Along with the trucking industry, the towing and recovery industry is well aware of the shortage of qualified drivers. At the Wisconsin Towing Association’s annual meeting in June, the subject of autonomous vehicles was a hot topic.  Are driverless trucks the answer to the shortage? […]



Working on Another Holiday

Jun 29th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Like many professions, the towing and recovery industry doesn’t get a day off for celebrating a holiday. When you’re on call you miss a lot of events. It is almost a given that when you just sit down for dinner or are heading out the […]



Walk a Mile in My Boots

Jun 22nd, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Sometimes when someone doesn’t understand where you’re coming from and begins to criticize you, don’t you want to tell them to “walk a mile in my shoes” — or in the towing and recovery industry — walk a mile in my boots? Take this scenario […]



Dress for Success

The band ZZ Top wrote a song titled “Sharp Dressed Man” – “clean shirt, new shoes, gold watch, diamond ring, top coat, top hat – ’cause every girl crazy ‘bout a sharp dressed man.’” There’s something to these lyrics. You feel and act different when […]



I Not Schnicklefritz

I’ve come to the conclusion that you need a three-year-old to keep life in perspective. My grandson lives in another state so I’m grateful to whoever invented the Skype application. It lets me keep in touch with him and the rest of the family with […]

I’m sure most of you have heard the saying “history repeats itself.” While that might seem like something bad is bound to happen, it can also be an opportunity to realize what really worked in the past and could be a great benefit to the future. I […]



It’s That Time of Year Again

May 18th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

The Florida Tow Show and the American Towman ShowPlace in Vegas have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a chance to attend another tow show. I realized that when I just received notification to get my reservations in for the Wisconsin […]

I think I’m feeling what people felt during the Industrial Revolution – a little lost, scared and excited all at once. The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. It included going from hand-production […]



One Black Shoe, One Blue Shoe

May 1st, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Recently I went to a meeting wearing one black shoe and one blue shoe. I didn’t notice until I was sitting down at the conference table. The style of shoe is the same. I just grabbed what was in the closet. While I was a […]



Supporting, Not Competing, for the Top

Apr 23rd, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I like watching the Food Network, especially re-runs of the show Iron Chef. The show features known chefs who are given a basket of different food items — many I have never even heard of — to create an appetizer, entrée and dessert. There are […]
