Hi, my name is… Tamra Wyman
My company & title is… Wyman Plumbing & Mechanical LLC
A typical day in my life includes… Enjoying an early A.M. cup of coffee on the couch with my husband, Doug, talking about the day. Then we both begin to work. After a day at work, we end the day with a workout in our garage gym and find something to do with the family whether it be swimming, dirt biking, playing a game or watching a movie.
My favorite thing about living/working in the North Valley is…how much it feels like a community.We both grew up in a small town of 1,200 people in Colorado and though we moved to one of the largest counties in the U.S.A., being in the North Phoenix Valley feels more like a small, tight knit community. We have come to know our customers, fellow business owners and neighbors, and no matter whether we eat out or go grocery shopping, we run into friends.
My favorite movie I could never get tired of watching and why… For some reason, I’ve never had an all time favorite movie. My husband’s is hands down “Tombstone.” I enjoy many actors and genres. My favorites are action, comedy and western. The Rambo saga, 3:10 to Yuma, The Magnificent Seven, Open Range, *any* (I repeat ANY) John Wayne Movie and The Expendables to name a few.
My family… husband Doug, son Erik, daughter Jilli, son Henry and daughter Allie. We all have a lot of fun together camping, riding dirt bikes, swimming and exploring.
The business lesson I learned the hard way is… All of them. But the important thing is to LEARN from them and find ways to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I think learning the hard way helps it “stick” in mind longer, too!
One thing I cannot live without is… My workouts and music! I absolutely love lifting weights and losing myself in my music. I’ve always loved country dancing, too, but have lived without that since kids.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a veterinarian!
The song I would sing at Karaoke night is…The Devil Went Down to Georgia by The Charlie Daniels Band.
The one person who motivates me is… my husband. He’s my rock and my beacon that shines in the dark. I love his work ethic, his morals, his empathy, how he can set goals then stick to them and how has the patience of a saint. He sets so many examples that I try to follow for myself.
The last thing that made me laugh out loud was…Definitely my youngest daughter. She says the most random things.
The perfect day would be… Enjoying my husband’s company exploring the deserts, lakes or the mountains.
My first job was… Working in my dad’s wood shop as a pre-teen, but outside family business it was actually working for a plumbing supply store. Little did I know I’d marry a plumber and own a plumbing company!
My life…is filled with family, running a business, raising kids, health/fitness routine and still trying to make time for me. I’m currently working on… staying positive, being the best version of myself and remembering to “slow down” in life and help those around me.
The best gift I’ve ever received was…The most memorable was a Christmas gift my parents gave me when I was very young – a horse!
My dream vacation would be to… try out one of those beach vacations at an exotic place or go escape to the mountains during the summer.
My words of wisdom to aspiring business owners… Take a leap of faith. Do not doubt yourself. If you think you can or you can’t – you’re probably right. Where there is a will, there is a way. You can’t build a business from the ground if you don’t have the “whatever it takes” mentality. Stay positive, build a business plan, work the hours and put in all the hard work. If it were easy, everyone would do it.
