"All my father knew was hard work but whatever he did he was going to finish. When I started college, I wanted to help my dad out; during my lunch breaks I would email various builders, architects, nurseries, and stone yards to try and generate some unconventional sales. More of a shot in the dark and a rabbit chase but enough interest was created that it sparked my desire to be involved in the Family Business. Such a primitive Business idea, selling rocks, but that's what made it great. I attended Weatherford College for my first 2 years then went on to finish my degree in Entre. Mgmt. at TCU. I had taken notice of the building boom in Parker County, who didn't! Shortly after the year 2000, New Houses were going up everywhere! My dad had a few stone customers but really was at his ceiling for expanding; he had primarily always done contract work (Septic systems, Stone Masonry, Road Construction, etc.). Sales and manage was just not his cup of Tea. My father and I are alike in so many ways but my Dad isn't the Social Animal I am. In Fact, I am more like my mom in being the center of attention so networking was natural for me. After forming relationships with several local customers, they encouraged us to open a retail location. At the age of 21, my wife and I took out a credit card loan for $10,000 and used it for leverage to make a down payment on our current Commercial property. My realtor had given up negotiations because we didn't have the capital or the credit history to get the property financed conventionally, so I called their realtor direct and negotiated a low risk owner finance with a balloon note. They went for it! Then I had to convince a few banks that had turned me down previously, to take some aged equipment my dad had as collateral for a building loan. Now that I think about it, I wouldn't take those risks again in a million years, lol. It was one time in my life that my immaturity and ignorance worked in my favor. No doubt God had a plan for our family. It's not quite the Story of Jerry Jones or Mark Cuban but it's our story.
It has been an awesome experience that few Families experience together. You all have made our business a success and we look forward to the future of Parker County and the rest of North Texas.”
