Not a dryer or dryer vent related post today but rather a post on life.  At age 48, I feel enormous gratitude toward my many customers who have helped me to not only support me and my own family, but the families of our employees.

I set out to create a business that I could be proud of because we provide a service, and do it with honestly, integrity, and a true desire to help.  And after 7 years, I feel we have been able to do just that.

Now I have set off on my own adventure with Dryer Tech.  Started 3 years ago, it has been a project in the making as the focus changes, but the desire to do the right things for the right reasons has always been at the forefront of my business plan.

And now, I have been able to see a positive growth with the help of my dedicated customers and their desire to use a small, family run business for their dryer needs.

One thing I have always worked toward in my business model was contribution. Some might call it charity, but I prefer contribution because it is my way of putting back into the system some of what I took out along the way.  And after years in business contributing in various ways, I feel I have finally found a place that not only meets my needs for contribution, but also includes my values as a person.

Kiva, a micro loan model that allows people like you and me to help make the world a better place for others.  By loaning small (or large) amounts in combination with others, the financial needs of people from around the world can be met and when repaid, the funds can continue to help others in a continuous loop of funding.

Just recently, I set a goal of 1% of my budgeted sales to be used to fund Kiva loans.  And as the business continues to grow, I hope to increase that amount to help make the world a better place for us all.  You too can join me on my Kiva quest.  Join me and together, we can make the world a better place, one loan at a time.
