How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "My motivation was my family. I wanted to make a better life for them. I have been in the business for 27 years and I have climbed the ladder from being a laborer to equipment operator to foreman. I'm not an inside desk person. I like being outside meeting and talking with people, so the next step was to own my own business."
