Start a New Hobby this Labor Day Weekend

Start a New Hobby this Labor Day Weekend

Welding is a challenging and rewarding field of work as well as a fun hobby that can have some advantages.  The experts at Pro Weld would love to help you with your complex welding projects.  However, knowing how to weld can be a huge help for simple welding projects around the house.  Here are some ways to learn welding as a hobby:

  1. 1. Attend a welding class at a local community college- most community colleges offer inexpensive welding classes that anyone can register for.  It may be smart to visit the campus and tour the facilities.  Furthermore, ask the instructors a few questions about the course and what skills you will be able to accomplish upon completion.
  2. Hobby Welding

    Community College Welding Classes are a great way to learn how to Weld

  3. 2. Learn on your own. After gathering the proper equipment, including safety apparel, begin clearing your work area. Be sure you have a clean, dry, and level surface that is heat resistant and nonflammable. Next, begin familiarizing yourself with your welding equipment while they aren’t powered, to avoid injury. Once you feel comfortable begin practicing, following safety procedures.
  4. Hobby Welding

    Teaching yourself to Weld can be extremely helpful around the house

  5. 3. Seek out a Professional Welder that can show you the basics. Do you have a friend or family member that is a welder? If not, then you could try approaching local fabrication shops to see if anyone would be willing to show you the ropes.  Some welding shops even offer apprenticeship programs to teach prospective welders.
  6. Hobby Welding

    Professional Welders are experts at their craft and can help you learn how to Weld

Welding is a fun, active hobby for many people and the time you have off for Labor Day weekend may be the perfect time to begin learning the ins and outs of welding.   Remember, if you ever run into a project that is above your skill level Pro Weld has welding experts with extensive experience that can tackle any project you have.

5 Secrets to Running a Successful Small Business

5 Secrets to Running a Successful Small Business

In any industry there are specific ways to get the advantage over competition, like how Pro Weld focusses on the quality of every single weld instead of rushing to boost the quantity of products produced.  There are also some secrets to running a small business in any industry.  Success of a business is not an accident, it is seeing what others in your industry do not see, then acting on that knowledge. Here are 5 secrets that will help you succeed in any industry:

  1. The Pro Weld team used welding secrets when helping the community when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Medford, Oregon.

    The Pro Weld team helping the community when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Medford, Oregon.

    1) Know how to delegate tasks and manage your own time.  In a small business the inclination is to do everything your self, but to succeed you need to be able to trust those that you put on your team.

  2. 2) Appreciate all every good thing that comes out of running your own business, no matter how small.  If you feel fulfillment from what you are doing for a living you will be more productive, and it will spread to everyone working around you!
  3. 3) Give back to your community in every way that you can.  This could include employing people in your community, or being a part of a project that helps people, an example of this is when Pro Weld helped when Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to Medford, Oregon.  When you give back to the community it is not just good public relations, it will also give you the chance to build real relationships with others in your community.     

    Small businesses should have a goal of steady growth

    Small businesses should have a goal of steady growth

  4. 4) Don’t grow your business too fast, because it can lead to a multitude of problems.  Business growth should be done at a rate that you are able to keep up with.
  5. 5) Praise your employees in public, this will increase their confidence and make them actually want to work for you.  The other side of this is to criticize their work in private.  No one wants to be called out in public, and consistently doing this will decrease an employee’s motivation to do well in tasks that are assigned to them.

All of us at Pro Weld hope that these business secrets will drive your company to future success!

How Success is Grown in Life


Pro Weld poster on how good roots grow success

Pro Weld has become a successful welding company in Medford, Oregon since starting up business back in 1993.

How Success is Grown in Life

Pro Weld always strives for success, and their owner’s efforts have been rewarded through honors such as the 2005 Excellence in Family Business Award.  Success is not something that people stumble into, it takes persistence.  The famous phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day,” works well with this idea of how success is built.  As it did not take just one day to build Rome, it takes hard work, perseverance, and grit to do well in just about any activity.  Professional athletes spend years training their bodies to compete for awards and the honors that they obtain.  Expert welders practice their trade, and just like any other activity, they learn more each day.  As a plant needs a solid root system to grow, we need a solid base to build up to our potential.  A characteristic, like being a hard worker, is a good base to build success on.  

All of us a Pro Weld hope that you enjoyed reading, and hope to hear from you!
