“I wish I had done this years ago. I have never been happier.”
I guess you could say it’s in my blood. I worked many jobs out of highschool, from factory, sales and even worked in the oil fields of North Dakota. But never had thought about starting my own business, until a little over a year ago.
I had been working management for a large home improvement retailer. I had worked my way up from sales. Helping first time “Do it Yourselfers” find what they need and walking them through their project, giving them the confidence and guidance, to complete their project, but as I moved up in management and away from the sales floor and working with customers, I no longer had the satisfaction I once felt. Feeling unhappy with my office job working endless hours and most weekends and holidays, I decided to take a risk and go out on my own, helping people love their home. I love it most, when homeowners want to help out and work beside me and take on some of the work.
My father is retired now, but sometimes lends a hand on projects, which is the best. My grandfather has passed many years ago, but I have a few of his tools that were passed down to me, that I take with me on every project, so he’s with me in spirit on every project.
I wish I had done this years ago. I have never been happier. I get to spend more time with my family and friends and use my knowledge and skills to help people love where they live, in my community.
