    Just as tractor drives a PTO driven pump or equipment, you and your employees drive your business. When you exhibit a passionate work ethic, not only will you personally succeed, but your employees will feed of of your drive, and they and your business will benefit from your leading.

  2. Connect.

    Every PTO piece of equipment from pumps to generators must be linked to their power source. Similarly, you must be able to connect with your employees to power your company forward. If you are a poor communicator, then hire one.

  3. Selection.

    Just like with any pump or piece of equipment, you get what you pay for. Be prepare to pay good employees well. A good employee will pay you back many times over.

  4. Knowledge.

    Your business knowledge is what separates you from your competition. Make sure that you not only are constantly learning by attending tradeshows and classes, but also make sure that you retain that knowledge by retaining your employees.

  5. Traction.

    Just as a tractor has treads to keep it from slipping, you must constantly monitor the vitals of your business to make sure that your business is not slipping. Do not allow complacency to enter any part of your business. Your business should always move forward in every area from profits and pay to market penetration. Keep traction and always move forward.

  6. Verify.

    Is your business in proper working order. A simple walk through can keep your business safe from oversights that may plague your competitors.

  7. Maintain.

    Just as the equipment we sell needs maintaining to keep it running properly, our business also needs to be checked out to verify that everything is proper working order. By making adjustments periodically to your equipment or you business itself, you will preclude yourself from experiencing catastrophic failure.
