People often talk to me about how my business works and why it’s been successful. I would like to take all the praise and say it’s all about me.
But …to be honest…. it’s the unsung heroes that need a mention.
Years ago, I came across my first ‘Whelan’ in the form of Dave. Dave worked for a landscape company and ‘got the job done’ – his key phrase was ‘we don’t fuck about’. He worked harder and more efficiently than anybody I had ever come across. Don’t get me wrong, he wasn’t perfect ….in fact he was a bit of a bastard…but boy did he get through some work.
Luckily the Whelan’s also produced a Phil, Dave’s brother, who also works for me. Dave also produced a son – Pete – …. again who works for me – and they are all the same. Same work ethic, same drive and determination to just get the job done.
Somebody should take a genetic sample and find what it is that’s in their gene pool… because whatever it is…it’s special.
So, if anybody asks why my business has continued to be successful – I should really say – it’s the Whelan’s.
