All-Safe Pest & Termite’s Story
Who would ever expect three kids to give them the idea of a lifetime? All-Safe Pest & Termite’s founder, Jim Schumacher, gives full credit to his kids for starting his business.
In 1984, after losing a V.P. position with an international corporation, Schumacher says he discovered he wasn’t nearly as important as he thought he was. Ironically, the unwelcome change came at an important time.
When the family’s two older children enrolled in college, Schumacher and his wife, with their five year old, started a dream adventure. They took their 37-foot sailboat, Goody Two Shoes, for an extended cruise. Ninety-nine percent of the time, the cruise was “paradise visited” but there was one very humbling storm at sea.
Early in the cruise they were caught in 77-knot winds and took a direct lightning hit which destroyed their electronics, including all navigation equipment. After making port and repairing the boat, Schumacher realized that he could not ask his family to continue on this macho adventure. It looked as if the dream had abruptly ended…in a flash, so to speak.
Then his wife, Pat, probably more as a result of her farm-girl childhood than any real analysis of their situation, exclaimed, “We do have all this food, let’s go on!” What a first mate! When it was time to return to the real world, their two college kids had done some research to get their Dad back in the job market, or as he interprets it, “to protect their own lifestyle.”
“Good thing they were concerned,” adds Schumacher. “What I viewed as a noble, heroic adventure was perceived as being a bit flaky by my corporate peers. We were blessed that the kids had made their observation that low-toxic pest control was the 'in thing' in Florida and did not exist in Texas at the time.”
Schumacher did his own research, liked what he saw, and founded All-Safe Pest & Termite. He recruited Don Wilson from Terminix® to become All-Safe’s G.M. All-Safe has since become a major player in the local market, servicing residential and commercial properties throughout the area.
Schumacher says, “In spite of the obvious drawbacks, I recommend that anyone forced to re-evaluate their career step back and put things in perspective. The author of Golden Parachute doesn’t agree with this position, but I have found there is much more to life than a prestigious corporate position. It has been years since I have had a really bad day unless you consider the short putts I missed.”
“Long hours of hard work are enjoyable if you have the right people around you. We have been very fortunate to have good technicians who are also good people. That’s our real secret to having ‘good customers’. I know we are on the right path when we have our growth rate and have most of our new customers coming from referrals. When I think of our employee’s families and the number of customers who depend on All-Safe, I get more satisfaction than I ever had as an executive in the world of corporate politics.”
Schumacher also enjoys not having to be too concerned about an All-Safe truck getting hit by lightning, and all their technicians know their way home without navigational gear.
