I see the job through from quoting to the end product. So the client only ever has to deal with one person. Quality – we get the job done right the first time. And again, I offer the right information for them to make the right decision.
Funding the business until I established a credit line. I had to purchase everything and go from there. And I had a young family to support at the time also. I had $5 to my name…. I couldn’t even afford to buy a trowel!!
Competing with larger existing companies that were already established. And like everyone else in Chch trying to run a business while dealing with the effects of the quakes on a personal level, and keeping afloat on the business front.
Having a family to support motivated me to get out and find the work and get it done. Then working long hours – working weekends and late nights, as the clients themselves might only be available outside of normal business hours.
