We’ve now been in our home for ten years and I still have a list of projects that we vowed would be fixed right after we moved in. Spoiler alert – they are still not done! My husband doesn’t love home improvement projects and – because I work from home – the problems bother me a lot more than him. Finally I found a contractor and, over the next five days, the issues are being addressed. Every. Single. One.
Best of all, the contractor is easy going and happy for the work. He arrived with a big smile and made more progress in 25 minutes than we’ve made in ten years. Such is the power of hiring an expert, even when you’re capable of doing something yourself.
Today, write about a time when you hired an expert. What did you have them do? How long had you been avoiding the project and how long did it take them to complete the job? Was it a good investment?
