It’s been said and written many times that successful people and businesses spend more time and energy looking forward rather than back. Yes, there are lessons to learn from the past, but assessing the future of Stone Building Services can’t be done without acknowledging some recent history. And expressing some gratitude along the way.
The path to success in small business isn’t one for the timid. It’s one that requires preparation, determination, and calculated risk, of course. It also takes barrels of midnight (and early morning) oil, and equal amounts of coffee. To be in the business of literally making my community a more welcoming and beautiful place is an extraordinary opportunity; one for which I’m particularly grateful.
I’m thankful for the welcome I’ve received, and the many introductions, connections, phone calls made, and meetings arranged with some of the most successful businesses and business leaders in Charlotte. Naturally, I’m grateful for the support of family and friends along the way. For us, Stone Building Services is a “family business” in every sense of the word, and one we look forward to being a part of for years to come.
As well, I’m thankful for the encouragement of those risk-takers who went before me. If there’s a ripple effect from all of this, it’s my hope that our success here at Stone Building Services moves others to make their move when the time and reasons are right, and that they’ll inspire others with the passion for what they do as well.
Again, many thanks!
Owner and President, Stone Building Services
