I went to the mini convention all days.
I met some awesome people and even got a couple of hugs and a kiss from Nick…for some reason when it was happening I think he called me Fredo?
Great people and great time and was put on without a hitch and ran smoother than a babies bottom.
From the top down Nachi puts a ton of effort in the education of the inspector and its members.
I just want to share a couple of stories and to tell you and let you decide if chapters are worth it.
There is a guy named Bruce Graham and I had the priviledge of meeting this quiet, kind guy about a year ago. He looked tired back then, a little gruff, and just seemed to be stressed. You should see the guy now! Business is doing very well, he had some pep to his step and just looked a ton better. I asked how his business was doing and with a huge smile he didn’t even have to answer, but confidently said he was doing well with a nice stream of inspections.
When it came time to give for legislative affairs he was the first to reach in his pocket and remove a nice crisp $100 bill and throw it in the hat. Just the kind of guy he is and I am honored to be his friend and also very happy the inspection business has a taken a turn for the better and his dilligence has paid off. Congrats Bruce!
Story #2 - There is a guy out of West Palm named Preston Halstead. This gentleman came to a meeting and he listens well and is very quiet kind person. He listened to John Shishilla tell people about Wind Mitigation Inspections and a way to fill in your dead time with these. Well here is a relatively new guy that now “fills” in his dead time with about $5,000 a month in doing wind mits while growing an inspection business to a multi inspector firm.
These stories are the result of a person starting a chapter, having a handle on it, having a passion for it, and with a willingness to give to others without asking for anything in return. For that, I am blessed to have John and Michelle Shishilla not only as my board members of my chapter, but to also call them friends.
These are just 2 of numerous stories I could tell you…just wanted to share
