Driving down the road I notice an American flag flying at Astro Outdoor Advertising. I remember Astro signs.  I have notice them form many years. when I go to local area stores and businesses and see the signs that where made by this company.

Go to their website www.astreosignco.com. They have a very interesting history and a lot of samples of their great work. You will see on their website that they offer many services. Billboard advertising, production, design, installation, maintenance, digital printing and more. Oh and by the way, they offer Flags and flag poles. Click on the installation on their site and see Astro working on one of their customers who is Franklin Trailers and you will see Franklin’s American flag flying in the back ground.

What an interesting businesses, think about it, a business needs a sign or a billboard to advertising and of course American flags and flag poles.

On Astro website they mention some good advise to businesses. They say for billboard advertising Outdoor advertising has a lower cost per thousand than any other type of advertising. 80% less than TV commercials, 60% less than newspaper ads and 50% less than radio. As a business you going have to  think about advertising. Advertising on a billboard may not be a bad idea.

As a business you want a clean and eye catching sign and yes of course a beautiful American flag. So fly your American flag and let me know so I can post about your business on my American flag sighting blog.

Here or some entrepreneur quotes from entrepreneur.com

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”  Albert Einstein

“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”  Winston Churchill

and one of my favorite- “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” Walt Disney

 

 

Original Great American Steak

American Flags flying in outdoor dining

I was in El Paso,Texas again for a few weeks. As I was there we stop at a Steak restaurant. As we pulled up to the restaurant the first thing I notice was American Flags flying in the outside dining area. I took some pictures of the outside area. We walked inside and order a steak burger because it was just too hot outside in Texas in July. Original Great American Steak are know for their steaks and steak burgers. I ordered their well known steak burger, and to my surprise I was served a juicy burger with a little American flag.

Yes, an American Flag sighting on my steak burger.

 American Flags Flying Along Route 26

From small a small Deli named Ocean view Deli to condo’s I passed by the usually flag flying businesses like fast food restaurants, car lots and Banks. But I love seeing the hundreds of other small businesses of American Flags along Route 26. I wish I could stop and get a history of their business. How they got started and what or who inspired them.

WECOM inc a sheet metal fabrication and a laser cut company. Proudly flying an American flag.

Tuck in the corner of a little side street about a block from a small town post office in New Jersey, I notice an American flag flying. It wasn’t a Government building like a Fire or Police Department but was hard to see from where I was. After my business in the post office I took a drive down that little side street.

 

There it was, I forgot all about this company. According to their website Wecom Inc was started in 1961. WECOM inc is a precision sheet metal fabrication company. Some are their work includes aerospace, food, electronic, railroad and many more. Here’s a link to their about me page so can see the work they specialized in. Wecom inc, proud enough to fly the American Flag.

I spoke to an employee who has been at this company going on 24 years who is CAD guy. He said that Wecom is own by 2nd generation family. Two brothers own now started by their father in 1961. There you have it someone had a vision or need or just a desire to take a chance and start their own company. This person was able to past it down to his kids.

 Just another example of American engineering and entrepreneurship. A company likes this bring jobs into this small town which in returns brings revenue to the town.

Here are some inspirational quotes I found on Business Insider

“Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.” —Guy Kawasaki, Alltop co-founder and entrepreneur

“The value of an idea lies in the using of it.” —Thomas Edison, General Electric Co-founder

Boat Business in the Desert

A Boat Business in the Desert

 

You know the old saying, want to buy beach front property in the desert? Well what about a boat business in the desert? As I was at Elephant Butte, New Mexico I notice another business proudly flying their American flag. there in the middle of vast miles of New Mexico’s terrain ( desert is what it looks like to me) sits a small boat business.

Boating is popular at the Elephant Butte reservoir so somebody had had  to start a business for boat repairs and marine shop. See the flag proudly flying at this business?

 

An Inspiration quote from Michael Jordan

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”  –Michael Jordan, NBA Legendary Basketball MVP

From an article from Forbes and contributor Richard Harroch.

When you drive up to this mini plaza you are in the middle of no where, but what a beautiful area. Elephant Butte Park is just off  Warm Spring Boulevard.  The park has a beautiful huge lake which ia a reservoir created by the Rio Grande.  A major advantage to this Park is that you drive right onto the beach with your jeep or truck.  This gives you the benefit of setting up camp for just the day or overnight. Setting up camp allows  you can enjoy all that the reservoir has offer.  You see people camping right on the beach. They go swimming, boating, ride their jet skis or just lay in the sun.  Elephant Butte is not just a great vacation spot, but a great place to live.  Truth of Consequences, another town in Sierra County, is known for its geothermal mineral waters and offers many historic nature trails and Hot Springs as it was formally known.   New Mexico is a  vast open area of miles and miles of open land, so if you are looking for a place to call home whether it is ranching, farming or a single family home Elephant Butte, Truth or Consequences  or  Sierra County may be the place for you.  If you are interested in find out more about these area Check out the Plaza Reality website .  Americans are resilient people who set  up a business in many different places and no matter where you go in American, American businesses show their pride by flying the American flag in front of their business
