Speaker 1: (00:01)
This is the carpet DM podcast. I’m your host, Nathan Sabrina’s and I’m here today with destiny Sabrina’s and she is actually a unwilling participant in our podcasting series today. She, she unfortunately made the poor life choice of not specifically asking who was going to pick her up from her work. And so instead of her mother getting the chance to come pick her up, her father came to pick her up and so now she’s trapped in a car and she’s like, I hopefully now I know how far away our home is. So this can’t be that long of a podcast because he eventually is going to have to get home where I can just open the door and run out as fast as possible. But while we’ve got her here, a captive audience listening to wanting to know what is it that she might know, we’re going to go back and talk about something she might be able to help with.

When we decided to re actually engage originally when we started, we talked in the last podcast about how we started complete carpet as carpet here installation. So we had unmarked white bands. The very first one was actually this conversion van is a green band. I had taught, taken all this stuff out so I could haul carpet in and then I got a trailer. And so we weren’t thinking about aesthetics, we weren’t thinking about what we look like cause we were just doing a government contract and nobody cared what we looked like. And honestly the less flashy I looked, the safer I was cause I didn’t want people knowing I had thousands of dollars a carpet sitting in the van in case we, somebody wanted to steal of our equipment or all of our tools. And so, but when we switched over, we wanted to become more residential. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (01:23)
People did care that they didn’t want us driving up in an unmarked white van and seem a little sketchy. So we decided to wrap the van and make it look really professional and nice. And we used an M, we just had to go through a lot of images to figure out what is it we want to do. And I great customers that have, you should use your wife or your children on the side of your vans that if you put someone else’s wife or someone else’s child on the side of the van, you’ve got to go out and get in that band every day and you’re gonna be staring at either someone else’s wife or someone else’s baby. Every time you get in your bed said much better. You use your own children so that every time you see on the side of her van, the reason you’re doing this, why are you doing this?

Either for your wife or your kids or for your family. And so here we’ve got destiny with us. Say, uh, what was it like? Because at the time you were little, you, you weren’t, you weren’t the amazing 17 year old. You are now at the time, I believe you were five or six years old when we did our first little photo shoot in our, it was actually just there in our living room, if I remember right. And we had you just do hundreds of pictures to try to find one that we thought would look good. What was that experience like from your perspective? Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 2: (02:24)
I actually remember being in the, um, being in the living room and having you take my picture a bunch of times and um, just how I should sit and how I should smile and things like that. And I think for the first couple of years I thought it was really cool. But then after that I was really embarrassed. I never told anyone, uh, especially none of my school friends. And, uh, now it’s sort of a talking point, something to laugh at that I can use sort of as an anecdote. And a lot of people don’t actually me. Um, so instead of being embarrassing now, it’s almost kind of funny. Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed Carpet Cleaner.
Speaker 1: (03:05)
I do remember when you were first, uh, going there because I knew my dad had put me on the side of a van. I would be mortified if he came to my school to pick me up. And so I just did not go to pick you up at the first six months, which was great for me because I didn’t have to drive all the way across town. Cause at the time you were going to school all the way across town. It was like a 30 minute drive to get over to where the school was at and then drive all it back. And one of the times I remember you came to me, you asked me if I would mind picking you up for the band in the new van one time. And I thought really he wanted to be picked up in the new van with your face on the side. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (03:37)
This seems to be like it would be really embarrassing and you, and you looked at me and said dad, but I do want you to do it because I told them my friends, I’m on the side of the van and they don’t believe me. And so I went by to pick you up. And I think that was also the last time you asked me to come pick you up a side of the van again cause he realized that now kids may or may not. Now that they know that you really are on the side of the band, did you get any pushback from any of your school friends at the time when they realized you really were on the side of a van or what was the uh, w as far as embarrassment or pro proudness? What was it like at that time? Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed Carpet Cleaner.
Speaker 2: (04:07)
Um, I think there was a time whenever everyone, a lot of my friends made fun of me for it. But uh, and that’s when I tried to keep it hidden. Uh, cause I felt cause I, I guess they thought it was really dorky. Um, and really weird. And that’s around the time whenever I actually looked like the person on the fan. Um, but then once I got older, um, around the time, by the time I was like maybe 10 and up, people would notice me and be like, Hey, I’ve got your magnet on my fridge. I think, but they wouldn’t make fun of me. They’d just be like, I think that’s you. Is it? It’d be like, yeah. And then I’d explain it and even one of my best friends, uh, caught me in it and she kind of made fun of me. But you know, she’s my best friend so. Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (04:51)
Well and I think at that age that’s what pretty much everyone does. They want to find something that they can engage with their friends about too. You know, teasing is the way of making friends almost. It’s like you see the pretty girl and you pull her hair. Why could you just kind of want her attention? You’re trying to come up with something to talk about. Cause at that time I remember uh, with Lexi and Logan and I still do the some now, but I would call them on a regular basis cause I called them once and tried to talk to them on the phone and I got, yeah huh, yes. I got all these one word answer from when I realized they are terrible at talking on the phone. And as a parent I realized that’s my fault because I haven’t spent enough time talking on the phone with him. Did you do anything through that time or that space that you felt like this helped develop some of your communication skills that you’re dealing with your classmates and your friends who are in that same vein where they feel like, well, if I all, the way I know to get someone’s attention is to tease them. Have you had any cool stories of connections with your classmates? Tulsa’s highest and most reviewed Carpet Cleaner.
Speaker 2: (05:47)
Um, well I think the only thing I can say is that I, over a very long course of time I’ve realized that if I make fun of myself first, they’ll just think it’s really funny and notice it and be like, Oh yeah, that’s funny. Instead of making fun of me for it. Um, and so if I bring it up, like I said as an anecdote, sometimes I’ll just tell people like if it, if it comes up, I don’t just randomly tell people, but like if it’s somehow comes up in a conversation, sometimes I’ll just tell people as an anecdote. And it’s just something funny. Now. So I think it helps me realize that, uh, some things are, um, I can’t change, so why not make the best out of it? Carpet Cleaner Tulsa since 1998.
Speaker 1: (06:34)
Oh, that’s such good advice, especially on a business side that sometimes, and that’s really what we’ve talked about in the last three or four episodes, was that, um, it’s, it’s Carpe diem or we call it carpet diem. Seize your clean today. But Carpe diem is seize your seize the day. You need to seize whatever you can to seize the, the place that you’re at. Sometimes you get a choice about what you’re going to do, but a lot of times the choice is not in. What you’re going to do is in how you’re going to respond. Like you may or may not have any influence over what happens to you in the day, but you do have 100% influence over whether today do you choose happy or do you choose sad? Do you look to be a pessimist or you do look to be an optimist because the cloudy, as we talked about the last podcast, the cloudy day could be this dry, drowsy, weary ER type of a thing.

Or it also could be a time where you say, you know, I’m going to get a lot of rest today. It’s going easy to sleep today. Or, man, I don’t even need a rain machine to make Peter pattern noises on the glass. I can just sit next to glass and hear the pitter-patter or, man, I know the grass is going to be really green tomorrow because it rains so much today. So look out and find, say today’s just going to be the day it’s going to be. How can I enjoy it? What’s what is in today that I can get to enjoy carpet DMCs or clean today?
