When the economy crashed in 2008 millions lost jobs and many struggled for years and some are still struggling to catch up. I was fortunate then but years before I had a profitable writing and consulting business helping federally funded housing programs across the country. My reputation was established and I was selling books, a monthly newsletter, and traveling to help communities leverage the housing funds they received from the federal government. Unfortunately, after a national election, everything changed and all the housing funds disappeared and so did my business. Just as those who lost their jobs, the money stopped. What saved me was the handyman and carpenter skills I learned in my youth.
My limited savings were dwindling and I didn’t have time to find a job. I no longer owned a truck so I purchased and outfitted a small trailer with all the handyman tools I needed and hit the ground running. After just a few ads in local weekly papers I was working everyday and making a decent living. At first most of the jobs were small and could have easily been handled by someone with limited experience and that was good because money flowed promptly.
As time passed I started taking larger jobs and gradually moved from just handyman work to small remodeling jobs and finally, after renting a small shop, to woodworking which I continued for over twenty five years.
Like losing a good job, a business failure can be traumatic and impose a serious financial hardship but with a few handyman skills anyone can quickly start making money. I know that first hand and my book Handyman Business Quick Start Guide can help you do the same on a full time or part time basis.

Based on more than 30 years of personal, first-hand, self-employment experience in home repair and woodworking it’s a complete course on succeeding in the home repair business. I cover every step from getting started to the day-to-day operation of the business using methods that worked for me for many years.
This is no pie in the sky romancing about self employment. It takes good home repair and business skills to operate a business successfully and now you can learn exactly how to use your present skills to succeed financially in the handyman business.
Handyman Business Quick Start Guide helps you avoid losing money and many other potential problems encountered during your business startup. I won't tell you that this is easy to do. It,s a lot of work but my book covers everything that worked for me for over 30 years.
With that information you will work effectively and profitably and enhance your present skills while operating a financially successful full-time or part-time handyman business. You can start small and either grow a larger business or simply stay small and use your skills as a lucrative sideline. The choice is yours.
