I was looking around yesterday and could have sworn I was thrown back to an earlier day when I had a bunch of employees. Of course Loretta was here, she was working on year-end stuff along with a professional bookkeeper we use Karen. Karen does 1099’s, payroll and year end stuff getting everything ready for our accountant. Also Erik (my apprentice) was here disassembling our cold saw and getting it all cleaned up and dialed in. Something that’s nice to do from time to time. Bill was assembling bikes and I was building frames. All together there were five of us in the shop pretty much all day. For a so called “one man” shop that’s a lot of people I can’t live without. I don’t know if there is much of point other than to say that while the majority of the time I may be here alone, in no way could I do this all alone. Without a doubt Loretta is the glue that holds this operation together but it takes the whole team to keep everything running smoothly.
