As you navigate between your many responsibilities at work and home, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by all the jobs you have to do. Frequently, you let home improvement projects slide because you don’t get fined for not keeping up with them. While this tactic works for tasks such as repainting your kitchen and replacing your carpets, don’t put off these critical projects.
Meet Jill Barber. Jill owns River City Referrals, a Homeowner Referral Network (HRN®) business based in Virginia. Jill works from home screening and referring local home improvement contractors in her area.
1. What did you do before you launched your Homeowner Referral Network (HRN)?
I worked at FedEx Express.
2. Why did you want to launch a business from home?
I didn’t know that’s what I wanted to do, but I was pregnant and got a very attractive severance package from FedEx, so I left.
