Episode 069: Hiring a Handyman



Starting out the Hiring Help Series in the month of July, I’m talking about the benefits of hiring a handy person to help with jobs in your home!


If you’ve been putting off stuff you want to get done for any reason, like you’re too busy, too tired,don’t want to, feel unable to do it, or feel guilty about asking for help because you think you should be doing it yourself, then ask yourself if it’ll ever get done.


Is it worth all the stress and frustration of the constant reminder that you haven’t checked that thing (or multiple things) off your to do list?


Having my handyman come over a couple of times a week or month to do odd jobs that I put off or can’t do on my own has been such a huge relief mentally and physically. Whether it’s changing out hardware, outlet covers, paint, or light fixtures for a fresh, updated look, or mounting shelves in my laundry room and bikes in the garage for a more organized aesthetic, the jobs are getting done way faster than if I tried to do them all myself. That’s worth hiring someone who knows what he’s doing so I can spend my time focusing on the things I enjoy doing!
