From Four Differences to a Whole Manifesto

February 8, 2019

From Four Differences to a Whole Manifesto

Have you ever felt different?  Not just on the outside but on the inside you feel it somewhere deep down that perhaps you aren't like everyone else?  When I was younger that feeling scared me and I looked for ways to discredit it or make the differences less noticeable.  For example, I have wild curly hair that hints at a lot of other untamable and unruly traits about myself.  When I smooth it out I feel a little less wild and able to blend in more. But truth be told, I'm still the same on the inside.  Unruly as ever.  

Although, as I grow older I now find myself leaning into my differences more.  Relishing that same curly hair that makes a statement without me having to say a word.  In some form or fashion we all grow into our differences and recognize they become our strengths.  A source of power and sense of pride in our own uniqueness.  

We started Garman Homes and Fresh Paint with the 4 Garman Differences.  Our Garman Homes site has a whole page devoted to the differences and a video of me explaining each one.  If you click over there you'll see the hair in full effect.  #powertothecurlygirls

When we started the company, each difference felt like an act of rebellion.  At first glance these differences - Rock Stars Wanted, Guaranteed Closing Date, The G-Team and Give It Back -  may not seem all that different.  In fact, some may even feel like common sense, but I'm here to tell you they've set us on a course to show up differently everyday for 12 years. That's 4,380 days of different.  They are demonstrable, observable and quantifiable differences.  But even for as well articulated as we think they are, they don't even tell half the story of who we are, what we believe and why we build homes the way we do. 

For that, we wrote a Manifesto.  As a group, we went around the room offering one word at a time to describe who we want to be.  And then we put all the words together in a single Manifesto.  We loved it so much we even turned the words into art and had it painted on our newly remodeled office wall.  

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to feature excerpts from the Manifesto and explain what the excerpts mean to our business, to our buyers and to each other.  Why?  Because it's part of our story.  And if you choose to have us build you a home, in some way it becomes part of your story too.
