This month we’re putting the spotlight on Mike, a Provider from Nashville, TN. With 30 years of military experience serving in various capacities, Mike knows his way around a variety of handyman jobs. Since he joined last August, he’s Takl’d a plethora of jobs and made app users very happy in the process!
How did you first hear about Takl?
I first heard about Takl thru a co-worker as we were discussing ideas about how to earn additional income that didn’t require dedicated, clock-in duties.
What prompted you to you sign up to be a Provider on Takl?
As I researched Takl, I began seeing that I have the skills and tools it takes to do quite a few of these household chores that I enjoy doing. No sense in letting the tools that I have accumulated over the years to do my own house chores go to waste.
What jobs have you done so far?
Well, my first chore was to repair/replace attic insulation, and my most recent chore was to power wash a home’s porch, sidewalk and driveway. I’ve also replaced ceiling light fixtures, installed a bathroom ceiling fan, mounted a flat screen television, and quite a few haul aways.
Where/who did you get all these skills from anyway?
Growing up in California, my father was a landscaper/contractor so the work seed was planted in me at an early age. While other kids were playing sports, I was learning how to till, plant and sow grass. From there, that seed kept growing.
What branch of the military were you in?
I served in the U.S. Army and the Army National Guards.
How long did you serve in the military?
30 Blessed Years, 6 years active duty and 24 years in the Army National Guards.
What was your job in the military?
I’ve had several occupations. My first was Radio Communications (31M) during my active duty service. In the National Guard, I moved into a Combat Engineer Heavy Equipment Operator and Maintenance Unit. The last 8 years, I served under a Battalion/ESC Logistics Unit. My tours include Germany, Operation Desert Shield/Storm, Panama, and Operation Enduring Freedom.
