Live streaming opens up the world. Live streaming is currently more a marketing tool for business however with a little bit of focus, knowledge and inspiration, it is entirely safe to say it is only a matter of time until live streaming is at every board meeting, site walk, project review, and business conference room. Why? Once again why would you not? Many of us have been to the board meeting where all homeowners are …

I Love You Because….

Keven Hempel Uncategorized 2 Comments

  Four simple words that made the difference between racing down the path of relationship disaster or moving forward down the long dirt road of marriage. That’s what it took. It was over 3 years ago that I received this wonderful gift from my wife. I’ll never forget opening the present and seeing a blank slate picture frame that said “I love you because…” with a small infinity symbol of love on the bottom right corner. …

So I got home last night, walked in the house and did my daddy thing and gave Mal Mal a hug first (because she always meets me in the driveway) next gave Lanie a hug and a kiss then proceeded in the kitchen for my final big hug and a kiss to the woman that supports us all.

It’s that time again!  You are overloaded with work and the daily tasks of running your business are bogging you down.

Here it is: Subcontractor perspective and point of view: “General Contractors have changed …

The Great Race

Keven Hempel Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Often times I feel like we are in a race. A race against ourselves, a race against time a race against life, a race to raise our children and a race to spend the rest of our lives together always looking at the next phase or the next step and goal.   Every time I feel this way I take a moment to do some introspective thinking. We get together and I ask jenny, how …

What An Adventure!

Those of you that know me are well aware that my mind often travels in places that are quite difficult to envision. I am told I have lofty goals (as well as an occasional…“your crazy.”) I must say after being given this book by a dear friend who so graciously told me with confidence “This is a book for you.” I could not possibly show how excited I was to dive into the pages that awaited …
