8 years full time. I was doing inspections part time for a few years before that. I was always a one man shop until July of 2018. I have averaged 2 inspections a day Monday through Friday for the past 2 years. ...
