Corey Geiler: Self-Reliance
"When you’re self-reliant, it gives you a higher level of motivation, which you don’t always have when you’re working for someone else.”

NAPA − In his own words, Corey Geiler didn’t choose a career in the plumbing industry; rather, it chose him. “There aren’t a lot of people who dream of becoming a plumber one day,” he laughs. “It’s just something that gradually came to be. I started off digging ditches and doing landscape irrigation for a friend who owned a landscaping company, and from there I segued into plumbing. Eventually, I started doing plumbing projects on the side, and before I knew it, I had enough experience to get my license.”

Today, as owner of Eco Plumbing by Geiler, Corey says he enjoys the perks of being his own boss. “It’s nice to have control of both my daily schedule and professional future. When you’re self-reliant, it gives you a higher level of motivation, which you don’t always have when you’re working for someone else.” Additionally, Corey says he enjoys his day-to-day interactions with customers. “I’m a people person, and I’ve always enjoyed helping others, so it’s very fulfilling to have a chance to do that every day.”

Originally from Texas, Corey resides today in Napa with his wife, Debbie, and their three children. Looking back, he recounts the spontaneous circumstances of their northwestern migration. “Debbie and I were visiting her parents in Napa, and we liked it so much that we quit our jobs, packed up our RV, and moved here within three months. It was right in the middle of a recession, too, and I didn’t have a job lined up, so it was quite a leap of faith.”

Outside of work, Corey spends the bulk of his free time with his family. “We like to go on adventures, whether it’s boating in the Napa Valley Marina, camping in the woods or exploring San Francisco,” he says. “We also like going on road trips with our pop-up camper. We once took it all the way from Napa to Montana, then to Texas and back.” When they aren’t roving the countryside, Corey and his family enjoy local pastimes like dirt biking and playing music. “My kids and I all play instruments, so we like having family jam sessions.”

In his life and career, Corey espouses the importance of clear communication. “A lot of people aren’t good at communicating with others, but you’d be surprised what you can accomplish with a timely phone call…especially if you’re running late and someone is waiting on you,” he says. “In regard to business, it can make the difference between keeping and losing a job, which is why I always go the extra mile to answer calls and touch base with my clients.”

When asked the first thing he’d do if he could retire tomorrow, Corey says he would spend more time with his family. “I’d be a stay-at-home dad. That would give me a chance to spend more time with my kids. I’d also do more of the same things I already enjoy, like camping, fishing and traveling.”
