Re: Inspiration - Tell us your story.

We started our moving business in 2009.  My husband had been layed off by his employer and only living on my paycheck!  We started with just one small truck working out of our basement of our home.  My husband found Thumbtack online and we immediately saw how valuable and how differnt Thumbtack is from other lead generating sites.  With the help of Thumbtack to get our name into the community we now have a fleet of over 20 trucks and a 10,000 sq ft warehouse.  10 years strong and still loving what we do!

Re: Inspiration - Tell us your story.

My name is Rafalar.  I am retired and its been kind of hard to live off of SSC.  I love to help people.  I have been doing this most of my life.  I started a wedding business about 10 years ago.  After retirement, I decided to get back into it.  After my mother passed away, I became ill.  I spent several months in the hospital.  I know I was stressed and worn out.  I was the caregiver for my mother.  

Now I need more income coming in so I decided to get in back in touch with Thumbtack.  I am pretty much starting over.  Thank you for listening.

My inspiration comes from my clients who love my work its instant gratification. That's why I love to paint where others dread the idea
