After a computer virus took hold of my computer yesterday I lost 4-5 hours trying to fix it myself. Our IT guy came in and took 45 minutes to have the virus removed. Which leads me to the point of my story, getting someone to fix whatever you need fixed is worth EVERY penny as long as it gets fixed and doesn’t get dragged out for days. This logic really can be applied to everything we do from working on elevators to manufacturing parts for them. Make sure you’ve got your virus software up to date and make a back up today! I’ve got a great show today with a variety of stories to talk about. Tonight is the Chicago Boat Cruise which I look forward to seeing many of you on! Next week is our prize pack giveaway so tune in towards the end of the show to see if you won $100.
