John comes from the elevator trade where he spent many years installing, servicing, and modernizing his many clients working for large companies in the Maritimes. He realized that his business calling may lay elsewhere when clients began to ask him if he did any residential work?
One day he decided to say yes, and the idea of Maritime Accessibility was formed.
In our discussion, John shares his personal journey and how the thoughts and stigma of potential accessibility challenges that he may have faced led him to formulate his own philosophy on how to help his future clients.
This philosophy is quite simple but oftentimes forgotten in today’s world and we had a fantastic conversation around the right way that he and his partner (and son), Julian, conduct their business …. services may include (but not exclusive to) taking ticks out of their cats!
Recently we also learn that John’s mom has taken a fall and how this has affected their lives to look after mom and how they related their learnings to ensure her future safety.
It is the little things of simple communication and follow through that are the foundations of Maritime Accessibility and the fact that people purchase from people and when a business is aligned with those concepts they are better situated for success.
We talk about the importance of a business being able to make money to service clients quickly, safely, and timely. An important concept as the Aging in Place sector continues to grow and service talent continues to be a tough commodity to find.
We also talked about MA and their plans for growth without losing site of what is at the base of their business.
If you are in the Greater Halifax area and you need Aging in Place assistance, please contact John through Maritime Accessibility.
