Name of Business: Neufeld Property Services
Business Type: Sole Proprietor
How did you get started?: My business started out organically. I have been developing various skills over many years that have led me to where I am today. Slowly through conversations and getting my name out there, people have come to put their trust in me to provide quality property management services for them. It’s hard work with bumps along the way but I love what I do which makes it easy work.
Successes (best part): Being able to provide for my family well and set my own hours is what I think of as success.
Challenges: Growing the business large enough and fast enough to sustain a full-time income has been a challenge. Also, in property management, dealing with tenants is always a challenge, but knowing the rules and staying on top of things mitigates some of the issues.
Advice for other YPs: Just give it a try. Start small and make it fun. If it’s not fun, is it really worth doing? And whatever you decide to do be confident, confidence goes a long ways. Sell yourself and always work at developing your skills and network.
