Whether you are a homeowner, realtor, or property manager, or the average Joe on the street it is inevitable that mistakes will be made. It is how we handle those mistakes that really matter. In the world of contractors, this means owning up to our faults and moving on in order to ensure more are not made. #SuttleAir in Gilbert, Arizona understands this and has built their reputation on being honest and responsive with their customers.

Being honest with your customers is one of the most important traits for any contractor to possess.

I only put this post together after a situation that had occurred with my team that at the end of the day is my fault, and if I want to be the leader of my team I need to take responsibility when I need to and not let as the saying goes ” let shit role down hill” today was as hard on me as it was a blessing for learning. If anyone actually reads this i hope they can find something in it for them as I got out of putting it together.
