I'm So Proud of Him!

Last August we walked out in complete faith to have Chris open his own shop. When I say complete faith I mean COMPLETE FAITH! We didn't have a lot of money and we did not have a building but we did have faith and we knew this is what God was calling us to do. Right away my dad offered to let us rent his barn so that was a big detail we were able to check off the list.

Chris has been in the car business for a very long time and he was so tired of how the system worked, pushy sales, techs with little knowledge doing high paying jobs in places you pay thinking your getting a quality technician. He was tired of the way techs get paid because that usually means poor work quality (not always but a lot of times) because the faster the tech gets the job done the better he gets paid.

Chris had wanted for so long a place that he could be honest with people. Chris wanted a place where people would get quality work from a very experienced technician. Chris wanted a place with low overhead so people could afford to bring their cars to him.

I can't say it has been easy, some weeks the bills get paid by prayer alone but we know God has our back so they will get paid.

We have been very, very careful about buying things so that we don't get into trouble. One thing we have put off is buying a lift because they are not cheap. Chris has been working so hard doing it the old fashion way with jack stands and it has not been easy and it takes a lot of extra time. After 9 very long months of using jack stands Chris finally got a working lift today!

I am so very proud of my amazing husband and am so blessed to to have the most caring, smart, not to mention cute, ASE Master Certified technician there is.

Hey Chris, I AM PROUD OF YOU!!!

You should be proud - what a great accomplishment! God is clearly honoring Chris' hard work and his desire to do what is right. GO CHRIS!

That's great news. It must feel like such an accomplishment, I am glad that it is working out. I wish there were more guys like him, "honest" because its easy to feel like you're being taken for a ride when you don't know the first thing about cars! xx
