I am a Thumbtack provider with over 100 completed jobs. Michael was referred to me as an assistant, by my other assistant. He recently moved back to Chicago after his Indiana employer relocated. Michael has assisted me on over 17 jobs. He is fully capable of handling single piece furniture assembly. Because of my overhead, it is difficult for me take on; small, single-piece, one man assembly jobs. I am unable to charge a fee that is fair to the client and myself. I could just bid on those jobs, and send Michael out, but it would be a lot of work, and very low profit. It is better if I help Michael launch his own Thumbtack career.
His background is masonry and outdoor construction. He has the tools and experience to handle the small masonry jobs that I do not undertake: cracked bricks and stones, tuckpointing, steps made of poured concrete that have cracked, etc.
