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 […]

The Industrial Revolution

May 11th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

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 […]

I recently read a post by a girl who is the daughter from a small, family-owned towing business. She’s now in college, and she reflected on how being involved in a small family business was one of the greatest gifts she’d ever received. As a […]

Only Five?

We have five senses – sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. I think we should add one more important sense to the list – common sense. While the first five senses apply to the organs in our body, common sense is a way of taking […]

Once in a While

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

A vehicle owner called the day after his vehicle was towed to our lot. I told him the usual items that would be needed for him to pick up his vehicle. After that conversation I chalked it up to one more owner not coming to […]

I Should Know Better

Mar 16th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Whoever said you shouldn’t talk religion or politics is totally right. But these hot topics are brought up in many daily conversations. A customer came in and, as is sometimes the case, some political comment came up and we starting talking. I should know better than […]

Emotions and the Sky

Mar 9th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I travel west on my way home, and have had the opportunity to see awesome, beautiful sunsets. Sometimes the sun is a gigantic, orange ball surrounded by vivid red, yellow, pink and purple. The scenes often help to remind me that even at the end […]
