What our handymen say
Working with Scout allows me freedom and control over not only my time but also my income. Being able to schedule how much and how often I work is an invaluable luxury that comes with being self employed. Scout also provides multiple income stream opportunities. All this with a support team and structure already in place, so you are not just going it alone, makes Scout, in my opinion, the best opportunity for independent trades people.
Joining the Scout team came at the perfect time in my life. I was needing a job that could provide for my family while also allowing independence and flexibility for my artistic pursuits. After only 2 years I can say that this opportunity has improved my life drastically. I'm healthier, wealthier, wiser and I have gained skills that I can take anywhere in the world for the rest of my life.
I love the freedom and ability to be my own boss. Working with Scout Home Services allows me to set my own schedule so I can spend more time with my family and take vacation on my own terms, any time of year. I have been able to develop and improve my skill set and make great connections. I would recommend it to anyone looking to enter the handyman arena.
