A long, long time ago I blogged about my Sexy Handyman. (I am sorry the picture is gone now, it was on the server where Serendipity used to be hosted. I will have to see if I can find and repair that.)
For a very long time if you Googled 'Sexy Handyman' my blog was the post that would pop up as the #1 result on the search engine, prompting lots of joking about the fact that I was married to Google's #1 sexiest handyman. As time has gone by Google has dropped him to #8, but being married to the #8 sexiest handyman isn't something one should sneeze at!
In the re-vamping and resurrecting of Serendipity Mine I decided to check the forgotten e-mail that was linked to the blog for people to contact me. Apparently, back in August 2013 I received an inquiry as to whether this would be a decent basis for a business:
My name is Mr. Curious (I have changed his name). I was searching the web for possible info on a business idea I had when I came across your blog. My question: would there be a market for a Sexy Handyman Service?
Now ...the guys would actually need to know how to do fix it work and not just be a "walking penis with a tool belt". (Sorry for the bluntness)
I had thought of this idea many years ago, but being married, it didn't go over well. Time has taken care of that.
My thought would be:
A set charge for any job discussed over the phone or at a quote visit. If there is extracurricular time involved, that would be charged out as if it were "after hours". Such as double rate.
I almost went and did security for a Sexy Maide Service, but ended up working for a very large Gentleman's Club instead. I'm now too old to turn heads as all you ladies seem to be Cougars! I would just handle quotes and do paperwork. But, to show you who I am, I'll slip a couple pics. Be honest..maybe I'm too critical of myself.
If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them and will respect them too.
Well, Mr. Curious I am currently very happy with Google's #8 Sexiest handyman. However, in the interest of fairness to all those out there whom do not have such luck..I will re-post your offer on my blog and let the world decide if your services would be warranted (minus the pics of course..and thank you for only sending G rated ones).
