Good morning water damage Denver friends. Good to be with you. Happy that you want to learn more about little tips and tricks related to the water damage Denver industry and how we, um, strive every day to be the best possible water damage Denver company that we can be. I’m to talk one last time about the Kobe Bryant situation and just reflect on kind of the aftermath of his passing and everybody that was in, in the helicopter and just what a surreal event that, uh, that was in my opinion really whether you are a basketball fan or not, whether you’re a Lakers fan or not, whether you even like the guy or not. Um, I think that there’s great value in looking at a person’s life, their ups, their downs, their massive successes, their colossal mistakes and kind of their impact on other people, their legacy to a certain extent,

but

most importantly how they changed other people’s lives for the better. And certainly like I’ve said many, many times, we have a handful of goals with our water damage dimmer company. We want to be elite technically. We want to respond quickly. We want to do a great job for our customers so that they look back on the experience and appreciate the hard work and the attention to detail, those sorts of things. But we also have this somewhat weird,

yeah,

untypical desire to be a lot more than that when it comes to the overall, the overall experience that we provide to those that we do business with. Both our customers, the people that call us out for, you know, a water damage, Denver job, but also for contractors that we network with that we might bring in to work on certain projects. Believe it or not, insurance agents, adjusters, the people that we may have disagreements with from time time, but ultimately need to work together with to get resolution for the individuals that have experienced the loss. And so I’ve always, you know, kind of had this weird idea of a dichotomy when it comes to anybody that’s quote unquote famous

[inaudible]

nowadays their lives are on, on display for the rest of the world. And that’s probably both a good and bad thing for them. It probably makes them, you know, exposes them, gives them the opportunity to learn, earn a lot more money if they so choose, but it also can be invasive on their family life and bring a lot of kind of cons to the equation as well. Obviously the big magnified event was a situation he had with a young lady here in Vail, Colorado, whatever it was 15 years ago or so. And um, something happened that wasn’t good. Hard to know what the exact truth was. Not sure that I really care necessarily except for the fact that it may have destroyed multiple lives and that is not something to be taken lightly. So whoever that person was, whoever the family of that person and the friends of that person were and are, I imagine they’re still greatly affected by that event. And that was the only one that was incredibly magnified. I’m sure he had other big time mistakes and regrettable events and don’t pretend that I would want to speculate or that that’s any of my business

much like much like when we go into a water damage Denver situation and there’s a suspicion of mold. All we can operate off of is what’s visual.

Unless we bring in a third party to do testing and you know, really, really use all sorts of instruments to, to detect anything and everything that could have happened in the past. We have to operate off of what we see visually. We have to make assumptions and make plans and make, um, determinations off of what we see visually. Kind of like Kobe, we know that he did that horrific thing at some point in time. And we also watched him on the basketball court and you know, saw him in the media with his interviews and he definitely kind of carved himself out a little niche of kind of a, a villain. And, uh, it didn’t come off as the most likable person, the most amicable person. But the dude had it drive. The guy had a passion and he had this insane work ethic that pushed him every day too. B, the most insanely successful basketball player that he could be. Now he had all the God given things, the height, the speed, the athleticism. He pushed himself and others past what they thought were, you know, limitations and I love, love, love that. I love that part

and obviously the fruition of that was five championships, Olympic gold medals, all sorts of crazy accomplishments and those things are impressive as well. Again, just visually what I see, what I’ve heard, the stories that have been told culminating in the massive Memorial yesterday were stories of a person that at some point realized that he had the platform with his celebrity, with his status to be a huge, huge support and resource for other people, not just in basketball but in life. Seems to me that he matured to understand that he had an incredible responsibility as a father to nurture his all his beautiful young girls to care for them to be the best dad he could be. Seems to me from afar that he also made that decision as a husband and again, obviously he, he wasn’t faithful. He made some massive mistakes

[inaudible]

but it seems to me it would appear from what we know from a very, very, very outside perspective that at some point he decided to recommit himself as a husband and obviously there’s, there’s good days and bad days in a marriage, but it seems to me

[inaudible]

that at some point he started to take that position very seriously and be as good of a husband as he could be. Probably the two most important things that he needed to focus on at any point in life was that husband and father role

[inaudible].

But from the very outside perspective, listening to the stories that he

[inaudible]

had, the impacts that he had on, on other people in the sport, people that were older than him in more of a management ownership role, mentor role, people that who were his contemporaries, players he played with players he played against. And then also that younger generation kids that looked up to him, young girls, young boys that tried to fashion their game after his, tried to adopt his relentless mentality. People that reached out to him to just chat. Um, it seems to me that he went above and beyond to encourage support, help plug people in where he could. There was a story of an internship. Moments before his death, he reached out to his best friend, uh, general manager of the Lakers too to try to plug a young lady in with an internship in a baseball franchise of some from the helicopter

[inaudible].

So these are the types of things that drive us and I, we don’t have nearly the platform that he does, but as just a small water damage Denver company and what people call the Western part of the United States, um, in a city that I guess is assumed to be kind of small but is pretty, pretty good size and is growing every day. Love to have that kind of an impact on people where the appreciation is there for, for the experience. Whether it’s as an employee of the company, client of the company, a business to business relationship of whatever kind, a individual or business that has an experience with with our little water damage timber company, we would always strive to have that kind of fond impact on people to where they could look back and appreciate the sincerity and the um, the willingness to do whatever we can to be helpful. Whatever that means to them.

[inaudible]

and it’s not just number 24, again, that that had an impact on people’s lives. Certainly his daughter, certainly all the other people on the helicopter had amazing lives and impacts on, on. People just don’t know because they, they weren’t in that spotlight. So definitely do not want to diminish, diminish those lives. Just don’t know about them as much. So a few reflections, a little bit of cathartic activity here this morning to reset and realize that, you know, what we do is, is a service, something that’s meant to provide help in our, in our community, but hopefully it’s more than just giving good technical water damage Denver solutions. We sure hope you never have to have that experience, but if you do, we’re ready to roll. We’d love to be the water damage Denver company of choice. If you have a water loss, fire loss, smoke damage issue or mold related loss, let us know. But in they’ll, until then, you stay safe.
