When and why did you start the biz?
march of 2016 i decided to this to help families whom may be or in
the future could be in my situation my home flooded for the second
time i of course i was under insured and this go around insurance
refused to pay for my repairs so my 5 children and i had to move into
an apartment close to our home i had no money to repair it was
estimated at 69000 i had roughly 631 dollars in my bank account so i
decided i would become a contractor myself i would not over charge i
mean lets be honest i were to pay for my own material we were talking
80500 i was being robbed of money i didnt even have so my goals are
to take someone in my situation i plan to be fair i have 4 men do the
work then there is myself instead of 69000 my price would have been
35000 why because the work needed was simple fast and a real
contractor could of done it in 2 weeks i will not rob others i know
how it feels to be in a storm and feel hopeless

the choice we made it leads us somewhere . and teaches us something

do not change for the world
change the world for you your children do not be afraid to fail or
make a choice
you are either a leader or a follower teach your young to be leaders
there are to many followers out there this is your life you are
allowed to fall stand back up make mistakes and you shouldn't be
labeled for them so do not ever turn around when you want something go
for it and repeat it if you fail if you fall stand back up and smile
because you haven't lost

you to go into business for yourself?
my children when we had to move into a 2 bedroom apartment mainly my
son with down syndrome he constantly cried pointing to a picture
saying home momma home he done that for a good 5 months it really
made me wonder how many families were out there going through this my
kids motivate me and i don't have parents i lost both and my baby
sister so its not like i could run to my mom-mas house and cry i had
to pretend i was ok in front of my kids when in reality i wanted my
mom so i am more motivated when i want my mom and cant let my
blessing from god down he trusted me to be there parent so i will not
let him down
Anyone you publicly want to thank?
yes foremost insurance and the adjuster also the contractor who
quoted me that insane proposal had they not done this i would still be
clueless and would not get the chance to do what i am hoping to do for
