Road Ready – Driving Safety for Your Team

Welcome to the Road Ready series of podcasts brought to you by the Painting Contractors Association and our good friends at BFGoodrich along with their Tradesmen Support Program. On this third and final episode of our Road Ready series, Brandon Sturgis from BFGoodrich returns to talk about driving safety and courtesy that impacts your entire team. A lot of companies put employees in the driver’s seat without any form of assessment or training whatsoever, and this can be detrimental to your company’s reputation, overall safety, and fleet upkeep; and can drastically reduce your profits. Brandon and I discuss ways you can start assessing, training, and keeping your team up to speed on the road and in your work vehicles.

Our DIY “Stained Glass” Window (That Hangs On The Wall)

Our DIY “Stained Glass” Window (That Hangs On The Wall)

We had a totally different post planned for today, but then a super fun/random project fell into our laps on Monday night. We weren’t sure how things would turn out (we were kinda making up a DIY technique as we went along), but to say that we’re pleasantly surprised is a giant understatement. This might be my favorite under $10 project in the history of my life. And it could easily be repeated with any window you find at a thrift store, architectural salvage shop, or even at your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. SAVE ALL THE GORGEOUS OLD WINDOWS, GUYS!

Or you could just wander the streets hoping to be in the right place at the right time – because that is actually how my tale of inheriting this window begins. If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you may have heard me gleefully tell The Fateful Tale Of The Old Diamond Window, wherein I randomly took a longer route on my evening walk and it resulted in me coming down our street about 10 minutes later than I usually do, and at that exact moment I bumped into our neighbors as they were loading an old diamond-paned window into their truck to take it to the dump.
