Who says a woman can't fix stuff?

Wouldn't you rather have a woman working in your home? 

I'll get it done, even with the kids and dogs running around.

My Personal Remodel

After over 25 years in the "business world" I decided it was time to remodel myself. Honestly, I loved the daily brain crunch, strategic planning, business development, innovation, etc. etc. until...I didn't.

 

One morning, I was in the shower looking at a window that was rotting and mildewed. I thought OY, I have to get a handyman out to do this. And I don't know when I'm going to be home, and how do I find someone (my mind started spiraling out of control...) until I realized that I can fix that!  

And that I did. It looks great, by the way. 

 

I decided that I want (and get) to do something that I get a lot of joy from. Believe it or not, that happens when I pick up a hammer, saw, screwdriver, and my trusty level and start building and fixing things. And, not to brag, but I'm good at it.

 

So here I am. Ready to get going and get it done using the tools of MY trade.
