How To Start Your Own Handyman Business

So you decided that you want to start your own handyman business?  Or at least you have  entertained the thought of starting one.  Starting a handyman business can be very rewarding in both financial gain and personal accomplishment.  But before we go any further, there are many decisions that you will have to make before you begin.  This site is dedicated to those who want to start their own handyman business and need a little help or dont know where to begin.

Let me start by saying that I started my own handyman business 3 years ago with $1,000 in the bank, a used truck, and a few tools.  It hasnt been easy (as with any business) but I have been able to grow my business into a thriving business with brand recognition and even a trademarked name.  This business can be as simple or complicated as you want it to be. The first thing you will need to decide is if you will be starting a handyman business from scratch or buying a franchise.  If you are thinking about buying into a franchise this website will not be much help.  This site is geared to those who want to start from scratch.  Whether or not you want to be a one man show or have several employees is what you will have to decide on first.  This is important because of how you setup your business from the beginning.  Its much easier to grow your business later if you are setup to do so from the start.
