In a few days I will be opening up a new blog. About a week ago I met an amazing person, Coleman Tatum. You see I needed a tree taken down at one of my rental properties. Lightning had struck it and it was in danger of falling on my house. I had put it off for a while because I knew it would be expensive. Finally I called Tatum Tree Care and Removal company.
I reluctantly decided to hire Coleman and his crew. Something changed though when I got out to the job site and saw that he was so much more than a guy and a chainsaw. There was a big crew, a bobcat, a dump truck, and lots of workers. I found out that Coleman is one of the only tree service experts in this area that actually has insurance. If I had hired one of those other companies and someone got hurt I could have gotten sued!
I found out that Coleman actually has a degree in horticulture and over 25 years if experience in the tree removal business. At the end of the day I felt like he gave me an amazing deal. I am so glad that I hired a professional outfit instead of those other guys.
When it comes to hiring someone to do a job you need to not just look at price, but instead look at the job they are going to do for you. In business it is so easy to look at the bottom line and never look at who you hiring and the quality of the work that is being done. When you are looking to hire someone for your business here are three things you should look for:
Experience in the field.
Ability to do the job right.
Coverage in case of an accident.
If you keep these things in mind you will be able to hire people in your business to complete jobs that you can't or won't be able to do. If you don't follow these tips you might get a cheaper price but in the long run you will pay for it. Good business people know that it is worth it to pay to get the job done right the first time. Plus as an added bonus I negotiated a deal with this business owner to do some work for him as well, so in the long run we both will win.
