Every year I look forward to this holiday a little more. There is something endearing about a holiday that’s sole purpose is to “Give Thanks.”
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. Since this is our company blog, I’ll come at it from the perspective of Phillips Tile & Stone, but please, take your own situation and think about what YOU have to be thankful for.
So with that, here are 10 things we (Phillips Tile & Stone) are thankful for as a company.
Best of Omaha– 2022 Tile Installer: THANK YOU to ALL of YOU who voted! We are deeply honored!
We are thankful for our subcontractors who demonstrate their craftsmanship abilities day in and day out. Without these guys, Trevor wouldn’t be able to accomplish half of what he does. Because of these craftsmen, we can take on more projects and help more clients! Thank you men!
Word of Mouth- we are thankful for all of you who share the Phillips Tile & Stone name! It’s not easy owning a small business. However, our supportive clients make it worth it.
The people we get to meet and help, it’s amazing. We GET to help families and businesses by creating and installing functional and beautiful spaces.
We are thankful for 11 years of business. Trevor started Phillips Tile & Stone in 2010. Thank you to ALL who have utilized our growing company and services.
We are thankful we get to run this business as a husband and wife team.
This company helps teach our kids the meaning and value of hard work.
We GET to create jobs and careers! We are honored to teach, train and create job opportunities locally.
It’s truly amazing what can happen when you set your mind out to do something. We are thankful for the lessons we’ve learned and the growth that has taken place since we were 26 year old’s and starting Phillips Tile & Stone!
It’s your turn now, we hope you take the time ( it only takes 10 minutes or so) to drum up 10 things you are thankful for. I guarantee it’ll change your mindset and help you enjoy this wonderful holiday with new perspective.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
Here are a few pictures of what we are thankful for.
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!
It is our pleasure serving and providing Omaha with superior craftsmanship, installation, customer service and design assistance.
As our company grows, we are HIRING!! Our talented team is ready to expand and Trevor is ready to train additional tradesmen who are looking to excel at all things tile and stone installation. Click here to apply!
Have a great day, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
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!
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!
If it’s alright with you, I’d like to share 10 things we are thankful for that happened in 2020 for our family and Phillips Tile & Stone. As a small, family business, we have felt all the feels this year. Growth, stretching, momentum, tiredness and lots of hard work are some words I would use to describe this year. Here are 10 things we are thankful for this year.
Our rainbow baby boy was born! He came fast and furiously on February 26th, right before the world was paused. We are so thankful for him!
We were able to still participate in Awana at our church. The older four kids enjoy it and Trevor enjoys being a Sparks Leader.
We created a co-op! It has been such a blessing as we homeschool and we weren’t sure how the school year would look. Creating this group has been such a good outlet for both fun and educational.
Phillips Tile & Stone won Best of Omaha Tile Installer! Thank YOU to all who voted. We work hard to make our clients happy!
We made a few more of our own home improvements.
Our family was able take a couple short vacations. One was glamping in a beautiful cabin by a lake with wonderful friends and the other was to The Elms. It was so refreshing to have these short getaways!
Phillips Tile & Stone turned 10 years old and we celebrated with local giveaways on our FB and IG accounts!
Trevor and Michelle celebrated 11 years of marriage.
Trevor coached baseball while our older two played. The boys also were able to play soccer and continue piano lessons.
Through everything that happened this year, we were still able to work and provide service to our clients while providing for our family, our employees and their families! We are grateful. So grateful. Thank you to all our clients this year!!
This year we saw God provide again and again. No matter how your Christmas looks this year, remember that the Savior of the world was born in a lowly stable. He was born to die for my sin and yours. You are loved by Him. Jesus is worthy to be praised!
I sat here for a few minutes wondering exactly how to start this blog post. I’ve already started and deleted many sentences because this topic is so near and dear to my heart. So here is what I WILL say. We love our Omaha and we want our city to succeed and thrive! So how can we help our city thrive? How can we help Omaha thrive?
We can support local!
How do we do that? Why would we do that?
Local businesses are essential for our economy. Local businesses create employment, growth and innovation! Local businesses are what make OUR city unique!
It’s also fun to support local. If you want something unique, support local! Here are some of my favorite local Omaha spots. Have you been to a spot you love? Tell me. Trevor and I would love to try it out on one of our date nights.
The hour at which I’m writing this blog post is silly because my stomach is aching for some of these delicious foods. Let’s turn up the noise on supporting local! Tell me your best local Omaha spot, I’d love to hear!
I love planning parties! You know what else I love doing? Doing what I can to make my life easier while planning said parties. Sometimes I make the cake, sometimes I order it from a bakery. Sometimes I decorate for the party myself and sometimes I want something different (or easier). This past weekend, I had Party Ambiance out to decorate for our kid’s birthday party/heart anniversary! I first met Lena as I was talking to my neighbor in my front lawn. My neighbor said, “Well, look at all those balloons!” and I turned around and was warmly welcomed by Lena, who was carrying two large and fabulous balloon decorations for our party. She made the planning part easy and all online. The day I met her, she worked quickly in our home and left us party ready! I still stare at the creations she made and it’s been two days since she installed the balloons. They are just so FUN and happy! If you love having unique decorations for your parties, she is your gal!

First of all, THANK YOU for allowing us to serve you these last 10 years. It has been our privilege to create beautiful spaces you love!
In June of 2010, as the job market was dwindling and the economy was tanking. Phillips Tile & Stone was born. Trevor had his first project the very weekend I was a matron of honor in a dear friend’s wedding. Her anniversary helps me remember the exact day otherwise we might not have remembered. So thanks for getting married Jason and Alisha! Love you guys! Happy 10 year wedded anniversary to you both, too!
We’ve slowly grown over the years. I guess you could say we learned about business as we were in business. Our logo was created 3 years later in 2013 by a sweet woman from our church. The Versailles tile pattern used on there was intentional as it was Michelle’s first Mother’s Day gift from Trevor. When we celebrated 5 years as a company, we were pleasantly shocked! To us, 5 years was huge! At year 7 Michelle finally sat down, with a newborn baby in her arms and created a website. All the while Trevor was hustling at creating masterpieces for our wonderful clients. In year 9 we become an LLC and officially added Michelle as a co-owner, another exciting milestone. We are so thankful for the business owners, home owners, fellow craftsman, designers, friends and family we’ve been able to assist along the way. It’s an honor we hold very dearly. Never in our dreams would we have imagined this would be how we put food on the table but we are loving the adventure!
To celebrate, we are having a giveaway on our business Instagram AND Facebook accounts! We hope you join in on the fun. If you haven’t figured this out yet, we appreciate you all so much!
