Making AsktheBuilder.com Better

Last-Minute Meet Up in LA!

This is NOT a normal newsletter in case you signed up in the past 72 hours.

I needed to do a quick announcement about an upcoming trip and meet up. A meet up is a chance for you and I to just kick back and get to know one another. They're free, fun and all it costs you is your time.

I'll be in Los Angeles next Wednesday. Yesterday on my AsktheBuilder Facebook Fan Page, I announced a meet up in the foothills just northwest of Pasadena.


Next Wednesday, March 30th, I'll be in Montrose, CA at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf store at the intersection of Ocean View and Honolulu Avenues right in the heart of downtown Montrose, CA. Let's shoot for 1:00 pm. If you don't want coffee, there's a great ice cream store around the corner we can walk to.

I'm trying to get a friendly competitor of mine, Don Vandervort, to be there as well. If I can pull him out of his office just down the street, you'll have two home-improvement experts in the room. What a deal!

You can come to just relax and chat or bring photos of a project you need help with.

Please email me back and tell me if you're coming. If too many respond, we may have to move to another venue that can handle everyone.

Great Cordless Circular Saw

I just wanted to mention that over the past month, I've been using my Milwaukee Cordless Circular Saw during my kitchen remodel job. It's a fantastic saw and cuts very accurately. What I love about it is how it has virtually no vibration.

I've decided to start a new series of videos on how I use tools. I figured these may help you in case you struggle to use certain tools or want to get professional results. You can bet you'll see this saw of mine in a few videos!

How Can AsktheBuilder.com Be Better?

It's time for an extreme makeover of the AsktheBuilder website. I want and NEED your help. After all, the website's a tool that you use and it should be comfortable, helpful and easy to navigate.

So tell me, if you could wave a magic wand and AsktheBuilder.com was yours, what would you do to make it a perfect website?

I've created a survey page that allows you to respond to questions and add comments.

The BEST part is I have a gift  for you. Complete the survey and you get a 15% discount promo code for ANYTHING at my store. The promo code only can be used once and it expires in a week. (Ending date: April 1, 2011) Use it on as many things as you want, but you need to buy them now.

Oh, reminder! If you use the promo code to get Stain Solver, note that the OLD sizes are in LIMITED supply. If you see an out-of-stock message, it just means that you'll never see that size again.

For example, one of our most popular sizes the 8-pounder - well, there are LESS than 200 of those left. I expect them to be gone forever in just days. If you want one of those, you better act now.

I'll have another short newsletter next week while I'm on the road! I may do another meet up in Austin, TX the first week of April. Anyone up for that?

Thanks for subscribing and reading my newsletter!
