For this week’s Tasker Tuesday, we’re reeling in an impressive fish! Michael C. not only loves fishing (hence the pun), but is a true master of home-improvements. He’s already given new life to 6 homes all the while teaching his Clients about the DIY world of tasking.
Read on to find out more about Michael’s best tasking connections and advice.
What did you do for a living before becoming a Tasker?
I was a retail sales manager.
What is the primary reason why you joined TaskRabbit?
I was hoping to supplement my retirement income to set myself up for success later in life.
How do you market yourself to Clients?
I advertise my Tasker profile to my Facebook friends and am also an avid believer in word of mouth. I always ask my Clients to share my info with their friends if they were pleased with my work.
What’s your top ice-breaker question you ask Clients? (If they’re present at the task)
I always offer a pleasant greeting and then ask them to show me what they were thinking of for the task at hand. If there’s space, I’ll gently offer my own ideas, asking questions to clarify the scope of the task. During the task, I always make sure to check in with my Client to show progress—clarity in the process is key.
What is the most meaningful connection you’ve made through tasking?
I absolutely love when I can save my Clients money by showing them tricks of the trade of home improvement. Recently I was able to save my Client $350 by demonstrating appliance repair, which gave her the confidence to do it alone. Of course I’m always here if she needs my services, but I’m a big believer in paying forward knowledge if Clients are interested in learning—we’re all part of a community, after all!
How has TaskRabbit impacted your life?
TaskRabbit has enabled me to pay some unexpected expenses and maintain my quality of life, which I sincerely appreciate. I feel more prepared as I head in the direction of retirement!
What’s your hidden talent?
I’m a master of home repair and maintenance! I have owned and rehabilitated 6 homes in my lifetime.
What do you do to unwind?
There is really nothing better than fishing with the love of my life 🎣❤️.
