Drive Where?

Offering time and insight comes at a cost as the time spent driving is often a hindsight shrinkage margin unaccounted for.


BidMyVid doesn’t want you to be a Frustrated Driver off to give another estimate.


As a former contractor as well as being blue-collar born, I know that driving is part of the territory. But it doesn’t ALWAYS have to be! Countless hours offering insight, on-site that compounds with the time spent driving adds up in a world of instant gratification with unrealistic time and budget expectations. Deploying BidMyVid® in your service business will allow a knowing in advance if the project is a fit for both parties and it has never been more important.

Traveling miles and hours to assess projects can be costly. Clients dread the “ESTIMATE FEE” and Service Professionals can find themselves driving to no avail as projects are not a fit for the schedule or the available resource of each Service Professional.

The landscape of service industry has changed in many ways. No longer are we needing ways to “BUY LEADS” and be RIPPED OFF from large Marketing Platforms because the way of SHARING BUSINESS is what has always prevailed. Admittingly it has taken time for our team to weave the right technology layers together to catch up to how we operate at a fundamental core as a service industry with ETHICS, so now BidMyVid® exists, it allows the next evolution of the dreadful “LEAD” to the now “Opportunity” shared.

Contracting professionals have referred each other for eons as our dedicated and loyal clients ask for more and more help. We are glad to provide a solution that could lead to an outcome that is favorable for both parties; that in itself is fulfilling.

How does driving less and sharing business equal a better bottom line?

The digitization of services marketplace has created a toxic environment for service professionals. It is absurd to think that the very people that are asking for help from Service Professionals do not know that the current business models driving the marketplace are harmful and abusive to say the least.

Well, that is now a past statement of fact that no long is! As the Generation 5 and evolution comes to be, it is simple to stay connected in ways that SAVE TIME and reduce driving for ballpark estimate opportunities. BidMyVid® solves all the challenges of clients sending every and any which way, various methods to get in touch with us. Filters stand in the way as “Directories” or home advising sites that offer a redirection away from how they may not be helping those that are here to help others.

It was natural for the next step in my journey evolving as The Fix It Queen™, to move to circle the wagons around contractors, my hearts center. For having such a deep respect for true labor, skilled and brilliant labor; seeing my grandfather, father, uncles, aunts, business partners and myself work and toil in our skilled-trades profession, it bothered me to see the challenges we faced as digitation occurred and online search engines ranked great marketers over GREATE SERVICE. As service professionals and blue-collar community, our industries got left behind, UNTIL NOW!

Platforms are the NOW! Search engine are secondary. We hold planforms that keep us connected in many ways over the notorious search options. With the GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA BLACKOUT, we clearly saw that platforms are a connected space. The benefit to us is APPS leveled the playing field. We, as the contracting community can now have our OWN ENVIRONMENT! There are gaming platforms, there are social platforms and there are UTILITY platforms!

This is where the solutionist of the world CAN truly live. Not survive from the damages of oversold leads and high prices of customer contacts where there is no TRUE CONTACT made. The opportunity to THRIVE is here! The simple function and utility that serves a purpose to improve the quality of life exists. With social media crashes showing us that running a service business on a social platform can leave us all in a blackout and the continued rise in marketing costs to feebly rank against large marketing platforms, it is crucial to implement platforms and APP soluti8ons that are truly built to serve.

Marketing costs and other shrinkage margins seen and unforeseen plague small businesses. The challenges for contractors are even more tremulous when navigating construction phases or budget designations with margins unmanaged and unforeseen. Leveraging complete projects and having challenges outside our efforts and control create havoc in sustainability. This is a small pinhole view of other degrees we face in the blue-collar world.

This is WHY. It’s not about anything but TIME.

Our team efforts to solve the BIGGEST challenge first; how to integrate the highest touch medium, video, in a way that truly saves time. The digital tool missing from every Contractors tool belt and now the only tool they will ever need to save time from driving aimlessly to no avail. Chasing LEADS to recapture the losses from oversold and recoupable leads as well as the shrinkage from a being offered a “CREDIT” is now a thing of the past.

      Move with Intention

      WEDNESDAY WISDOM with The Fix It Queen Academy

      Wednesday Wisdom: Move with Intention

      Wednesday Wisdom posed this question, What is WISDOM?

      Wisdom is simply the understanding through experience which leads to actions backed from good judgement. The wisdom of today from The Fix It Queen Academy is to take a moment and reflect. From this reflection it is easy to see where past steps were made that led one off path.

      Business ownership is challenging. You don’t know what you don’t know and through that walk you learn. As you remain humble to serve with your purpose, you LEARN. As this happens, growth and the expansion from that knowledge can create memorable moments of guidance. Growth is painful. Losing for winning is something not for the faint of heart. It takes CLARITY. It takes FOCUS. It takes COMMITMENT. It takes PERSISTENCE. It takes PRESENCE. From this deep knowing on those accounts, the INTENTION that drives the actions is thus, executed wisdom.

      Failure is not meant to keep you from trying beyond what you know. If that were true, we would never walk, but only ever roll over, or crawl. Past that stage is PAIN. Past that is the FALL. But is it is a fall into faith knowing why you started has worth. The vision that started it all has value. It is in this moment that we muster all we KNOW and HAVE to launch and make adjustments from there as we propel forward.

      Pain is not painful, but aimful!

      The moment past the fall is where our bells can ring. Where we can react in a trauma to never try again. But wait, it’s not meant to never try again, but to TRY AGAIN! Not that way, but another. For what you see and saw as possible still is. You know more now in that you tried and found one way that did not progress to the goal. The goal is still the GOAL! You were born to dream then create! The goal allows a measurement of progress for adjustment. Again, you don’t know what you don’t know but the challenges cause you to seek. Seek more information in what form you can receive. Through a mentorship, a collogue, business group or YouTube channel. Once we know what did not work, we must seek more answers on how it COULD work differently. Try and try again. It is done as long as you continue moving though the solutions’ delivery.

      Move with Intuition!

      After regaining a clarity in adjusted moment from unexpected variables, having the clarity of your goal and directives will allow you to make an action that will realign the track towards progress. Having access to intuition means that your mindset is in a different receptive state than when the challenge interjected. For when there is a problem, the solution is also present. But, the solution is never in the same place as the problems origination. The problem lives in one space and the solution is in the opposing space where the problem does not exist. One can not exist with out the other and solutions are not present without challenge.

      Shock and trauma response can keep us in the vicinity of problem awareness and less in the space of solution receptivity. Clarity on the goals will allow the transition between these space to occur faster. Insight will come as chaos ensues. When you are calibrated to a solution channel there are no land mines that can thwart the delivery of the execution to that solution.

      Self-sabotage and blame become a distant thought and memory of exchanges in past. Forward tasks and deadlines to deliver and support the goal and its’ progress become the only directive. There is nothing that will stop this type of participation because it is not tied to monetary gain but qualitative purpose in a quantitate state to improve life by the continued offering of the product and/or service. It all makes sense, and then makes dollars.

      Clarity is key and with it, the movement by intuition will help with the timing of solutions and the progress as a result!

        Mindset on Social Media Outage

        by The Fix It Queen

        October 4, 2021

        The Fix It Queen Academy™


        SOCIAL MEDIA BLACKOUT doesn’t phase true CONNECTIONS!

        “To have conversation, presence of each party is key.”

        ~The Fix It Queen

        Social Media blackout showed that there is a disconnect in true connection and to think otherwise is not our current reality construct. Today’s wide range social media outage created the true awareness of the short gratification social platforms have. From, Twitter, to What’sApp, and Facebook plus Instagram, the list grows to include GMAIL among the giant tech platforms having social media outage and social media crashes happening on this Monday, users admitted to checking platforms repeatedly to see if they were “back up.” Myself included. As a Tech Startup in launch mode, marketing on these platforms is key, but not our only key!

        The KEY POINT to the above statement is SOCIAL MEDIA outage and crashes. Wish should only be a LEVERAGE TOOL and not a main tool. We discuss this in the Marketing Course in depth but as for this blackout of social reach, it seemed to be oddly reeking havoc on those platforms that create social pacification or distraction.

        If it was a true useful tool, chances are it still worked. Text messaging (what I refer to as 2021 Hit Me on My Pager Action) was working. Other software and functional platforms operated. The basic SOCIAL platforms that we are are all on a drip for gratification is what failed.

        Why is this important. As business owners, SMALL BUSINESS depends on the large social platforms. Some businesses have their entire business hosted and built upon these connections on these “social” platforms. How are we to really have each other in a connected environment without threat that there will be a BLACKOUT or other shutdown of the “social platform”.

        The answer is simple. Tools we depend on and rely on did NOT fail. Things that are part of the construct of functionality in our current reality still operated.

        Point in case, BIDMYVID did not fail.

        As a community platform that serves the service community it was crucial that our operations stay functional.

        I mean, to me, this is big stuff that affects the true quality of life here. Not a meme post and a pop culture trend, but truly the need to SERVE the community. We did not waiver, we did not fail. We continued to function just as your trusty “MAPS” and GPS features did not fail. BIDMYVID is not a social platform and feature, but a digital tool of function that gives time back. The one resource that is NOT renewable. Offering solutions to communicate true needs that can be the difference of having function in our home or business, or not.

        As the social media outage occurred it was refreshing to know that our systems were a full go and we continued to save time for contractors and their clients when it came to what is truly important; the needs of the community and our ability to help facilitate and support the delivery and communication of them. I was proud to get the message from our support team that we are business as usual.

        That being aside, the issue that I turned my focus upon was being aware that others were not so lucky. Others were dependent on the biggest of platforms to thrive. This is where the idea for today’s Mindset Motivation Monday blog came.

        As I thought about all the small business owners, small businesses, services businesses, service contractors and service companies that depend on What’sApp and Facebook Messenger as a primary way to communicate it was painful to know they had yet to know that there is a better way. A way designed with function and ease of use in mine, utility features that save time, not MEME generators. There is a huge difference. We enjoy powering Service Businesses with BIDMYVID to save time.

        I thought beyond that of the digital connection tool no longer missing from tool belts far and wide. I thought back to a time where we didn’t have these digital problems. We had people to serve and the presence to listen was the most important aspect.

        This is where we CONNECT. We try with words to communicate needs. But it is the VIBES between the words that help us resonate to a solution. So in this blackout of social platforms failing, I thought to touch base on an old school tip of connecting at a human layer of empathy and needs first. No messaging and selling in the fast pace digital world, but a slow down of focused listening to create a connection that sustains past a social media blackout.

        We are better when connected in purpose on purpose. Superficial likes, shares and scroll through activity leaves lost minds with no true “life line” to have as all the life was drawn through shallow and superficial and positional digitized presence verses true presence within a moment as we cross paths. That is where we engage and create memorable moments that stick with us in a true connection past a blackout of social platforms.

        BidMyVid supports this type of connection by integrating video and having function beyond a social connection, but on the deepest layer of human needs and the desire to serve and futfill them.
