Creating a Window
Hey guys, this is Greg and I will share my story of window installation business that I started 10 long years ago. I have had a lot of experience and most of them are funny and memorable. First of all, it must be said that my work on window installation is not an easy job to do, as we have to understand the wind and its direction in the different seasons, house structure and position and also the interior, space.
My probable customers
Customers will always have their own requisites and sometimes those are not possible or not the best option. At the first stage of my business, I used to fight a lot with the customers and I always tried to win the argument. Then, one day came when a customer said straight into my face- “Who is paying? You or me!” that day I understood my actual position in this business.
One day a customer instructed us to make a big window, but the wall was so small that if we had I have made it big then very left of that wall would have been left and there was also a great chance that the wall may fall down. We said that very clearly, but the customer kept insisting as he thought the big window would make him closer to nature. Regarding my past experience, I did what he said. After 1 week a phone came and the caller said, “Our wall have fallen and one side of our room is now totally open to the field”. I calmly replied, “Sir, then, now you is in the lap of nature”.
Strangely I never felt that competition is lowering my business opportunities. I always felt that the real competition is with myself, with the reputation I am building for myself. Perhaps, this is why many clients that we get are mostly referred by some previous customer who availed our service. I can proudly say that here ‘Greg’ has become a familiar name in window installation services.
Relation with employee
Anyone who has seen window installation will agree that window installation is quite a hard task and requires precision. This is why I really envy employees who are good at their work. The ten years of my successful business has a lot to do with the employees and I always acknowledge that. I think my workers are partners and we must work as a family to get the best result for ourselves.
A future dream
I do have a dream that slowly I will be able to get interior decoration also. I am also taking preparation for that, hopefully, it will be more successful than the current on
