Inspired by our blog at Bob Allen, an appliance repair company in Ontario has reached out to show their gratitude. This is a story about how, during a pandemic, an appliance repair company recruited themselves to take action and innovate, staying on top of the game.
If you don’t know what we mean by “recruit yourself” then check out our page dedicated to explaining what that means in the menu above. Also, this post can give some insight, as will most of the posts on our blog. But, essentially, recruiting yourself means motivating yourself without the support of an external factor. It’s something you do for yourself because you want to.
In Kingston, Ontario, Canada, a local appliance repair company did just that. Despite the pandemic, they’ve been working hard to keep their business afloat, and it’s all because they were inspired by our lesson. Email correspondence between me and and this amazing company has revealed some of things this appliance repair company has done to stay afloat, and we’ll share them now with the hope of inspiring other small businesses around the world.
5 Things this Appliance Repair Company Did to Recruit Themselves

I’m very proud of these Canadians for spreading motivation. We may have inspired them, but now they’re inspiring us with their effort, and we’re so grateful they reached out to us.
