Most Taskers know all too well the rewarding feeling of making a positive impact on someone’s day, but can you say you’ve also saved someone from having to pay a hefty fine? Tasker Patrick H. from Dallas can.
Read on to discover how Patrick transitioned to tasking to gain more freedom in his schedule to spend more time with his family, and how he was literally one Client’s hero when he saved her from a big fine from the local city government.
What did you do before becoming a Tasker?
I worked in construction.
What’s the primary reason why you joined TaskRabbit?
To give myself more free time and a more flexible schedule.
What helped you accept and complete your first task?
The app made everything so easy and straightforward. TaskRabbit takes care of all the tedious paperwork, scheduling, and payments. It makes it easy for me to focus on what I’m best at.
How do you market yourself to Clients?
I always let my Clients know what other things I can help them with on TaskRabbit. Usually, they have no idea how many different categories TaskRabbit offers, and how broad my skills are.
What’s your best tasking memory?
Mowing a Client’s yard for her. I know it sounds simple, but she didn’t own a mower and had never done it before. On top of that, she was on the brink of getting a citation from the city for having her grass too long. She was very happy that I was able to get it done so quickly and efficiently, and that I saved her from a hefty fine!
How has TaskRabbit impacted your life?
It’s allowed me to make a solid income so I can provide myself and my family with a better living. It’s also given me the flexibility to spend more time with my kids—now I can just mark myself as unavailable in the evenings and on weekends if I want to hang out with them.
We are always striving to build a platform that provides Taskers with the flexibility they need to achieve whatever is most important to them, and we’re thrilled to hear that for Patrick H., our platform has given him the flexibility to spend more time with his family. And with a solid upselling strategy of sharing his other tasking categories with each new Client, we hope he’ll be able to continue spending quality time with his family for a while yet!
