So why are we called Husky Moving? The name is kind of multifaceted for me.
My first dog that I ever owned was a Siberian Husky named "Samurai". When I pulled out her harness and she knew it was time to run she would go crazy with enthusiasm. Huskies are known for being able to do a tremendous amount of work and continue working long past the point of exhaustion. I always thought if I was going to choose an animal to represent my company, a Husky would be as good of a choice as any: intelligent, incredibly hard working, obstinate as all hell, and enthusiastic about the work in front of them.
So the word "Husky" to me is a reminder of where I come from, and a nod to my mom as well as Samurai. I consider my mother to be the person who molded me into who I am today, so it was important to me that I could always keep her influence involved in our company story somehow. It is a small reminder to me to stay humble and work hard because I am representing her values as well as my own.
The other reason is that when I was young I was always overweight. My mom always made a huge deal of telling me that I wasn't overweight but I was "big boned" as we were shopping in the "Husky" section of department stores.
It was her way of protecting my self esteem and watching over me as she has always done and continues to do. The word "Husky" has become a little bit of an inside joke between the two of us whenever I want to make fun of myself a bit.
