DIY Disasters: Not Just for Home Renovations Anymore

How many times have you gotten a quote for something – a remodel, a repair, a process, a service.... and thought it was too high priced?


MANY TIMES! Am I Right?? Be honest..


Same here. We received several ‘outrageous’ quotes to remodel our second bathroom and laundry room.


Of course – I indignantly researched YouTube and decided I could easily and cost effectively coordinate and hire the subcontractors for the plumbing, electric, tile, cabinets, and do everything else myself.


!Doable! I manage big projects all day long!



Fast Forward 5 months later – and we are barely just finishing the project. I did not have the best tools and equipment. I was slow. I was messy. I did not have the experience to anticipate all of the issues that arise along the way. NEVER… DOING… THIS….AGAIN. Next time, I will gladly pay the real EXPERTs. The real question I ask myself is: Why did I not start with the experts when every day we see data versions of DIY disasters. Companies attempting to prepare their own data for a campaign or project with results that end up costing thousands of dollars! Sometimes we just have to learn the hard way.
