Went from hesitant to now confident

by jl333 on July 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Recently I've been working as a personal assistant to many families. My random jobs vary daily. Among some those various jobs, people have been asking me to fix stuff. Obviously some of the requests are intimidating. But with the help of YouTube, I've been able to conquer jobs that I ordinarily wouldn't. A couple of weeks back, I fixed a washing machine and a stove. In the last two days, I fixed a dishwasher, vacuum, and power washed 3 houses! Today I'm fixing Plantation shutters and a broken cupboard. I'm now feeling quite confident in this new line of work, especially when the employers are equally impressed. I'm no longer hesitant at the unknown, but rather want to 'learn how'.
