Customer satisfaction and reflecting on what we have achieved so far is what keeps me motivated. I’ve been in business for four years and there are four of us working in the business now. I work an average of 55 hours a week.
In 10 years time, I’d like to still be providing quality cabinetry to the Rodney area and beyond. Providing opportunities for apprentices is also important to me and I’d like to update to more modern machinery to provide a more efficient service.
Setting up my own business has been a rewarding journey.
Building the business up from scratch was a struggle in the beginning, juggling meetings with sales reps, clients and manufacturing, and installing cabinetry by myself. Once there was enough work to employ another cabinetmaker things got easier.
Advice: Research your targeted market. Believe in yourself and set achievable goals both short and long term.
