I don’t know anyone that couldn’t use a helping hand every now and then. Sometimes the list of things to-do is almost impossible to keep up with. There are always more things to-do every single day and sadly the amount of time to do them shrinks. Although I have a teenager that helps out around the house, or well attempts to drag himself from one area to another picking up random objects, it still gets to be too much.
As a person who is a huge advocate of strengthening communities, helping each other and being an advocate for small business – it is no surprise I fell in love with the purpose of Chores Market. Chores Market is an online marketplace where you get your chores done by qualified, skilled people who are your friends (or their friends), or people that can be vouched for in your community at a fraction of the price that you would pay a company. You never, ever, have to hire someone that cannot be vouched for. It’s even guaranteed with a 5-day warranty that makes sure the job is done right. Which is more than I can say for my teen who needs an explanation of the job so many times I just give up and do it myself.
The benefits are a great give and receive, especially for those of us that need help and those that want to help. The greatest benefit is that you don’t have to pay agency fees, you can pay directly AND with a credit card.
Or, perhaps you want to help out your friends and neighbors while making a few extra dollars for the holidays? You can Find a Chore and also negotiate your price. It automatically sets to your area so you don’t have to worry about sifting through locations that don’t apply to you either.
You can easily sign up through your Facebook Account or Google+ and Invite Friends the same way. And don’t worry if you don’t have enough friends on your network to fill in for a job, you can also find Helping Hands by using Find Helping Hand and invite them to the Chore you’ve posted. You can select everything from their distance from you to their specific skills.
This is a wonderful way to help friends and neighbors and it also connects the community together. You can find out more about The Chores Network on the website, on their Facebook Page and/or @ChoresMarket. You can also see what everyone is saying by following #HelpWithChores on Twitter!
