want to fool with doing small projects around the house.
They don't have time.
(If they do have time, they would
rather be doing something else.)
If you do quality work and do what you say you will (show
up, return phone calls, etc)
just about charge what you want to!
I can't tell you how many time I have been told by a
"I don't care what it costs, just please come do it.
You're the only person who has even returned my call!"
Customers get fed up.
They've called all kinds of people
to try and get small projects done.
No one will call them back or if they do get a call back it's weeks
What does this mean to you??

What's a typical day like in our
It's starting a typical Tuesday morning. My cell
phone rings (I've got my office phone forwarded to my cell).
The person calling is a friend of
a lady we've done work for a few weeks ago.
The lady we did the work for was so happy with what we did for
her (we put up some crown molding in her dining room) I think
she's told everyone she knows about our handyman business.
This friend of hers wants to know if I have time to do a tile
backsplash in her kitchen before a party she's having this
I told her I'd have to take a look at it but I didn't think it
would be a problem. Once I arrive she tells me that she's called
two other contractors and neither has returned her call.
After giving her a price she tells me to go ahead and do the job
as soon as I can.
She also asks me if I can put up some "grab bars" in a bathroom
for her mother who is elderly and stills lives by herself.
While I'm at the local big box home improvement store, picking
up the grab bars, there's an older gentleman there looking at
I give him a business card and he
wants me to install a set of them at his house.
(we do a lot of work for older people)
As I'm leaving the store I get another call from a plumber I
use. (He refers work to me and I use him for all the plumbing we
need) He has a lady who wants a bathroom remodeled and like
everyone else she wants it done yesterday....
Before the days over I get several other calls. Two calls from
people wanting me to do jobs I've given them a price on and
several other calls wanting me to take a look at various
projects for them.
The day I've just outlined is not uncommon at all for me. We end
up being booked for a couple of weeks out at time doing all
sorts of things from tile jobs to installing crown molding,
painting, drywall repairs and more.
This has turned out to be one of
the best businesses I've ever been involved in.
