- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My father was too cheap to hire a professional for anything around the house. Instead, he invested in the Time/Life book series of Home Repairs. As a kid I was always his helper (mostly because my brothers could run faster).
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
My father was too cheap to hire a professional for anything around the house. Instead, he invested in the Time/Life book series of Home Repairs. As a kid I was always his helper (mostly because my brothers could run faster). At around 13 years old I repaired my first Washing machine with my dad (defective timer). My father’s frugality became my curiosity, which eventually became my side hustle and, roughly 40 years after that washer, became Smart Choice, LLC and Smart Choice Home Services.
