    It's occured to me that alot of us pests run our own businesses. Seting up at least a thread to network with seems like a good idea, to me at least. I know I'd rather help support a fellow Pest than give my business to a stranger. It's a bizzare community we have here, but a community nonetheless.
    For instance, I needed a delivery made in the N.Y./ N.J. area same day,so I called Pat from Moonachie to handle it for me. Why not help each other out as well as the show. I can't think of anyone (except O&A) that couldn't use more money.
    Myself and my family own an appliance sales and service store in Staten Island. I'm 3rd generation in the business, and if you let me know you're a fellow pest, I'll certainly take care of you. Here is a link to our website.

    As long as the admins dont mind us plugging our businesses, I don't see why we couldn't help each other out.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

    I think this is a great idea. Although I myself am not in a business where I can offer goods or services to fellow pests, I would definitely give my business to someone who I knew was a pest. I've seen the way pests/Wackbaggers rally together to help one another when they need it (Death of spouses, ect.) and think a lot of people here would patronize Pest-run businesses.

    Very cool idea. I've been considering starting my own hand-turned collectibles business for a few years and my wife is well on her way to starting a bakery down here. The right loan comes her way and I can see her starting from scratch.

    Well, what do the mods think about this? I'd post up my business serving Bergen, Passiac and Rockland counties.

    I own a landscaping business and I also sell title insurance in the winter. I'dd be happy to provide landscaping services to anyone on LI. and if anyone is a mortgage broker or attorney, I can do title insurance for you in NY.
    I would patronize any pest owned business that was near me. I think its a great idea.

    I think this is a fantastic idea.

    Kind of like the Mormons and how they only do business with each other. There's a big enough community here that it seems pointless to not give one another business.

    We could probably start by putting a link to this thread in our signatures, along the lines of "Patronize Pest Businesses" and people can add their own listings, or go through and find new ones and then a directory of services can be put together.

    I am a professional dog trainer specializing in basic and advanced obedience as well as behavior modification. We handle all breeds, sizes, and ages from puppy to adult. We are in the Tucson, AZ area. We have not started doing board and trains yet so I can't help you yet if you are out of state or in Phoenix, but I can refer you to some unbelievable trainers elsewhere, and I know at least one other trainer back east has posted on here but I can't remember his screen name. PM me if you want a referral or a link to our site.:action-sm

    PS. Does anyone know a good AC guy in Tucson that could swing me a decent deal? I need to get an ac unit installed in the next few weeks before the monsoon hits. I am willing to do a partial work trade.

    Seems like there is some serious interest in this kind of networking, maybe its own forum where people could post their services, businesses?

    I'ld rather support a Pest biz than someone I dont know.

    WOW! What a great idea. Unless you have a company that uses freight hauling such as large amounts of rock passing threw southern pa tho don't see where we would have a foot at .. since its not "our" business just whom my husband works for.

    I on the other hand am working on starting my own catering business. So if that would help anyone once its working i can post about that.

    I don't think there would be a problem with this as long as everyone understands that Wackbag.com does not endorse any business listed here and that any problems that should arise from using any business listed here should not be brought here. Aside from that, as long as the plugging stays in this thread, it should be ok.

    Thanks!!!!
    I've joined two local peer/networking groups in the past 3 years and have recieved numerous referrals from it. It especially helps in my business, where I'm up against the big box stores.
    Calling Pat from Moonachie for my delivery is what made the dim bulb over my head glow a little brighter for this idea.:icon_wink

    Hmm, I may hit you up for a goal. My kids have destroyed their other one. Was just going to order them one from Dicks, but they want way to much for shipping. If you can ship cheaper, I will go with you.
