    The fact that she shorted you $1k for the work you already did, then had the audacity to call and complain about the "massive chip" that someone else made, is just mind boggling to me. You've a lot more patience than me, because I think I would told her no, blacklisted her as a client, and taken her to small claims for the $1k.

    It happens to everyone Ryan, but I love your mindset in all these videos. It’s okay to complain just not to make a habit out of it.
    I’ve never done concrete in my life but I still watch your videos because you’re super positive and your guys are too most of the time.
    Keep up the good work and hope you had a great thanksgiving

    Love how Ryan is such a great boss and friend. He's giving Eric some of the most honest and straight forward advice on how to do things. Some people will never encounter someone who can motivate and lift you up without jealousy or envy. Ryan is like the best mentor and is a great source of inspiration (at least in my eyes) to Eric.

    Ryan I love the way you give Eric advice and encourage Him as well, we can definitely see your influence in Him.
    And just so that you'll know it's never boring listening to You talking weather it's about a Good day that you are having or a Bad Day due to rude people and their comments, You are always thinking Positive and even when you are making your point you always seem to find the a way to see the brighter side of any situation.
    You hit the nail on the head when you explained how it is about how some of the same people who encourage you in the beginning end up rooting against later on in your success.
    Keep being You and I look forward to seeing your videos as well.
    Blessings to you and your family and lots of Success in your future as well.

    Ryan, definitely important subject/content. It is very nice to see how you support your team. You're definitely a (cheer)leader of your guys and it shows and in life you can never have too many cheerleaders. Also, I agree completely about advise. The thing about advise to remember is that "Advise not asked for is not well received". I have to keep reminding my self of this quote when I see someone make a mistake or struggle with something that I have had to deal with before. Just stumble upon your second channel. Looking forward to more videos.
    Any chance that you would share with us Erics new channel info?

    You’re a good guy for doing what you’re doing considering the customer man, don’t let a bad apple get the best of you. Hopefully she grows up and actually pays you the 1000$ if not I’d just send her a invoice every month till she finally pays. Sad people are that scummy.
    Keep doing you you’re a great businessman and business owner Ryan.

      I never let a customer beat me out of one cent after my third project. I was a successful General Contractor in the 1980's, doing just over 1000 remodeling projects of every type. The third project into my career a customer told me I will not give you the last installment because I don't like the color of the grout for a tiny hallway project after it dried to the exact color of the sample. So I dug it out and replaced the hallway tile and told her to forget the last payment. I then went STRAIGHT over to a lawyer, paid $80 for a legal contract that would say that under no circumstances will I go back to do work on a project already accepted as complete....and I never did. I never returned calls on the answering machine, never went to look at the work, and never cared what they thought or who they spoke too. I only did quality work. Over all those projects I received higher and higher pay and more and more repeat customers...because I do the job ONCE, and never go back.

    Hey great video. You seem to be a standup guy, not sure I could have gone and fixed that chip.
    Just a friendly reminder, a guy in a wheelchair may need that striped space to deploy a wheelchair lift or ramp and they are barely wide enough as it is. Obviously not an issue at this place, but in a crowded parking lot it is huge.
    Thanks for your content. Much continued success to you, Sir!

    Eric is going to need another year working for you before he gets himself in a better position in knowledge and tools. But he will learn a lot this winter as well, along with Francisco.

    One thing you learn in any business you're in - You don't want every customer that comes along. But you are right, you don't want to be in a complaining mode, better to have a positive spirit.

    I was in business for a long time and it's amazing what nick pick things customers will do to hold your money back , it's unreal ... I spent 8 hours on a dirt drive install was loaded up the guy says , it wasn't level ,and "had to tell" me how to do it , I told him I'm trying to keep water going down hill , but he didn't care , unreal .. I've got so many stories .., and many folks are so happy you came out and worked for them and ate honest ,, but the rich , control freaks horrible .. every time

    Glad you had to mix that whole yard of concrete to fix that huge hole. You always get them few customers that are always never happy no matter how nice your job is! But just going back to make them maybe happy is very professional! Nice work Brian!

    My favourite thing with Ryan is his honesty. He stands by his convictions and only wants the best for everyone he comes in contact with. I've been using this channel and the main one to learn leadership skills in my own trade and it has helped me a lot. Thanks!

      Wrong convictions though they are. I was a successful General Contractor in the 1980's, doing just over 1000 remodeling projects of every type. The third project into my career a customer told me I will not give you the last installment because I don't like the color of the grout for a tiny hallway project after it dried to the exact color of the sample. So I dug it out and replaced the hallway tile and told her to forget the last payment. I then went STRAIGHT over to a lawyer, paid $80 for a legal contract that would say that under no circumstances will I go back to do work on a project already accepted as complete....and I never did. I never returned calls on the answering machine, never went to look at the work, and never cared what they thought or who they spoke too. I only did quality work. Over all those projects I received higher and higher pay and more and more repeat customers...because I do the job ONCE, and never go back.

      @Bri Ba I agree. At the end of the day she just needs to finish the payment. No excuses to delay that any longer especially when Ryan met her request to fix that tiny spot.

    • Bri Ba
      Bri Ba Před 2 měsíci

      @ST I get it, but I've also had interactions with tradies and their partners where it's unclear who's responsible, but somebody better fix it right now. I think I'm generally more understanding of the situation than her, but I also get her concern that she's gonna be left with that mark and no skill to fix it. At the same time, it was such a small mark, Ryan's right to worry about future calls. I'd probably make it clear that this was a favour but won't be a regular thing, and give me my money, it's past due.

    • ST
      ST Před 2 měsíci

      @Bri Ba repairing damage that you didn’t do? It was the guy who installed the railing who did the damage. This had nothing to do with Ryan but he had to take the time and $ to repair it.

      Don't ever take your life. I lost my twin brother two years ago. To say we were extremely close is the understatement of the century, we were as close as two humans could ever possibly be. If I can go on and live my life, as hard as it is, without him, you can find some reason to live yours.

    You got to love nit-picker, ridiculous customers who hold you hostage on a payment due to the actions of another contractor or something as miniscule as that tiny chip. That's ridiculous & nonsense.
    Glad to see Victory/Ryan/crew are doing well, as are Eric & Francisco on their side business and CHclip channel. I can tell Eric appreciates it!
    As for two-faced people who wish ill-will on you that once supported you (or haters that jealous), they're just showing their true colors and lets you know they are not people you want in your life. Been there, done that. Proud of ALL you guys!
