Since I personally own an island business, I also recognize the value of supporting other businesses on the islands. And as the season draws to a close and people begin to leave for the summer we are always reminded that many of us are preparing for less revenue in the coming months. Air conditioning is different, because the summer is when people tend to need us the most and I’m always grateful for the support from my fellow islanders who think of me when they need a job done. So, I think that one of the best ways to help to consider your neighbors by trying to do as much local business to business services. We recently completed a job for Andy Johnson of Sanibel Surveys, changing out their – prepare for it – 20 year old system! When I had my pool put in a little while ago, I used Andy’s surveying service and in turn, Andy thought of me when he needed a new system. I definitely can’t speak for everyone, but it’s definitely a good feeling, knowing that we have this kind of support from fellow business owners.
As always, thanks for reading,
