My family has owned a painting/carpentry/home repair¬†business for just about half a century, and obviously they have done well enough to have survived that long. Business started out from friends, then friends of friends, then a few people responding to some inexpensive ads, etc etc. If you have any kind of¬†commercial or home¬†repair business, or a renovation, design,¬†maintenance, or any related kind of service or gig, I’m sure you’ve started with similar steps. Likewise, I’m sure many of you have felt the upper right hook, left jabs, and the those horrible¬†uppercut blows¬†of the floundering economy – they can knock the wind right out of any home & commercial service company.
My family’s carpentry business, run primarily by two of my uncles, and staffed by a few cousins and a brother, have been rationing out the jobs they receive between themselves, with the time between each job – and each paycheck – getting longer and longer. My uncle picked up a part-time pizza delivery job. My brother is making extra money by doing some landscaping for a few people. Business has considerably diminished for all of them – but it is not due to bad paint jobs, crooked wallpapering, or rough hardwood floors.¬† It’s due to a failing economy.
This is what half of¬†myServiceConnection resolves. It provides opportunities for hard-working home repair businesses & commercial service men and women¬†to keep themselves afloat- even if the business phone or answering service¬†isn’t ringing.
Don’t settle for scraping by when you can do something about it.¬† You can join a global marketplace of service providers, where right now, individuals and businesses are looking for home repair guys, painters, plumbers, shingle hangers, refrigerator fixers, furniture movers, roofers, landscapers, insulators, sewage pipers, and every kinda guy (or girl) in between. You can bid on jobs that catch your interest, and suggest your own wages (you may do that anyway, but we make sure you actually get paid).
Look, we aren’t here to take more money from those already struggling, under-employed, deeply in debt, uninsured, or out of options. We are here to help them find it. We’re here to help YOU find it. Even if your bank account balance has a bunch of pretty zeros,¬†and you just want to grow your business – what better way to do that than permanent exposure on a global network service marketplace? Any way you look at it, it’s a win-win for us all.
So sign up. Bid on jobs. Get paid. Be happy.
