Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I trained for this job to ensure I can stake the most perfect sign.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? My first sign was crazy. I put it up at night and was so nervous someone would see me or call the cops, but they didn’t. However, there was a huge wind gust that woke me up at 2 a.m. and I thought, “OMG, the sign is going to blow away,“ and I couldn’t sleep.
I returned to the residence at 5 a.m. and sure enough the signs were all over the customer’s yard, her neighbor’s and their neighbors’ yards, too. It all worked out; I put it back together and now I use heavy duty duct tape to reinforce the stakes so that will never happen again.
