The HMI team recently conducted its first training seminar on concrete raising and leveling using either the traditional mudjacking method or our NEW polyurethane concrete lifting system. Participants came from varied walks of life and brought varied experiences to our headquarters in Manitowoc, WI. We enjoyed the participation of: engineers, entrepreneurs, current contractors, retired professionals and some folks who are about to retire.
WHY THEY CAME
– When asked why they came to the HMI seminar three main reasons were cited by participants:
1) Looking for a NEW business opportunity they can rely on Part Time or Full Time.2) Looking to ADD a service to an existing business.3) Looking to start a FAMILY business where they can invol

36 Years of Experience in 2 Days
I’ve been asked to give a 3 minute speech on the history of my companies for the introduction segment of our NEW upcoming TRAINING SEMINARS. WOW - did that request get me thinking. I laughed to myself thinking how I could probably talk “for hours” on how I got started in business or how I learned how to mudjack or what my business philosophy is and how it made me successful. I could pepper my talk with humorous stories of accidentally
spraying customers with mud or water, filling toilets with mud and some not so funny stories about pushing in basement walls or filling heating ducts with mud.
When if comes to giving this “3” minute speech (they will hav
FINALLY – “THE ANSWER”
I have been designing, building and selling mudjacking equipment for over 30 years. I have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs start their own business and support their families. Over time I have observed and participated in the evolution of an industry. From the beginnings when wheel barrow style pumps forced contractors to shovel material into a mixer to the development of self propelled units that mix material themselves, slabjacking has progressed with technology and innovation. Through all of the progress one constant roadblock remained – “a consistent dependable and economically feasible source of good pumping material. Finally– “ I have an answer

We are on our way to the World of Concrete 2010! I remember when we would wait to get the notice for the next year's conference and hope it would be somewhere exciting. Houston, Atlanta, Orlando, it was like winning
the trade show lottery. Now the show has exceeded any of those venues and we are headed to Las Vegas to learn what is new in the World of Concrete.
Always full of the newest products and methods, the World of Concrete is put on by Hanley-Wood and will no doubt out-do itself in 2010 as it has the past 30 years since we have been attending. This year we will bring a new product line of polyurethane concrete lifting equipment that is sure get some attention. Every aspect of concrete is covered which makes it a great plac
The question today is...how do you survive in Today's economy? The answer is
educate your self on what is working for other business facing the same struggles.
2008 was a great year. Business was great record sales were recorded and everyone was optimistic about the future. Then it happened, housing values took a nose dive, banks and insurance companies were in trouble and all the optimism disappeared. A new government came along and promised to change everything.
No, this is not going to be a blog about government, bail outs or a move toward socialism, but a comment on what it takes to survive in today’s business climate. The first step toward being successful is to stop listening to the news about how bad things are and how b
I’ve been in the mudjacking and mudpump manufacturing business for over 35 years. I figure it’s time to “give back” and share my knowledge with other entrepreneurs on how to successfully start a profitable mud jacking business.
I hope to educate others with my Blog posts. I recently read a blog post I found myself agreeing with at gaebler.comstarting a mudjacking company, in which the author covered several steps that a person looking to get into the mudjacking business should consider. The 4 main points that he covered were: locate competitors near you, know what you will offer that will provide an advantage over your competitors, learn form people in the business outside your area and ask yourself, will purchasing a franchise wo
