Old Fashioned is Best

I remember hearing my dad say, "They just don't make things like they used to." when talking about his 1970's Chevy Nova. My dad loved that car, but what he loved about it was that it was built to last. That car would last somebody 40 years or longer if taken care of properly. When he got rid of it, he would be in his 1991 Thunderbird praying that it would last just as long.

To say that the older things are the better they are is a strong stance, but it is better in some ways and not in others. When the 1970 Chevrolet Nova came out, the people were different. Most had survived World War II or were direct descendants of people who had. That generation took care of what they had. If their car broke, they fixed it.

We don't act like that today. It's rare to find somebody who will wash their car every Saturday, "whether it is dirty or not!" as my dad used to say. We are more likely to pay somebody to do something for us or just buy something new when it breaks down. When we take care of what we have, it will last us longer.

As business owners, I find that this is a big thing for us as well. If we take care of the employees that we have and we are generous towards them, they will in turn be happier while working with our customers. This in turn will help in the retention of customers, which in turn will build your bottom line.

Old Fashioned ways aren't always best (I do like my classic cars, though). When talking about how we do business, Janine and I at Legacy Innovative LLC subscribes to old fashioned customer service. Take care of clients the best that we can and they will take care of us!
