How Frontenac Business Services Helped
Tammy had a solid business idea and the skills needed to be a valuable resource in our area as a handywoman. But as a sole proprietor she didn’t have anyone to soundboard to that had a background in business and knows this area well. That’s where Frontenac Business Services came in. We provided her with coaching, encouragement and ongoing support from the get go and helped her start to build clientele. The first step was to support Tammy in preparing a business plan. Networking is an important aspect of her business so we made sure to connect her with business, services and professional people to help her grow the business.
Tammy is now in her second year of operation and has positioned herself to be the goto-handywoman when residents of North Frontenac are in need. She has clients that
enlist her services to keep up their cottage properties and to do turnovers for seasonal rentals. Other clients are older residents who are looking for assistance. Her portfolio of
services has grown to include yard and garden care, property checks, painting and just another set of hands whenever you need it. Tammy also builds and sells picnic tables and cedar planter boxes. Her next endeavour will be to expand into providing training on how to be your own maintenance person.
