Great information

A few episodes in now as husband and I are thinking of going all in on his tile and remodel skills and opening a business for shower remodels and more. He is very handy and our business would most likely include some handyman type of stuff. But even though it is not our main vision, I have found this podcast to be very insightful in the area of getting a business going on your own and not working for a larger company. Definitely recommend.

Great information

I came across Dan’s website which led me here, and even though the information here is from a few years ago, it is great info on starting a handyman business. I’m just get going in my area and this has gotten me excited about the potential. I’ve listened to about 8 podcasts so far and there is some great stuff here.

Time and Money saving Podcast

This podcast will save you money and yields a high return on the time invested to listen to it. At first listen this Podcast comes across as targeted for beginners. But the more I listened I realized it’s packed with content that only someone working in the trenches would know. Dan gives you a real world insight to running a handyman business included with specifics about scenarios that are inevitable to arise. Sure you could not listen to Dan and find those things out for yourself. Or you could listen to Dan and adjust your business model accordingly and save yourself from so many headaches and pitfalls that cost time and money. Thanks for putting this together Dan. It’s given me a high level perspective of all the minor aspects that add up to make a customer service based handyman business great.

Hey Big D

Hey Big D, lol. Thanks for doing this podcast, it’s pushing me into starting my handyman business, been debating for a long time and wasn’t sure how, but your podcast are helping me figure that out. My main craft is, Electrical, 15years, so I’ll push that and I know how to do a lot more so I’ll be accepting small jobs in other trades to build my experience more. Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated. My issues would be billing and charging people.Thank you Big D. Keep up the good work.

Great advise

I only wish more guys with twice the experience would listen to what you have to say. Too many so called handymen are war hardened from the business aspect and end up making a bad name for the handyman trade leaving a bad taste in the mouths of customers. Be humble and deliver value you will never go hungry.

So Helpful!

I found this podcast while searching for anything related to the handyman business. I never thought I would find the answers to every question holding me back from starting my own business. Thanks to Dan Perry, I have just that in the Handyman Startup. Between the website and podcasts I have transformed my "it would be nice someday" aspiration into a reality. I followed Dan's recommendations to the letter and now have my handyman license, business name and logo, area of town I will be focusing on, and website built with WordPress. I have such high hopes for the future instead of an insurmountable mountain of questions. Thank you Dan for this resource!!MikeLas Vegas, NV

Excellent Insight

I am very glad to have found The Handyman Startup podcast by Dan Perry. The advice given is insightful while concise. Taking methods and tips from the podcast and applying it to your business model is seamless. I have especially enjoyed the interviews from other handymen around the country. Initially I was skeptical (thinking how good could this information be if it is free), but Dan has proven me wrong, as quickly became surprised at the knowledge gained with listening to each episode.The podcast is a great tool for any of you, like me, who get stuck in the dreaded "analysis paralysis" mode, as it inspires you to take the next step to grow your home service business.Keep up the great work Dan!

Awesome for Beginners

I'm currently pursuing a degree in Construction Management but I enjoy the handyman work. This has been a great podcast to listen to while I continue my education and begin my own business ventures. Thanks and I hope there will be more in the near future!
