I will request to casters please share your opinions about the business model of moving companies. In my area Edmonton, there's much scope I see but unable to take final decision either I should start it or look for any other business model. I'm following this moving company https://albertafirstmoving.ca/ and if I start it, will follow their working method. BTW, what do you suggest?

Many moving firms exist, however if you're planning a move in the near future, I recommend calling https://paradisemove.com/product-details/loading-unloading/ if you need help loading and unloading your belongings. A fair price is charged for their services, as they are the best in the business. I'm delighted to recommend this product because I've already tried it and had a nice experience with it.

Wow. The store manager in LA is one in a million. Not many would have thought to go get a customer to answer a question the big boss just asked of them. It sounds crazy. She knew enough to know that the big cheese had a reason to visit all these stores, she knew this customer well enough to trust he would say the right thing, and he whole perception of the moment was on another level. Lastly, she had the selflessness and let's not forget, balls, to respond this way. Most other managers would serve up a bullshit sandwich, praising themselves, their team, then themselves some more. Hope she has risen high in the company.

I listen 🎧 & was waiting to hear how Walt use to draw cartoons for his mum as a child As my daughter worked a Epcot she had to learn the history & secrets regarding Walt & Disney’s so if customers told her a story she had to act surprised So there’s a hell of a lot more to do with Disney that is much more sinister Please research more for coco cola as I’m a huge collector
