  • Business owners-personality poll

    I've been noticing a trend with business owners I meet and have a theory on their personality type. Which one describes you? I know I'm at 2 sides of the spectrum so don't nuke it and just pick what you think describes you better. I did give a third option for those charming, good looking, charismatic, intelligent types. LOL 3rd option is for those who can't make up their mind.

        Since I'm not a business owner yet, I was going to vote for what my boss is like. I have to vote 'not like either'.

        He's an old school master plumber, laid back and very joking. Like's to joke around and laugh. Doesn't really call you out on job's late unless it's needed. YET, somewhat-very cheap.

          OK, straight answer.
          I do get into multitask mode, where I'll have 2 estimates in front of me, bouncing between this forum, TV and my wife asking me to remember to pick up our ten year old from school tomorrow.
          Next afternoon, phone rings...customer is DELIGHTED with my estimate for a two bath remodel for $1200...other customer beeps in on call waiting to ask why in the world a simple water heater woukld cost $8K...as the doorbell rings and an unhappy cop has the ten year old.
          It then occurs to me that I can't remember what the outcome was on last nights episode of E.R.

          I'm kidding...I hope.
          I tend to bounce between the two.

            I have found over the years, that most of the aggravation and stress involved in the contracting trades can be alleviated by the imbibation of copious quantites of grain spirits. In the right quantities these medicinal spirits tend to level one out and promote a sense of calm and well being.
