In 2001, I decided to leave my three jobs, which included working at KFC, a swimming pool, and a glazing company. Balancing multiple jobs was exhausting, and I realized it wasn't the path I wanted to pursue. Despite completing my carpentry qualification in 2000, I continued working those three jobs. However, on a rare day off, I turned to the Yellow Pages and contacted every kitchen fitting company listed. Though I aimed for a kitchen fitting job, I ended up with an interview for the bathroom fitting division of a company. I saw it as an opportunity to get my foot in the door and thought, maybe I'll enjoy plumbing.
Given the situation's urgency, I quickly called my mother, who worked as a career advisor then, and informed her about the interview and my interest in plumbing. I asked if she had any information about colleges or additional training, I could study before the interview. I sat in my car outside the company, poring over the college information to ensure I was prepared.
During the interview, I made a bold offer: I would enrol in night college at my own expense if they gave me the job. To my surprise, they offered me the position and agreed to cover the cost of my college education. Finally, I had a chance to enter the field I desired.
In 2005, equipped with extensive knowledge in various trades such as plastering, tiling, electrics, plumbing, and carpentry, I established my own bathroom company called Atlantic Bathrooms. Eventually, I renamed it Atlantic Bathrooms and Kitchens.
However, by late 2010, the demand for bathroom and kitchen renovations declined, causing a decrease in work opportunities. I shifted my focus to general plumbing and emergency plumbing services.
Due to the increasing demand for general plumbing work in 2012, I founded another company called LocalPlumber-UK Limited, which remains successful today.
I launched a homeowners guide blog to assist homeowners, save money, and address pesky plumbing issues. Its purpose is to provide guidance and tips for carrying out small to medium-sized DIY projects, enabling individuals to tackle tasks independently and find solutions for common plumbing problems around their homes.
