Mark is going to be featured in a TriWest ad in Vetrepreneur magazine.  This is a series of ads featuring veteran small business owners that are vendors for TriWest.  TriWest encourages supporting veteran owned small businesses.  They truly set aside business for the cause.  In fact, not only, do they support veteran owned businesses, they chose to try Better Direct while Mark was deployed.  They have been valued customers ever since.   Below is a behind the scenes shot from the shoot that will be in the magazine. Thank you again TriWest.     Your Loyal Operations Manager … Read More

Quick Note from Josh Breese on April 27, 2012

There is a lot that I can learn still from our fearless leader Mark Evans. I like the way that he takes time to teach me the small things that I need to learn so I have an advantage on understanding my customers’ needs at a much larger scale. I started with Better Direct when there was only 2 employees, we are now at 11 employees and growing, Better Direct has given me direction and the skills to maintain long term relationships with my clients. – Josh Breese www.betterdirect.com … Read More

A Minute Too Soon by Mark Evans on April 27, 2012

Is the American work ethic on the decline?  Not long ago I went to a store arriving just as they were getting ready to close.  The clerk said, “oh you arrived just a minute too late”.  I responded, “aren’t you closing a minute too early”?  I interviewed a large number of people over the last year and in the course of the interview I inserted a math question.  What’s 2% of 700K?  The best answer I received was “that’s a lot”.   I like everyone,  I like the clerk, and I enjoyed all the folks that have come in for an interview.  I … Read More

Chris’s Blog – and Ramblings… by Chris Hustrulid on April 25, 2012

Welcome to this week’s BLOG.  By now I am sure I have millions of die-hard-fans.  As you know I attempt to blend a little humor with a topic that has recently besieged me.  This blog has a very serious tone, so be warned. Seriously, I love saying that, it makes what I’m about to say THAT much more dramatic! (Not really.)  ((Is this proper use of parentheses?)) I love my job.  I do.  At the end of around 19 out of 21 days, I say, “That was a great day!”  I sound like an old fork lift operator unloading crates … Read More
