  8. Thank you Tom and Barb! "Where ever you are, and whatever you do, your job is to be as EXCEPTIONAL as possible!" This past weekend I attended the 7th annual roundtable hosted by Tom and Barb Vogel, owners of ACR Pressure Washing Services in Easton, Pennsylvania. Tom and Barb have been hosting these power washing roundtables to promote education and camaraderie in our industry for many years, and I again personally want to thank them for an exceptional job. Tom and Barb truly enjoy a friendship with each and every attendee, whether it was their first time meeting them or not. They welcomed everyone and it felt like I was at a large family cookout. During the roundtable there was laughter and jokes along with serious discussions on the power washing industry. They had so much food that there was no way that you could go away hungry! As I walked around listening to everyone I could tell that they treasured their time at the ACR roundtable. The flow of information between everyone was awesome, and the speakers were fantastic. There were certification programs offered by the PWNA and Sirocco Vacuums. Tom and Barb gave away some awesome gifts, there was a flat surface cleaner donated by Hydrotek, a hose reel donated by Summit Hose Reels, a pump donated by AR pumps, two 5 gallon pails of stain donated by Armstrong Clark Stain and Ready Seal. Tom and Barbara Vogel are exceptional people, and that is how they live their life. They are NOT your average, run of the mill, mediocre, just another power washer supply house. They are Outstanding, Amazing, Astonishing, Exceptional, in everything they do. In the way they look, the way they feel, the way they act, the way they treat others, and in the value they bring to the power washing industry is just incredible. Vvhen someone calls their shop looking for help to repair their equipment, Tom asks, where are you, are you close?, I can come out and help you. (Who does that these days?) So my question to you is: Are yOu like Tom and Barb Vogel? Are you doing all you can do? What is the quality or the value of what you are doing? Is it the best you can do? Is it Outstanding? Amazing? Astonishinq? Exceptional? Is what you are doing, the way you live your life, the interactions you have with others, and the value you bring to our industry and the marketplace you serve, the best that you can possibly bring? The late Earl Nightingale, once said that "Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service." Said another way, the marketplace rewards you in exact proportion to the value you bring to it. Bring a little value, receive a little reward; a lot of value produces a bigger reward. So, if you bring a lot of value to the lives of others, you can expect to be rewarded in exact proportion. We all know that this life is terminal none of us are going to get out of it alive. Every one of us is going to exit at some time, we just don't know when or what the circumstances of our leaving will be. Be like Tom and Barb and create a life that you can be proud of, get out there and be as EXCEPTIONAL as you can be. There are so many people who need that part of you ... and you never know who they are! Be exceptional, be successful. Dan Galvin Successinpowerwashing.com
