What does everyone call themselves? Other than upholsterer, or re-upholsterer,

Artisan? Tradesperson? Craftsperson?

CRAZY for spending 40 plus years trying to be the waiter, dish washer, cook, and about 10 other positions related to self employment

When somebody asks what I do for a living I first tell them I am a business owner. And then I tell them I reupholster furniture. Then I tell them I've been doing it for over 30 years. At this point I pause and wait for the next question. And that is usually where did you learn? Then if its a man he will ask if I do car seats. If its a woman she will ask for an estimate on her sofa. That's when I point to Rose and say she does all the estimates.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Steve: great. something to look forward to.

Kody: Had this already too. It's people just trying to be polite. But honestly, there has to be a better way to answer. Neither want either, they're just talking.

Anyway, these questions aren't for nothing. I'm pushing myself hard to network. So far, so good. Not my idea of fun, by necessary.

Alright how about these answers,

I make homes beautiful.

I put smiles on people's faces.

I make housewives happy. Say this one with a slight mischievous grin on your face.

And then you have to go right into your 30 second elevator spiel.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

I cannot speak for the rest of you but I call myself nucking futs for ever getting into this business. :)

Like Ed I call myself a business owner. But in all actuality we are all tradespeople. There is little difference between us being a diesel mechanic, HVAC technician, mason, lineman, etc. We all specialize in a trade.

JMHO,

Mojo
