When I started this blog I wanted to use it as a way to communicate the things I have been doing in my own businesses that you may be able to use.

It seems I have never really gotten into that habit as I have had a lot of personal development posts. This is something I want to change. I will try to keep you better updated on what I am doing and how it is going. So lets start with a general update.

Gaddis Coaching is going great. I have gotten more traffic and attention then I thought I would by this time. I have already gotten clients in less than 3 months of business. I still have a long way to go though. I have to try to get out in the public more with speeches and seminars to entice clients and build my brand. I am currently working on what exactly my brand is as I have learned a lot about my business and myself in these few months. 

Gaddis Kennels is still trucking along. Our dogs are great. We had a pretty good health scare with Ruby and we are still working out the decisions we have to make there. We hope to have puppies this fall. Juno and Ringo are going to make great puppies.

My Smart Hands – My wife went to college for sign language. She is a certified teacher for the deaf. Unfortunately in our area there is not much need for this. So recently she teamed with My Smart Hands and will now be doing baby sign language with expectant and current parents. You can learn more here.

My wife and I have talked about incorporating our family businesses and consolidating reporting. We are exploring the different possibilities and will keep you posted on what we decide.

Gaddis construction is taking off as the spring season arrives. The work is being lined up and we will have a need for probably two crews this summer. My brothers and father have done a good job of lining up work and the company is posed for great growth. I will be more involved in the day-to-day as our growth continues.

The other businesses we are not fully focusing on at this point in time. We have plans to more aggressivly pursue them in the near future and will let you know how that goes.

In the future I will try to give more specific and timely updates on my businesses and what I am doing to grow them.
