Looking up...

Real Estate Agent with Wainwright & Co. Realtors

It's been a while since I've blogged, but I have a good reason.  Any of you who have read my previous posts know that I am a part-timer with a full time job.  At my other job, things are really picking up!!

In my other life, I build utility trucks (the ones that work on power lines).  The 4th quarter of this year has seen a steady increase in orders, and the 1st quarter of 2011 is looking even stronger!  We are projected to have a 7% growth in that time, so needless to say, I've been working a good bit of overtime.  Not complaining, because it sure helps pay the bills.

Things are looking so good in fact, that we will be adding 100 new employees in the next month.  Our industry tends to show the trend for the entire economy since we have a lot of customers who also specialize in new constructions.

So, for all of those out there who are looking for more signs of strength in the economy, I hope this will help brighten up your outlook on the future.

Thanks again for giving me the forum.  Have a great night!!

Way cool! My husband is in landscape contracting in DC and his business has been steadily growing. He has to work harder for it and be more competitive, (and he is embracing social media too), but it is paying off!
