One, eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero, nine. Three. A part of the reason for starting complete carpet was that I was going into college and I wanted to be able to take care of my own finances and bills to get everything taken care of.

[00:48] In that aspect. I also wanted to build a computer and to buy a Jeep Cherokee at an 88 dark blue jeep cherokee that was really interested in getting. And so the quickest, best way to generate funds, I think anytime is that you just go around and start asking everybody if there’s anything that they need done that you can help them with. And so one conversation led to another, as I slowly did different jobs for different people taking my current set of skills that I had developed. I had started at the age of five of them the first time I got to install carpet with my father in our own home. And obviously as a five year old, there’s not a whole lot you can do. But I definitely spent the uh, the majority of the time just following around asking him why he was doing all the different things that he did. carpet cleaning Tulsa

[01:29] Now he didn’t install carpet on a regular basis but to save money. And we were in a pinch. He installed the carpet in our own house because my mother was just about to give birth to my little sister. And um, so we need to have new carpet in the home quickly before she can move in because I’m not exactly sure why they decided to buy a move into a new home the week that she was going to give birth. But that was how the dice fell for that particular situation. A as a father now I could not imagine my wife letting me move from one house to another while she was in her ninth month of pregnancy. But here we are all night long. My Dad and I stayed up. I’m installing carpet. I’m sure he spent probably could have done it in the same day of installing carpet, but you have a five year old or a four year old walking around following you, asking you how do you do that and how does this work?

[02:13] It probably ended up taking them all night long as he tried to answer all the questions and keep working at the same time. But I remember that night just set, you know, deeply into my mind as far as the interest of how this all goes together. How do you make the two pieces of carpet, company, other, how does the pad get cut and set in the right places? Which way? Which direction should the tack Strip be facing? How do you get it so that it’s not wrinkly? How do you cut it so that you don’t cut your fingers? How do you glue it? How do you connect it on the sides? How do you, how do you stretch it so that it stays tight at all times? Uh, how do you get it to move around? How do you get to laeve properly in the clauses?

[02:46] All, you know, all the little things that just fascinated me with the process and went on to do many other different businesses. I was always interested with the way the business worked and finding something that you could do. And then I tried everything. I try to carpet cleaning or as that I also had a lawn cleaning business. carpet cleaning Tulsa I had a, a videography business. They had a, um, a computer business and eventually I went back and said, you know, what, I’ve got the most experience doing, dealing with carpet and I can have people that are interested in getting their carpets taken care of. And so that’s really where the main thrust of all of my connections ended up being. And so that’s why I started a carpet cleaning and repair a business carpet cleaning Tulsa. It is in our fiber and we have been able to use that experience going forward for the last 20 years to build a service, our customers.

[03:32] And so, um, to get that jeep, to get that computer built, which I did get both those two things done. I built up a customer base and connected with people who were excited to have somebody who is willing to do all of the work that nobody else was willing to do. carpet cleaning Tulsa And sometimes I think in a, in business, and I think this applies to everyone in to every different industry and every different places that you need to be willing to do the work that other people are not willing to work or to do. If you want to try to grow or expand or exceed, um, in your life, um, whether that be a, a pastor, whether it be a mother, whether it’d be a father, whether that be a, uh, an employee, whether that be a manager you need to get out there and make sure that you’re setting the example of getting stuff done because there’s always somebody out there who’s going to get something done.

[04:18] Um, and you could be that person, whereas some other people may be able to take that role or take that spot away from you because they’re going to be willing to work harder or faster than you are. Carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. Number one customer I was talking with, it was during around. Oh seven when the markets were crashing and things, uh, in the construction industry, just screeched to a complete halt. I had lots of customers who just, you know, their entire industry just dried up overnight and there’s just nothing for a whole year or all the funding just disappeared because banks didn’t have the money. People who had lines of credit got their credit pulled. And so just, you know, all of that whole industry, just streets, I mean literally go from 200 jobs a year or two, not even one job in the next year.

[05:00] And so I was talking with one of our customers and he said, you know what? I said, so how are you going to deal with this? What do you say? And he said, you know, I will be just fine. I said, how can you say that? I mean, you gotta you gotta look at all those dots going on. And he said, you know what? carpet cleaning Tulsa He goes, Nathan, no matter what it is, what’s going on out there, somebody somewhere needs something done. And he says, all I have to do is just walk down the street and keep knocking on enough doors until I find somebody who still needs something done. He said, there’s always somebody out there who’s got something that they don’t know how to do and that I can find a way to do for them. And he said, and that really, really struck me because of his confidence and his, um, you know, it just wasn’t going to phase him.

[05:35] This wasn’t going to freak them out, that he was prepared in advance. That, you know, what I worse comes to worse, I can just go along and find somebody somewhere who needs me to do something for them. And I think that that’s, that stick to it. If that’s I figure something out attitude that I wanted to instill into my business. Also, we are complete carpet, carpet cleaning. Tulsa is our fiber.
