A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

May 22nd, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

The quote “a picture is worth a thousand words” conveys the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single image. A piture also makes it possible to visually see and absorb a large amount of data quickly. If someone took a […]



Every Day Should be Mother’s Day

May 8th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Mother’s Day is this weekend, but I think every day should be Mother’s Day. I believe every woman — whether she has children or not — does some sort of “mothering” to others. I know that when I was growing up my Mom was a […]



Assets and Liabilities

May 1st, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

When you look at your balance sheet for your business and see the assets and liabilities listed, do you ever think of your employees rather than the numbers and bottom line? Employees can be a liability, but they are most certainly your greatest assets. Acquiring […]



Family and Towing

Apr 24th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

My grandson was baptized last weekend. It was a joyous occasion and as I watched the priest pour water over his head. I marveled at where the time has gone. Wow — my husband and I are grandparents to a precious little miracle! So far […]



What’s Your Top Priority List?

Apr 17th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

My husband and I attended the Florida Tow Show last week. I think the lure of sun and fun — along with networking, attending educational seminars, checking out new towing equipment and watching demonstrations — played a big part in this well-attended show. As I […]

Last week my husband and I attended the funeral for Joe Pedigo, owner of Joe’s Towing & Recovery in Bloomington, Ill. Like a lot of towing companies, Joe’s Towing is family owned and operated and the loss of the cornerstone of the family leaves a […]



A Pill for Everything

Mar 30th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

When I was a little girl and not feeling well, my mom would put her hand on my forehead to see if I felt warm and that would determine if I had a fever. If she thought I felt a bit too warm, Doctor Mom […]



A Pat on the Back

Mar 20th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I often go home tired and exhausted. No, I am not out in the tow truck doing towing and recovery work, and although my job is not often physically demanding, I do put in long hours and with juggling the phones, customers, employees, bookwork and […]



Rest In Peace

Mar 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

You’ve all heard the saying “life is too short” and lately I’ve heard that said way too much. We had a towing friend pass away and another became seriously ill. Although both of these towers were retired, they still were active in our state towing […]



Two Sides to the Story

Feb 27th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

In my 30 years of being in the towing business, I have learned everyone has a story. I have also learned there are two sides to every story and before making any judgments or conclusions, we need to hear both sides. Each side brings with […]
