Helping the Community in Different Ways
There are many ways to help a community and for many it can be as simple as donating to a cause that catches their attention. For others, they prefer to be part of a community effort through which they can get to know others that are concerned about the same topics and are willing to do something above and beyond simply contributing to the cause financially. There would be many opportunities like this if one were to look around. For example, some people may choose to give blood, others choose to help bring in new blood donors and others choose actually to gain all the skills that they need to be a direct collector of the blood itself. That is, of course, but one example and there are many others.
Rick Caldwell of Utah is a successful contractor in the world of construction, and he has contributed to a variety of causes over the years. He is highly tied to the community and health and well-being of the people within it. He assisted the cause of the Provo River cleanup with a generous contribution of $8000 to the Boy Scouts of America.
It was through this assistance towards the cleanup effort that he was able to encourage many other fellow local businesses to contribute time and money to some community causes. His influence within the local business community was advantageous in getting the word out about this tremendous community cause that allowed for cleaner waters and areas for wildlife to enjoy.
Fact - Customers Build Businesses
It seems obvious to the casual observer, but it is important to know that at the heart of every business is the customer. There is of course a saying that many are familiar with which goes “The customer is always right”. It is more than just old and faded common sense, making sure that the customer is always satisfied in every situation is what makes businesses great and what makes them grow in the first place. If you look back at some of the greatest successes in history such as Amazon, you will see this same script played out for and over again. The customer is critical and in Amazon’s case they have built a responsive and thorough circle of customer response and satisfaction that has built the company into what it is today. Each customer has the opportunity to review products, to review shipping, to process returns when something is to their satisfaction and many other elements follow this customer first focus.
The same can be said for nearly any industry. If one is in the car business, they must make sure that the customer enjoys the vehicle and the terms under which they bought the vehicle. Honesty and integrity go a long way in any industry and that is especially the case when it comes to something as significant as an automobile purchase. In the world of construction, this is a critical aspect as well. There are many demands of a construction project that call upon outstanding delivery, timeliness in terms of project completion, and the always present elements of the budget. Rick Caldwell of Utah is a successful contractor that has been in the business for many years. He is always focused on delivering the best business product on behalf of his customers, and he has fully embraced this notion of customers building his business.
