What is Bobcats, Bosses and Breakups?
Breakup, spring 2007. I was 22 years old, with lots of potential but no real direction.
I had just finished another winter season of work in Alberta’s oil and gas industry and was looking for something to keep me busy until the snow returned, and the lease roads froze again.
Luckily, I found a job working as a labourer in a flat work concrete business (mostly prep, place and finish of basements, driveways and garage pads).
It couldn’t have been much more than a few weeks after I started working in this industry and I found myself branching off and starting a flat work concrete company with a business partner.
The business operated for two years and ended in a bitter breakup.
If you’re thinking about starting a business or you’re already a seasoned veteran, come along on a journey with me as I look back at these two years of my life and the hard lessons I learned.
We’ll explore three general topics:
- Bobcats: business operation issues
- Bosses: business management issues
- Breakups: business legal and financial issues
Keep an eye out for blog posts and new podcast episodes where I sit down with business professionals to discuss solutions in these unique areas of business.
Who knows, you might be able to avoid some of the same mistakes that I made.
