Courage and Spirit

The world we live in is becoming more and more complicated with international strife, struggling economies and major change around every corner. Still, amidst this uncertainty and confusion, you are doing your part to keep the American dream alive. It takes quite a bit of courage to strike out on your own as a contractor and the payoff is never immediate. Your ambition is not only a huge part of who we are as a country, but is also a great example for future generations.

Crucial Competition

When you’re in the middle of a bidding war for an upcoming project, you may not see competition as a good thing necessarily. But the truth is, there is a need for good competition in today’s market. Competition keeps industries striving to get better and work harder. Without the competition you bring to your specific industry, productivity and efficiency could potentially tank. Obviously it takes more than just your business to keep this competition going, but you play a role in the system. That’s a good thing!


There are more independent contractors in the market today than ever, which means there are more leaders. Many of these were once employees of a large company who, after years of service and dedication, were suddenly let go in a layoff or in the closing of a business. While some of those who lost their jobs went looking for the next employer, many decided to take advantage of the situation and work for themselves. These leaders became their own bosses, developing new leadership skills while finessing old ones. We live in a world that will continue to need good leaders.
