Hello Fellow Racers,
This will be my last post as Jim has asked us to say a farewell to the readers as the Great American Limo Race comes to a close. I have enjoyed this time as a racer and I must say the best part has been the interaction with Jim, Georgia and Ric. You folks have added so much to my business with your words of wisdom and the sharing of tough issues. I also have learned a lot from the readers who have connected with me to ask me questions and comment on my posts.
I started out by buying a small company’s client list and purchasing five older vehicles on July 23, 2008. Exactly three years later, on July 23, 2011, we have eight vehicles with all low miles and the newest of features. We have grown our business during that time by 37%. The first two years were the hardest, but now we feel like our reputation for quality and fair priced service has finally become known. The New England region is still struggling with economic growth, but the strong will survive. This industry takes time to understand if you can understand it at all. The wonderful thing about being a limousine operator is the support you get from other operators. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of you who have helped me to get to this level and now to move on to even bigger things.
I say a special thank you to Jim Luff, Ric Garza, Carrie Peele, Georgieanna and Brion Svenson, Tina Benson, Arthur Messina, and the NELA members who are always there to help. And thanks to the industry for helping a woman-owned business get it done!
I hope to see you all in Vegas!!!
