Re: Inspiration - Tell us your story.

Training dogs has always been a passion of mine. Getting into business was the hard part. How do I find clients? How do I get my name out there? All those questions a small business faces. All of my answers came when I started with Thumbtack. I literally created my profile, quoted my first job, and got it! It seemed too good to be true. It was just a way for me to do my passion as well as make a few extra dollars on the side.
2 years later I am now divorced but thanks to Thumbtack, I was able to quite my 9-5 office job, provide for my daughter and I, as well as buy my own home. I wouldn’t have believed you if you would have told me this is what was going to be happening in less than 3 years!
If you follow your passion, the rest will fall into place. I truly believe that. Thumbtack is the perfect avenue to help you make your dreams come true!

Have you ever trained a wolf hybrid husky to be a working dog?

@DennisHals
I have not had that privilege. Just to work with a wolf hybrid would be a dream for me.

Re: Inspiration - Tell us your story.

Hello, I am a third gerenation flooring guy. We been in business through thick and thin opening in 1931, I have work at our business since 1983. We are a construction licensed business in Flooring. My grandfather and my dad both worked 45 years each and i’m on my 38th year. however I use computers and cell phones. They did not.
The challenges of Thumbtack not knowing anything about construction and what’s needed for estimates from client to business, there are so many different trades in floor covering, 100 different types of carpet, linoleum, vinyl sheets and hardwood, vinyl tile, what questions to ask and client to get those questions answered on the pre form so we don’t have to go to each address, gas, spend lotta overhead just to get an estimate that somebody else undercuts you so if we could ask these questions on that thumbtack page and get them answered it sure would save a lot of headaches, overhead, gas, time. especially for people like me that do not have office people I am a sole proprietor and I own and operate and run a floor covering store, and have installed 38 years all the trades and master of them .
