Meet Alan Weisner of We Show Up! in Roslindale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alan Weisner.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I had been in education for 37 years and decided to change careers. After working with a career counselor I decided to ‘put out my shingle’ to do home repairs and painting. By working hard, offering a very good value for the services rendered we have succeeded in establishing ourselves as a solid business. We currently have two employees besides myself and the scope of our work continues to broaden and deepen.

We have been specializing more and more on bathroom remodels – full gut to full rebuild.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The main struggle along the way has been finding reliable, skillful individuals to employ. Finding work has not been an issue but finding associates who will ‘show up’ is a challenge. Also, finding employees who have a skill set congruent with our work is a challenge. We currently have two such people.

Please tell us about We Show Up!
First of all, we show up – just as the name says. We do high quality work, are reasonably priced, are willing to go the extra mile and we never stop working to leave our clients pleased. With my background as an educator, we make it a point to educate our clients about what we are doing and why. We also make it a point to indicate any issues that we discover or reveal in the process of completing a project. We have won the Best of Boston Home Award, and several Angie’s List Super Service Awards.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I would have looked for an associate sooner.
