LIFE IN AMERICA

There are many analogies of Life In America. For the purpose of this blog, America is going to viewed as a restaurant vs a cafeteria.

In a restaurant, you go in and sit at a table and someone comes and takes your order and brings you what you ordered.

In a cafeteria, you start at the beginning and pick out what you want and at the end you will find out what it costs.

So, we prefer to say that Life In America is a cafeteria. You can get anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. You can even get success. But you’ll never get it, if you wait for someone to bring it to you. As in a cafeteria, you have to get up and get it.

LEADERSHIP

Leadership

A common demonstration of leadership is to place a piece of string on a table. Pull it, and it’ll will follow you. Push it, and it goes nowhere at all.

Leadership isn’t something that comes automatically just because you have people working for you. If people have to be forced to follow directions, then you are failing as a leader. Leadership depends on the ability to make people want to follow your instructions voluntarily. People who are successful leaders work to inspire their people to make them want to cooperate.

Effective leaders realize that they receive the best efforts from their people by working with them and helping them do their best and be more productive.

Most people want to do a good job as long as they feel appreciated. Good Leadership will be rewarded by your associates always trying to do their best. There might be a few who need to be watched and be reminded to get on the ball. The fewer is always the better.

The need for little pushing usually indicates good leadership.

IT IS HARD

It is hard: to forget, to apologize, to save money, to be unselfish, to avoid mistakes, to stay out of a rut, to start all over again, to make the best of all things, to keep your temper, to think first and act later, to maintain a high standard, to keep on keeping on, to take the blame, to be charitable, to admit an error, to take advice, to forgive and the list goes on.

But It Pays !!

INDEPENDENCE DAY

Obviously, Independence Day, the Fourth of July, is the day the United States commemorates its Declaration of Independence. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject and subordinate to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free and independent states.

This day historically has been marked by various activities. Among them parades, celebrations, baseball games, reunions and firework displays. With all that has happened over the past few months, some if not all of these aforementioned activities may not take place. We are facing trying times, times that will challenge the very fabric of America.

We should not forget this fact, that this day marked the beginning of a long and bloody conflict to gain the Independence that our founding Fathers felt was so very important. It is what became the American Way of Life and what was so eloquently stated in The Constitution.

The fact that not everyone agrees with what everyone else says is what makes America great. The fact that we are free to disagree, the fact that we are free to voice our opinion and the fact that we are free to live our lives as we see fit. As long as we do so with honor and respect of all others and within the confines of the law.

So as you participate in whatever you have planned for this day, take a moment to be thankful for what you have and the fact that you live in The United States of America.

God Bless America!!

WILLIAM F. BANE

Today would have been the 94th Birthday for William F. Bane.

So we are devoting today’s blog in honor of him. Please take a few moments to read Mr. Bane’s obituary below.

We appreciate you joining us in honoring his memory.

The Bane-Clene® Family.


William Francis Bane June 25, 1927 - February 20, 2014

William F. Bane

William Francis Bane passed away February 20th, 2014 at 9:40 PM surrounded by his devoted family. A lifelong resident of Indianapolis, Bill led a noteworthy and successful life both privately and publicly. He was a loving and devoted husband to his wife, a caring and nurturing father to his sons and Pawpaw to his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bill was also an admired community leader and entrepreneur who led a successful business for over half his life, and who rose to a position of prominence within his industry.

Born June 25, 1927 and orphaned as a child, he was raised by his maternal grandparents, Erven and Frances Ryle. Growing up in the Depression, he learned the value of hard work and the importance of self-reliance, innovation, and motivation. His many positive qualities were further enhanced by his Catholic upbringing and education at Holy Cross Grade School and Cathedral High School.

After graduation, Bill bravely embraced his love of country and enlisted in the Marine Corps to help defend his nation during World War II. A true member of the ‘Greatest Generation’, he also volunteered and participated in the Korean conflict. While stationed in Philadelphia, PA after World War II, he met his bride to be Elizabeth Ann on a blind date. They were married on April 26th 1947 and the couple would have celebrated a happy and blessed 67th year of marriage.

In 1950, Bill and wife Elizabeth returned to Indianapolis as proud parents of their first son, Bill, Jr. Their second son Donald was born shortly thereafter, and the family has continued to call Indianapolis home since that time.

Following the return to Indianapolis, Bill helped to care for his ailing grandmother and began a career as a tanker truck driver for Gaseteria, a petroleum company. He later worked for Brink’s armored car service where he rose in ranks to the management level at the Indianapolis branch. With heavy heart, he resigned from Brink’s in late 1961 as further advancement meant moving his family to another part of the country and away from the city that his family called home.

Shortly after leaving Brink’s, Bill explored business opportunities that would allow him to create his own success and that might allow his family to become part of his endeavors. Seeing a need for janitorial services, he started The Wm. F. Bane Company on February 4th, 1962. The company grew and in 1967 added a commercial and residential carpet cleaning division. Recognizing the success of this aspect of his business, he divested the janitorial service division and focused the fledgling firm entirely on carpet cleaning.

While operating the carpet cleaning service, Bill recognized that improvements to the efficiency and quality of the cleaning process could propel the industry forward. His entrepreneurial spirit and innovation led him to produce the first “Truck Mounted” carpet cleaning machine in 1970, for which he later received a patent for the unique design and application.

Dedicated to his vision, in 1974 Bill launched Bane-Clene® Systems, focused on the production and sale of Carpet Cleaning Equipment, Chemicals and Supplies. The service and supply divisions were incorporated into one entity, Bane-Clene® Corporation in 1980. The successful firm that Bill began in 1962 celebrated its 52nd anniversary this year, with Bill still active as Board Chairman.

Under his guidance and charismatic leadership, the growing business attained worldwide recognition in the Carpet Cleaning Industry and Bill was an active speaker and evangelist for the cleaning methods he developed. His leadership and business acumen helped launch thousands of independent networked affiliates worldwide, and true to his original vision his wife and sons have remained active participants in the company, still managing its day-to-day operation.

In addition to his business success, Bill was an active civic leader, serving as President of the Meadows/Fall Creek Civic League. He worked tirelessly to promote the area and later achieved an Enterprise Zone designation which opened up business opportunities for others in the area. He was also an active member of American Legion Post #3 where he served as Commander.

Outside his professional and civic endeavors, Bill loved the game of baseball. As a noteworthy young ballplayer, he had been scouted by several major league teams. As a father, he coached his sons in Little League baseball, where he taught them the attributes of sportsmanship and teamwork. Organizationally, Bill developed and managed multiple Championship teams in American Legion Baseball, Connie Mack and Junior Baseball.

Later in life, his competitive nature turned to golf. He enjoyed his time on the links with family, friends and associates at Hillcrest Country Club. His golfing buddies at Hillcrest were affectionately known as the R.O.B.’s and they enjoyed many great times together. Bill won more than one Club Tournament and realized the dream of every golfer, a “hole in one”.

Later in life, Bill and Elizabeth enjoyed wintering at their second home in St. Pete, FL. From there, they loved to visit nearby Disney World in Orlando, a special place where they enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Their love for the ‘Fort Wilderness’ area of the resort inspired Bill to develop and personally execute a grand vision of his own nature park at their home in Indianapolis. Now successfully transformed into a beautiful five-acre nature sanctuary, this park, complete with paths, bridges, lakes and landscaping is a beautiful reminder of the man who created it. Even in late 2013 and toward the end of his life, Bill could be found creating pathways and clearing land on his trusty tractor, his vision always expanding. Over the years, they cared for dozens of pets on the property and loved observing the wildlife attracted to the beautiful grounds.

Bill left an amazing legacy for those that follow him. Whether in private, professional, or civic endeavors, he was a successful leader with vision and motivation to follow through on his dreams. He will be greatly missed by the thousands of friends, associates, and acquaintances he leaves behind, but most of all by his dedicated family who has remained with him throughout his prominent life.

He is survived by his spouse of 67 years (Elizabeth), sons Wm. F. Bane, Jr. (significant other Denise Pettigrew), Donald Allen (Linda Faye), several grandchildren and great grandchildren. Special mention is made for loyal caregiver and family friend, retired RN Lynn Kinz, who was able to manage in-home hospice care at the end of his life.

In accordance with his final wishes, a private service is planned with interment in the family mausoleum at Crown Hill Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to the St. Augustine’s Little Sisters of the Poor (2345 West 86th St., Indianapolis, IN 46260, Phone 317-415-5767) which was the favorite charity of his and his grandmother.

FATHER’S DAY

Father’s Day is June 20th. It is a day to mark and celebrate the contribution that our Fathers have made in our lives. Many people send or give cards or gifts. These gifts are often related to their Father’s hobbies or interests.

Father’s Day is a relatively modern holiday, so different families have a range of traditions. Besides cards or gifts, many Fathers receive a phone call, if circumstances prevent a family from being together. If families can get together, activities may revolve around church, since the day is Sunday. Many families will have parties or outings that honor all the Father figures in their extended family. These Father figures include fathers, step-fathers, fathers-in-law, grandfathers and great grand fathers.

Fathers Day

Happy Father’s Day !!

INFLATION GAUGE

Obviously there is a lot of talk about inflation. Is it just talk? Or is it real and inevitable?

The pandemic ravaged the economy. The government has poured trillions of dollars into the economy in the form of stimulus checks, increased unemployment benefits and a myriad of other economic stimuli.

These have certainly helped, but in their wake will there be an inflationary cycle? Depending on what you read and what you find reliable, there are differing viewpoints.

The prudent course to take is to chart your own Inflation Gauge based upon products and services you regularly use. You should include food, gasoline, postage, local fees and taxes. Federal tax has already increased on cell phones and land lines. These are “hidden” taxes and there are and will be many others.

While it may be difficult in these current economic times, it may be necessary to raise your prices. Don’t let everyday cost increases sneak up on you and eat into profits.

Monitor your situation closely by establishing your Inflation Gauge.

TO REPAIR OR NOT TO REPAIR

That is the question! It obviously relates to many items in either your home or business.

To Repair or Not to Repair?

Relevant to this blog, we will correlate it to a Service Vehicle. When a service vehicle is involved in a traffic accident, the decision has to be made To Repair or Not To Repair.

Based upon the age of the vehicle, your insurance company will establish an ACV (“actual cash value”). That value then becomes the bench mark upon which the insurance company will decide if the vehicle is considered “totaled”. An insurance company may decide the vehicle is totaled even if it can be fixed. Generally speaking, the company decides to total the vehicle if the cost to repair it exceeds a certain percentage of its value, typically between 51% up to 80%. Actually some states mandate or provide guidelines for this percentage.

Factoring in all of this, the decision To Repair or Not To Repair may be taken out of your hands. Also, you will want to consider this fact. If you have only one vehicle, then you are “shut down”. So, it may behoove you to accept the company’s offer and move forward.

Bottom line, know your rights. If you feel this “settlement” is not fair, then ask for a repair estimate from an independent source. Based upon your policy, you may be entitled to “loss of revenue” and extra expense reimbursement needed to get you back up and running.

Hopefully, you will never be faced with the decision To Repair or Not To Repair.

MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY MAY 31, 2021

Before we reflect on the history and meaning of Memorial Day, let us take time to remember all those who have died due to the pandemic that has swept our country. Without the leadership, courage, dedication and sacrifices of many, the number of deaths would have been far greater.

The custom of honoring those who have fallen in battle by cleaning and decorating graves is an ancient and worldwide tradition. It was originally called “Decoration Day”.

In early rural America, this duty was usually done in late summer and became an occasion for family reunions. After the “Civil War”, the practice became more prominent as America’s need for a patriotic ceremony to honor its military dead. After “WW I”, the day was expanded to honor those who had died in all American Wars. The tradition of wearing red Poppies as a symbol of this day was actually the idea of an American, Miss Moina Michael, who became known as the “Poppy Lady”.

The holiday, which is now observed on the last Monday of May, was originally observed on May 30th. It is considered the unofficial start of Summer. One of the longest standing traditions is the running of “The Indianapolis 500” which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911. It will be run May 30th, 2021.

The preferred name for the holiday gradually changed from “Decoration Day” to “Memorial Day”, first used in 1882. However, it only became the most common name after “WW II” and was not declared a Federal Holiday until 1967. While the passing of an act in 1968 created 3 day weekends for Memorial Day and other holidays, it has also no doubt contributed to a general nonchalant observance by some people for this important day.

We at Bane-Clene® do not take that nonchalant attitude. We realize that our great country is just that because of the dedication and countless sacrifices of the men and women who have fought and died to keep us,

The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Memorial Day

BEING KNOWN ANOTHER WAY

On April 30, 2021 we posted Blog #274 regarding “Being Known”. We received some comments, so it was decided to write a follow up to it.

In that Blog, we talked about the telephone being the “door” to your business. One reader wrote this account.

“Another door” to a business in today’s digital world is often via a Company website, FaceBook, FaceBook Groups, Blogs, Google Maps, Google My Business, LinkedIn, Twitter and a myriad of other social sites.

A company is often Being Known Another Way not only by the aforementioned methods but also by recommendations from friends, neighbors and co-workers. Our reader continued his story. He needed a plumber, so he checked Facebook Groups for his neighborhood and for his city to see what experiences others had and whom they would recommend. After checking the web sites for a few of those recommended, one was picked that showed images of similar before and after work of the services needed. Rather than call the business, a website contact form was filled out to set up an appointment. Appointment information, estimated pricing and confirmation was done via text messages.

So here you have two methods of Being Known - the more personal way via telephone and what some feel is the more direct way via website and text messages.

In today’s world, it is advisable to be able to provide answers and service either way.

As a follow-up to the reader’s story, he posted to Facebook Groups for his area what a good job the plumber did, how professional he was, how reasonable the cost was and highly recommended him. Facebook Groups showed that 32 people in the area had seen and “liked” his recommendation! Recommendations like that boost and add sales to your business!

According to a 2015 Nielsen survey, the most credible form of advertising comes straight from the people we know and trust.

According to a recent article, one out of every three Facebook users, or approximately 800 million people, use their platform for reviews and recommendations. Additionally, two out of three users, about 1.6 billion people, visit the page of a local business every week.

Here’s how Facebook describes it
Recommendations: Your customers are your best ambassadors. When people look for places to eat, shop, or book a service, they often ask their friends and families where to go. That’s why we’re making it easier for people to recommend your business by bringing Recommendations to your Page. People will now be able to post a recommendation for your business, including text, photos, and tags directly on your Page. And recommendations will also help you reach people while they’re searching for or talking about your business.

BIG ISN’T ALWAYS BETTER

Yellow Pages Logo

This is an often used statement to describe various entities, government agencies, companies and a myriad of other things.

There are obviously a number of media options available when it comes to advertising. Among these are Radio, Television, Newspapers, Magazines, Yellow Pages and the Internet. Certainly a few of these have seen diminished relevance in the digital age. For example, Yellow Page ads have shrunk through the years but you should consider at the minimum a bold line listing. This gives you more prominence whether someone still uses the book or accesses the web site of the provider.

It is difficult to hold the line on advertising expenses. Many advertising outlets have automatic increases that kick in. Others are trying to “sell” you on the concept of having the biggest presence in their particular medium. This is where Big Isn’t Always Better.

Prudently evaluate and budget your advertising expense. Don’t overspend; conversely, do not under spend. As always the “cheapest” and best form of advertising is repeat and referral business.

Remember Big Isn’t Always Best. However, Being The Best Is Always Best.

Mother's Day

Mother’s Day will be celebrated on May 9, 2021, in The United States of America and many other countries around the world.

It is an honoring of the Mother of a family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence mothers have had and continue to have on our society.

Mother’s Day can trace its roots to ancient Greek, Roman and Christian traditions. Also, Native Americans believe in the tradition of Mother Earth. All of these traditions have taken on their own type of celebration and recognition.

The modern Mother’s Day began in the USA in 1911. In 1914, Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation designating Mother’s Day as a national holiday which would be recognized on the second Sunday of May.

The Bane-Clene® family sends our love and blessings to Mothers everywhere.

Happy Mothers Day

BEING KNOWN

It is a common phrase that “we are known by the company we keep”.

We are looking at two words in that phrase, “known” and “company”.

No one will dispute the value of cultivating satisfied and loyal customers. Also for a company to grow, its name must be known. Your Company name in your ads provides an easy reference for your services and for your Company name being known.

The telephone is the “door” to your business. Every call is a potential sale. How your phone is answered therefore becomes very important. If your main telephone number is a land line, then calls are answered with the Company name announced; therefore, the Company is being known. However, in these times, many small businesses phones are answered via a mobile phone. No business line should be answered by just saying a person’s name. If the call goes to voice mail, then the message should identify the Company by name. Not by a phone number or just a person’s name.

The way your telephone is answered conveys your Company’s first impression to a caller. Strive to make that first impression something that leaves your Company being known.

PROFITS FROM DISASTERS

House on Fire

Spring is here. With it comes potentially heavy rains, flooding, etc. There are also fires and other events that create opportunities for service work. These are certainly tragic and there are rightfully feelings of compassion for the victims. That said, these disasters can be very profitable.

But those profits will come only if the Company is properly prepared with the necessary equipment, chemicals, personnel, etc. Disaster service can disrupt routine scheduling and will require public relation skills since the customer has suffered a traumatic event. Many times the customer wants “new” rather than cleaned and or restored. That is the role of the Insurance Adjuster to negotiate with the customer, so the Company may remain neutral.

Once again, if the Company is properly prepared, organized and staffed, there are Profits From Disasters.

SHOULD YOU HIRE A CPA?

Money Roll

The Income tax filing date for 2021 has been extended to May 17 for most individuals, with some exceptions. A majority of Carpet Cleaning Companies fall into the category.

There are many changes to the tax laws being proposed. If you have not done so in the past, then now may be a good time to seek the advice and counsel of a CPA to oversee your business’ accounting operations.

A good CPA will not technically cost you anything. Instead, you should recognize savings by taking advantage of all allowable deductions and other tax law advantages.

Finally, they will keep you out of trouble with the IRS as they will have you file accurate returns on time.
