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.
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 May Day, to all you beautiful people. The sun is shining and it’s a glorious day in Omaha, Nebraska. We’ve got three boys in baseball with Trevor coaching one team. I’m not sure who needs to hear this, but go enjoy this season of life! Plant the garden. Book the vacation. Sign up for the class. Order the swimsuit! Give it a whirl.
I hope you decide life is exciting and choose to make the steps to go for it!
On the business side of life, we are working hard at getting all the projects installed. Our team is out there doing what they do best. Installing spaces you (our client) adore. On the family side of life, out family is growing up and we are trying to cherish all the moments.
Have a beautiful first day of May. Do you need to get that estimate set up? Let me make it easy for you. Head to this link to get started. We hope to hear from you soon!
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!
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.
1. Our commitment to a satisfied client is so strong, we go as far as to back up our craftsmanship. It’s your investment and it’s our name! As a company we are proud to bring you excellence in every area we bring to the table. Craftsmanship and customer service being our top two. We understand good design but it takes skill to take that beautiful design and make it a reality. We will always be honest with our clients and their investments.
2. Our commitment to our wonderful employees is huge to us. Construction is difficult. We appreciate our crew! When we hire, we hire individuals that are honest and ready to learn. We are proud of our work crew!
3. All the pictures you see on our website and socials are our own work! (With the exception of stories.) It’s important that our clients are inspired by beautiful design. Inspiration is important but execution is what we deliver, daily. Not everyone can install masterpieces like we can. 😉
4. Integrity is what we strive for daily. Plain and simple.
5. We are a simple company that wants to provide extraordinary craftsmanship for our clientele.
6. A good design will always knock our socks off.
7. Trevor sometimes takes the kids’ lunchboxes to the job site. It’s ok for a grown man to carry a Spider-Man lunchbox.
8. Yes, we do projects in other states! Don’t let the miles hinder you from a free estimate. If you want quality work, we bring that to you. Wherever you are, but we call Omaha, Nebraska home.
9. Strong communities are what we love to see. That’s why we enjoy volunteering when we can!
10. We adore that we get to do this for a living. Thank you for allowing our family the privilege to serve your family since 2010.
