Joe and I had a rough year in 2011. With the economy the way it is, the company we both worked over a decade let us go. What to do? Of course we went through the typical human response. PANIC! Some anxiety, Okay, a lot of anxiety. And then the ever inevitable emotion, depression. Fear ranked high too.
To keep me from going over the expansive edge, we decided to enjoy our town with as little as we could. NATURE! Palm Coast is filled with nature. I believe we have more trails and waterways than anyone else in the state. I don’t know that as a fact, but we have an abundance. For more info on our parks go to. http://www.flaglercounty.org/index.aspx?NID=126.
So, Joe and I spent our frustrations, biking around town, kayaking, walking and even fishing. We found numerous parks with trails to enjoy, even a mountain bike trail on A1A. We would take walks around our neighborhood and discovered a plethora of homes abandoned and in foreclosure. Many of these homes were left in shambles.
After a discussing the plight of our soft market and questioning what does our town need, Joe and I brainstormed, (Many beers and wine later) and came up with the idea of Junk removal. Really, who takes away this stuff?
Thinking some more, what about many of our older citizens who need large items removed, but can’t do it themselves? What happen’s after all those weekend garage sales? How many people in town have projects, but now don’t know what to do with their construction debris? Many residents upgrade and buy new appliances. What happens to the old appliances? Well, why don’t we help these people? So, November 2011, we made two large changes in our lives. We adopted a puppy named Brutus, (a chihuahua) I think he keeps us sane, or insane, whichever way you prefer to look at it, and second, we headed over to the BAC, in Palm Coast, and spoke to Joe Roy about starting our Junk Removal Business. http://palmcoastbac.com/. If you have any questions about opening a business in Flagler County, visit the BAC at Market Place in Palm Coast Business Assistance Center. It’s free advise, and they point you in the right direction.
January 3rd, my birthday, we picked up our 10×6 trailer in Deland, and by January 5th, we started, J & H Junk Removal, LLC. A few weeks in we joined The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce. http://www.flaglerchamber.org/. And our journey began.
