You can take our taxes but you can’t take our faith.
My dad and Grandpa started our business in 1972. We build custom cabinetry. Now into our 41st year I am taking over the business and we have changed the name from Webers Cabinets to Weber Company because we are now not only building cabinets but custom cutting boards too!
Taking over the family business (as a girl) is somewhat challenging because I am working in a male dominated profession. Since my grandpa passed away in 2008 our business has gone through some challenges with the recession lasting over the last 7 years. My dad (Mark), has so much experience in business (over 40 years since he started), and yet he could not explain or imagine the depth of this recession. I have learned from him that you must change with the times and put God first. So we pray together every morning, and we started making cutting boards because cabinet jobs were smaller and less. This way we have reinvented ourselves making new products to sell. My mom (Jeanette), helps out by giving great ideas on different styles of cutting boards we can make. She really wanted a board made in the shape of a heart, and it is one of our customer favorites!
