Posted by Matt Roberge on Mar 24, 2015 7:30:00 AM

At this point in my career I have come to terms with the fact that there are some dream jobs that I will just never have. I consider myself to be a pretty hard worker and if I’m good at what I’m doing that means I’m a productive employee. I was talking to an employee last week and I said, “Do you know what my favorite things to do are? Get up early, go to work, and coffee." Those three traits typically lead me to have productive days. For various reasons I feel that the list of jobs below is what I would love to do but probably never will.

How Small Business Owners Who Own 2006 Tundras Can Save Money

Posted by Matt Roberge on Jan 5, 2015 7:00:00 AM

Today's post is a guest post from Jerry "Fishfull" Smalley. Jerry is an Iowa native that moved to the Flathead Valley in Montana over 30 years go. He is a retired science teacher, fly tying and casting instructor and an avid fly fisherman. He has written a weekly fishing column for over 30 years in the Hungry Horse News called "Fishfull Thinking." When not fishing you can find Jerry fixing things that he breaks like his truck. 

Short Answer: By Saving Time

And How Can They Save Time?

Long Answer: The FIRST time your TPS light blinks, take your rig to the tire company who charges the least to install Toyota EOM sensors and request all 4 grounded tire sensors be replaced at the same time. Get it done ONCE, then go back to work, doing what you do best. Remember the sensors operate on batteries with an 8-10 year life span. Fishfull recommends Tire-Rama, but be sure they use Toyota EOM sensors, not NAPA. Got 3 done for $102 each; last one cost $86. Toyota dealer wanted $160-$190 depending on who wrote the service work order.

Save Time. Save Money. Increase Productivity. Take Fishfull Fishing!
