I am motivated by my family. We have worked together for 40 years and my Dad started the family business to make sure his sons had a trade to earn a living with. I lost my Dad to brain cancer last year and it prompted my move to Texas. I had been working in California for the family business while the wife was here in Texas. I was where I needed to be to care for my Dad and my wife was here in San Antonio, caring for her Dad.
Mister Sparky was the closest alternative to working for my family business. There was a sense of integrity from the time of application I did not see elsewhere.
