No is NOT the answer!

Building a service business that is high demand can leave Contractors jammed.

Finding ways to say YES is!

“I don’t turn down work if I can manage it; there is just so much of it, it’s hard to get to.”

John Phillips, Owner – Beaver Heating and Cooling LLC.

Finding the pain points in our current service marketplace is not hard. Its finding contractors that have availability to come out that seems to be the challenge. Trying to find a contractor in a sea of digital lead platforms WILL leave you feeling less than supported and disconnected from service providers.

It is a grueling path to ride; to bare the unforgiving pavement of never-ending hours on the road to assess projects. The wear and tear on the fleet and on the service professional is breaking the levy. But what if there were a better way to VALUE everyone’s time involved?

DAM the work and build the reservoir!

No more DAMN leads that cause service professionals to run ragged trying to service everyone in curiosity, let alone in necessity. Now there is a way to save time and use it in a resourceful way. It’s about time to DAM the needs and help in a way that truly addresses concerns and offers a chance to foster the building of trust. Dam the opportunities in a way they have a chance to be addressed. Build the reservoir in a way to mange the flow rather than be overrun by it.

The breakdown of trust when calling for help is something that has been degrading for decades. The volume has not slowed but the trust breakdown has made it challenging to effectively complete service needs without the anxiety caused by the lack of trust. As digitization has happened and the continuation of pattern to have gratification instantly, it has left service professionals on the highway of endless margin loss and time loss. Twitching like road kill, the time to fix this challenge has come

    Drive Where?

    by The Fix It Queen

    The Fix It Queen Academy™


    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.

    Built by Contractors for Contractors in a way that truly saves time and shares business how we do in real exchanges, is now a digital experience. Download BidMyVid® now to try it free for 7 days. Allow our team an opportunity to give your time back so that you can take more opportunities. Opportunities are yours to take, they can be in the form of new jobs, a moment to work on your business. Finding ways to save time by helping you simplify your business woes, driving is just one of the challenges we face with rising gas prices and gas guzzling service vehicles. Now is the time to save time from driving and use that time to learn more way to operate a business more effectively.

        Move with Intention

        The Fix It Queen Academy™


        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!
