Check Out Courtney Ponder’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Courtney Ponder.

Hi Courtney, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Covid had forced us to think outside the box, and Chase and I had both lost our jobs. We both thought we were down on our luck. However, it pushed us to the next level in our lives.

Chase took up a few jobs to make ends meet while I did side jobs painting and I loved it! Chase told me to keep at it even though it was unsteady because he felt my passion for it. After a few months of just making enough to pay Bill, I had contacted a real estate investor, Matt who promised steady work.

Eventually, Matt wanted us to get our LLC and insurance to be a real company, with his help and a few hours of reading we were actually legit and jobs were easier to come by. Looking back on the whole experience, I feel Covid had actually inspired us to persevere. And no matter how bad things seem there are always positives to situations.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has been a pretty smooth road. The biggest struggle we encountered was getting robbed of $4,000. We learned contracts are mandatory no matter how authentic a person seems.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
We are a two-man team hoping to expand soon. Professional and reliable and our motto is to do more than what you’re paid for. We go out of our way to make our clients happy.

What do you think about luck?
We don’t believe in luck. You make your luck in everything you do. Hard work & discipline in everything you do goes a long way.
