Lots of pencils. Drawings. Unopened mail. Invoices never sent. Collections never pursued. No systems or procedures in place.
Just the art.
Just the art of making and repairing all types of roofs, and fabricating/hanging aluminum awnings. And, yes. They were all customized; works of art. Yet, the business acumen was missing. Big time.
I’m pretty sure I became a property manager to show him how that part is done.
It is forever mine then, to remember and embrace the art of it.
