No matter the weather you are experiencing as you celebrate this wonderful holiday. Whether you have decided to dress up or down. Let’s take some time to think about what we have to be thankful for.

Here are a few pictures of what we are thankful for.

Let Freedom Ring!

Do you ever admire an individual who marches to the beat of their own drum? Do you secretly wish you had the gumption to be as confident as they were? Some types of people fit this bill might be visionaries, entrepreneurs and artists first come to mind for me. What about you? Where am I going with this?

There is freedom in being apart of the team of a small business owner. Did you know you join a work family? Where your name is known and the boss texts you instead of mass corporate email blasts. It’s a place where your ideas could lead the company to exciting places and where your hard work goes appreciated and seen!

We have this rare privilege of linking arms with some incredible craftsmen, laborers, designers and builders to create luxurious spaces our clients tell their family and friends about. It’s an honor to have these incredible people on our team, but WE NEED MORE! The projects are there, the work is there but the laborer’s to install these masterpieces are lacking. Are you ready to join a unique team of laborers and craftsmen? What we do isn’t construction, we install functionable artwork, everyday. Are you ready to join the Phillips Tile & Stone Team? If so, fill out our contact form and we will get in contact with you!

Best of Summer

How is your summer going? Have you been able to take any trips? Grow a garden? Go swimming? Grill?

We hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves this summer. Our summer has been packed. We found a house and moved and became landlords! The day we moved our kids started swim lessons. I’m happy to say they only missed one day of lessons in the those two weeks but we were exhausted. Moving is not for the birds. 🙂 However, we are happy we found something in this market as our family grows.

Our small trips got pushed back as we weren’t planning on finding a house. So very soon we will pack in three weekend trips all while continuing to serve our clients during the weekdays. It’s just how the entrepreneur lives. 🙂 All our fellow business owners can relate, I’m sure.

As today is August 1st, I’m sending out our “please vote” reminder for all you wonderful people. Our company is again in the voting for Best of Omaha- Tile Installer. When we won last year, we actually didn’t even know we won until we checked the company P.O. box. It was a wonderful and special surprise that we attribute to ALL OF YOU because of your votes.

Guess what, we back! We need your help!

We would absolutely love to have your votes again. This small, family owned business is grateful to be in our 11th year of business and we strive daily to push out amazing projects for our clients.

Here is our quick vote code link to vote in Best of Omaha. Please vote for your other favorite Omaha businesses as well. Small businesses need an encouraging boost, and this is just the ticket to do so!

Happy Mother’s Day!

This is such a special day to celebrate. Mom’s are so special. Each mom is so unique in how she show’s love to her children. Thank you to all the mom’s out there that are doing their best to raise the next generation. We hope you feel appreciated, we hope you feel seen. We hope you know we are rooting for you as you complete all the tasks for any given day. If you don’t hear it today, thank you for all you do!

Happy Superwoman Day

New Growth

As we move into spring, I’m encouraged. I’m encouraged by new growth. As I watch my tulips grow and begin to blossom, I see a beautiful miracle. To those of you who have caught the garden growing bug, like myself, it’s addicting to watch new life burst through the ground from those tiny seeds or bulbs you planted. It’s addicting to watch grass gain color and fullness. It’s sometimes a pain to cut said grass, but that’s not my point.

We love to watch nature grow, but how have YOU grown as a person? Have you ever taken the time to write out your dreams? Do you know how to make those dreams into small goals to accomplish everyday so you CAN reach those dreams you’ve got?

Here at Phillips Tile & Stone, we like to dream. We like to plan. We like to accomplish.

I’m here to challenge you to dream and to plan. Do you want to remodel a room in your home? Do you want to take a trip? Do you want to get healthy? Do you want to change careers? Do you want to finish that degree?

No matter your dream, big or small. We’d like to encourage you to take that next step, beyond the dream and move into the planning part to make that goal a reality.

We believe you’ve got what it takes to accomplish that dream! Let’s start this new spring season filled with HOPE and gusto. Happy spring, friends!

The Facts

Is it safe to assume, we all enjoy getting to know more about a company and a little bit about it’s backstory? I’ve been told it’s never safe to assume, however, there are some new faces around here and that means a short introduction to our small business. Here are a few facts about Phillips Tile & Stone you might not know!

-Our company was created during the height of the recession in 2010. Yes, that was a nail biting time to create a company, however, a true entrepreneur creates what they do not find.

-Does anyone remember the year 2010? Because of the time when our company was created, we never took out any loans to create Phillips Tile & Stone so we have slowly grown. As business owners, we have felt all the feels as we navigate a recession and a pandemic. We are thankful. There isn’t any other word for it. Thankful.

-Those early years we relied solely on word of mouth marketing. Our clients are the best and continue to be the best!! Do you want to know something interesting? Roughly 70% of our projects are STILL from word of mouth referrals, that is incredible. YOU all are amazing! We will say it again, our clients are the best.

-We are a family business. We are a husband and wife team with a talented construction crew and incredible sub contractors.

-As a small business, we adore being able to create jobs for our community. Do you know of a talented craftsman looking for a career? Send them our way!

-We value excellent craftsmanship and integrity. One Hundred Percent.

-To say we are grateful for the opportunity to serve Omaha and the surrounding areas, would be putting it mildly. It makes our hearts burst knowing the past 10.5 years we’ve had the honor of creating beautiful spaces our clients love!

As you get to know our small business we hope you hear gratitude and a desire to continue making our small business BETTER. For our clients and our employees. We consider it an honor to serve you!

Are you ready for this?

2021 is here, so let’s try something new! Our company has partnered up with a local custom T-shirt company and all profits will be donated to a non-profit! This new venture allows us to tackle three birds with one stone, and YOU get to be that stone. 🙂

T-shirts? Why t-shirts? Our ‘why’ is very simple. Our hope is to send the money raised to The Open Door Mission. We all need extra help at times in life and this organization does a great job extending a helping hand to those in need. Besides, who doesn’t like wearing a good t-shirt? When I came across this opportunity AJ was offering, there were zero hesitations in my mind this was something Phillips Tile & Stone needed to try.

Your t-shirt order will cover the cost of production and $4 from every t-shirt sale will go directly to The Open Door Mission. As for our logo, you get to represent a small, family business that was created from scratch in Omaha, Nebraska. Click here to order your t-shirt!

Thank you for allowing us this dream of creating beautiful spaces you love.

Have a beautiful day, friends!
