We were on a roll . . . increasing, record revenue for the past 4 years running, 10 employees, the latest in testing equipment, and 3 or 4 company trucks depending on who you ask. (Thank you, Mike Motors.)
I was feeling down over the weekend because, after 3.5 years with no changes in personnel, a key industrial hygienist resigned last week. It made for a rough weekend of quiet thought and second-guessing myself.
But you know what? This morning at 05:30, I met 3 employees at the office and helped them get their assigned vehicles loaded up for a day of monitoring and inspections at various locations in LA County.
Finished, I stood there in the parking lot, smiled and quietly waved at each as they left the parking lot. They probably found that a bit weird. But I needed to remind myself of all the GOOD things that have come from our little company. . . . that these good people continue to rely on Ellis almost as much as we rely on them.
