Reply To: Dr. Vinyls Working Together
Techs and Owners,
I am not sure why, but this year has brought work my way which in many cases I have never done, and for that matter, have never even been asked to do. For the most part I like to stick with what I know, but to be honest I got into the Upholstery side of our business because I was looking to challenge myself. I would like to claim that I continue to learn knew things and involve myself in more complicated work to keep up the challenge. That, however, really wouldn’t be the whole truth. The reason why I involve myself in more complex upholstery work is due to the great support I get from other Dr. Vinyl’s that have done similar work and encourage me to try it. Even if the others haven’t had experience with the exact scope of work I am currently looking at, they give me the confidence to move forward into the unknown.
It is amazing what you can do if you just try. Putting your mind to a task is not just challenging, it is also rewarding. In an old Anthony Hopkins/ Alex Baldwin movie
(The Edge) I remember one of the memorable lines was “What one man can do, another can do!” For that matter, for the ladies out there… a woman can probably do it even better.
Get out their and try. I think you will be surprised or amazed or even shocked at what you can do, but most of all I think you be proud and rewarded for your efforts.
