It started with a sweet elderly widow…
I have helped friends and family fix things around their house for quite a few years, but the thought of turning my handyman skills into a business seemed more of a pipe dream than a reality…that is, until I met Shirley.
Shirley had fairly recently lost her dear husband, who was also the handyman of the house, and her honey-do list was getting longer and longer. She had heard through the grapevine at the karate studio our daughter goes to that I was handy and had been considering starting a handyman business.
After doing a few jobs for her, I also started doing handy work at the karate studio itself and at the home of the owners of the studio and as I started getting more and more side jobs, the reality of turning this into a full time business became more real than ever.
In April of 2018, I left my corporate job to pursue my dream of being an entrepreneur and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I love helping people and working with my hands so going into business as a handyman was a no brainer!
