A New Perspective by Trey Barrineau Thoughts on My First International Builders’ Show

When I joined DWM a little more than a month ago, one item on my busy calendar for 2015 really intrigued me — the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, which wrapped up last week. I’d read about it, and I knew that even though it isn’t as huge as it was in the […]

Plavecsky's Ponderings By Jim Plavecsky Sunlight on the Horizon for the Door and Window Industry

The “World Wide Web” was only 10 years old, our website was newly born and I just recently started sending and receiving email for business. I was sitting […]

Positive Polarity Add an Hour to Your Day—Every Day! Pt. 1

As I travel around and talk to different groups of business professionals, I’m amazed at how many people are struggling to get everything done in a day. When I ask the groups, “If you could change one thing about your current situation, what would it be?” At least 7 out of 10 tell me that […]

If you’ve followed my blog over the last year, you know I’m a strong advocate for participating in conversations that will impact our industry. After all, we only have ourselves to blame if we are unhappy with an outcome we didn’t take the time to help shape. That’s why I am happy to see that […]
