Almost 10 years to the day our “10 year plan” is complete. We built what I expect to be our final shop behind our home in the beautiful historic Bon Ton neighborhood, smack dab in the middle of Bozeman. We have a 15 foot commute and best off all the shop doors open into the back yard which Loretta has beautifully landscaped, including flower beds and a water feature. The yard is fenced and our dogs are free to play all day long. It’s just as we imagined it. We’ve simplified our lives and are spending our days doing what we love in a place we are very comfortable.
So now looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. The journey has taught us a lot. We like to kid we have a masters in business, except it cost a lot more than if we had earned it from a university. Many lessons were fun and many pretty harsh, but in the end, lessons none the less and very valuable. We’ve also met and made friends with many great people who still bring value to our lives. So all in all, you can never imagine how things will unfold, but doing what is right and being positive will always serve you well, it has us. We’d like to thank all the wonderful customers, vendors, employees, friends and family that have supported us over the years.
