Former IT consultant Paul Reinsch decided he needed a change of lifestyle. For some time he had wanted to find the work/life balance that so many of us aspire to and before long an opportunity presented itself that seemed to ‘tick all the boxes.’
A Gutter-Vac franchise with an existing client base in and around Frankston, Langwarrin, Mt. Eliza, and Carrum Downs was for sale. ‘It seemed to stack up really well’ Paul says, ‘what’s more, a close friend of mine who owns and operates a Gutter-Vac franchise said I would be mad not to take it up.’
It was Paul’s wife Julia who closed the deal and the couple now work closely together, with Paul responsible for field work and quoting while Julia looks after the office and admin.
Cleaning gutters may seem a long way from IT and the rag trade but sometimes you just have to lead with your heart.
