The fun part of being in business for yourself is that you get to decide what to do and where to spend your time. Since the three amigos (Charlie, Brian and Gary) who own Altus Brands all live in different parts of the country we spend a lot of time (too much time?) talking on the phone, swapping stories and sending each other interesting articles and links to videos. We tend to do the same thing with our pro staff. We do it because it is fun, makes us laugh and sometimes we even learn a thing or two about a thing or two. One day, the light bulb went off and one of us (we’re not really sure which one) said “we should share these stories and video links with people who come to our web site”. The idea for a blog with a little bit of vlog was born. Since then we have been saving interesting links to stories, videos and photos that we thought you might enjoy. Every week or two we will update our post with some of our favorites. We have asked our pro staffers to join in the fun. We would love to post your stories or videos or pictures on these pages too. Just email them to us and we will post them on either proears.com, casscreek.com, phantomcalls.com (Extreme Dimension), benchmasterusa.com or bughat.com. We hope you enjoy!
