To complete the repair of the roof of the house we needed non-standard challenges. Dirty, was stupid, I could not find anywhere: or do not make a fundamentally or too long to wait. Helped a miracle — VKontakte helpedly slipped advertising a private workshop. Called:
-Proof now do it?
So I met Andrey. For two hours everything was done at the best of half the price of which I expected. It was exactly a year ago. The other day I needed foals for the base, I did not even call somewhere and immediately went to his workshop. While waiting for the execution of the order, it was time to talk.
It all started with the fact that Andrei was left without work — she worked as a private owner and he closed. Almost all the enterprises of the city went around, they did not take anywhere, they shook the hand sympathetically, they promised to call, but not a single call did not. Climbed over a few years the airbag, which was planned to spend on a new car ended.
What to do?
In my opinion, Andrei adopted the only right decision. If you do not take to work, you need to organize work yourself. And he decided — I bought a listogibic machine. At first put it in the garage, but disagreements began with the garage cooperative and it was forced to move it down.
I had to rent a small separate building on the very outskirts of the city. The measure was forced, since all the money went to the machine, so the advertising budget was approximately 0 rubles 0 kopecks.
He had to declare about themselves through social networks, to give ads on Avito, to negotiate with construction teams, offering them good discounts and speed of orders.
Andrei’s main trick — he is taken for the most non-standard orders, from which the nose will be gateing large enterprises and medium firms.
Over time, it turned out that the remoteness from the city center is even plus, as it is easier to deliver metal rolls, produce unloading and loading.
And this year and is suppressed when many enterprises and private traders closed and sit at home, Andrei works in the sweat of the face, there are a lot of orders. The city is actively built as cottage villages after the rain grow, so the demand for bent elements is very large.
Already you have to think about assistants, as one is very hard. He took several times to work familiar and unfamiliar people, but very quickly had to say goodbye to them: working side by side with the owner does not work phoned. To such many workers were not ready.
In total, we spoke almost two hours, after which I walked and drove home. And while I did not go from my head one thought.
A simple man, man noise was never afraid to build his own business, which feeds the whole family. He grow sons that every day see how their father worries and now they want to help him.
And over time, when a little grow up, they will become reliable support and will also work for the benefit of the family. It is quite possible, over time it will be a strong family enterprise.
And maybe it will grow out of it and something more.
