What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I worked in the pest control field for years, often I would get calls from customers who were tired of "just trapping" the rodents and asked if there was anything more we could do. The company I worked for then did not do "Exclusion Work". I decided to start my own company that specialized in this.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the great feedback I get from people who are so happy that their homes are finally rodent free.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
_7 years ago I met a man named George. For 17 years he had flying squirrels and rats in his attic. For 17 years he attempted to get rid of them to no avail. Finally he called Mayday. Within a few weeks, we trapped all the squirrels and rats and sealed his home. He has never had a problem since. _

In 1860, three women in Hartford Connecticut believed that the boys they saw lollygagging in the streets should have something better to do with their time. So they made sure they did. They started a club that gave the boys constructive, community-based activities that helped forge their characters. In the 150 years since, this idea has spread from a community cause to a national sensation, with that first club inspiring more than 1,140 independent organizations to form since. Today, Boys & Girls Clubs of America reach more than 4,000 communities, giving children—including the child versions of spokespeople Denzel Washington and Jennifer Lopez—positive outlets for their spare time.
The Clubs' programs touch on everything from volunteer-service days to bake sales and zoo field trips. Yet no matter what the specific activity, participating students gain a connection with and respect for their community, enhancing their communication skills and self-esteem. The organization also focuses on specific goals through tailored programs, helping build leadership skills, artistic talents, or the knowledge necessary to compete in the job market.
Atlanta Habitat for Humanity was established in 1983, and is now one of the biggest Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States. The organization serves as the largest affordable single-family housing developer in Atlanta. As part of its efforts to eliminate substandard housing and improve access to adequate, affordable housing, Atlanta Habitat partners with working families, communities, and sponsors to build affordable, quality homes that meet green-building standards. Atlanta Habitat builds energy-efficient houses using Green Advantage construction procedures to help lower costs for homeowners while also benefiting the environment.
Along with maintaining relationships with its homeowners—starting from the application process and ending when the no-interest mortgage is paid off—Atlanta Habitat helps families to complete 250 hours of sweat equity—the volunteer time required of those who buy Habitat homes—as well as classes and other homeownership requirements.
