How many times have you had a problem around the house and picked up the phone and called a repairman? Let’s say your pilot light went out on your water heater or furnace. You had a dripping faucet or a toilet that continually ran? I had a riding lawn mower that backfired and stopped running. What did I do? I went out and spent thousands of dollars on a new riding lawnmower . . . not. I did a web search, found a YouTube video on how to replace the timing key and fixed it myself. In so doing, I opened a treasure trove of information on How to Do It Yourself.
What I want to accomplish in this post is to make you aware of the vast wealth of information you can tap into with a few keystrokes. But first, in all fairness to my many friends in the North Paulding Networking group, of which I am a member, let me say; you need to check out their Facebook page. This group of small businessmen and women are the finest people you could know. If you need quality work at an affordable price or want to have a health and beauty consultant come and tell you about their products, check them out at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/166752240026448/
Now, here are some other sites to check out for DIY ideas and links.
> The Home Depot has a link – www.homedepot.com/c/diy_projects_and_ideas
> Lowes has a link – http://www.lowes.com/how-to-library.
> There is even a network site called – http://www.diynetwork.com where you can put in your project and get scores of ideas on how to, “Watch and Learn,” as the site calls it.
Rather than spend a lot of money hiring people (who you may or may not know) to come into you home and fix, replace or build something, why not check with the North Paulding Network group or take the plunge and Do IT Yourself.
