Hehe, got me a few "kills" that way to with my my saab when real wheel drive cars that really would have the upper hand do not have the driver to match.... Of course my 300hp do help.....
Seriously, what kind of construction engineering are you in? I am too a civil engineer in a small business. We are so small that I sometimes are required to put on my blues and the hard hat, but we do work world wide except the US and Canada (with the exeption of Seattle King Dome (rip) and CN-Tower). We are serious on everything Except dress code. Heck I am well paid, but I can walk around in a burka if I want to, but maybe not in front of customers....
Happy New Years from Stockholm!
I'm actually the money guy for the business. I can't take the title CFO, I don't have the right degree, but think along that line. It builds custom homes, which the market is still ok for, plus small commercial, like strip malls and club houses and rec areas for large track builders. Also has a swimming pool and hot tub install division which is as busy as it can be right now. People that are stuck in their houses are adding pools and in ground spa's to add to the value of the house now.
The owner is a 72 year old ex Marine from Korea days. He's real strict on employee appearances.
The money is ok. The opportunity is there for me to buy this business from him in 3-5 years. There is no one to take over the company, only one daughter and she wants nothing to do with it. He will sell it in the next 5 years definately maybe 3 and has indicated that I would be able to buy it if I want it. I've known him for 3 years now and a friend of mine that introduced us has know him for 15 years. He's a man of his word.
If I'm the guy running it as Operations Manager, it will be real easy to present a business plan to a bank and obtain financing for the purchase.
I'll change the dress code when it's mine. LOL. The white dress shirts definately need a tie.
HAPP NEW YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
