BUSINESS SUCCESS STORIES
Many people would describe Kent Nelson as a "jack of all trades." From weatherizing homes to installing windows and doors, Nelson can do it all. After 30 years in the workforce, he had a desire to start his own handyman service and in October 2012, "Rent-A-Kent" was formed!
Nelson met with Julie Arnould, one of Western Dairyland's Business Development Specialists to discuss the ideas he had for his business. Arnould helped with his business plan and addressed key issues, such as where to advertise and how much to charge for specific services. Nelson appreciates the one-on-one time spent with Arnould and says that her advice was extremely helpful.
Nelson expects he will be busy as winter ends and spring begins. Although the colder months make it difficult to schedule any outdoor work, he has been busy with an extensive living room remodeling project. Nelson already has a few projects scheduled for the warmer months and is looking forward to expanding his business this summer.
Nelson offers a variety of services from installing patio doors, building entertainment centers and even mural painting! If you are interested in finding out more about Kent's services, please contact him at 715-797-3526.
