Chez Rossi, founder of The Ultimate Handyman found a way to transform his hobby into helping others. He says, “I started Ultimate Handyman back in December of 2004. Initially I started the site because a close friend of mine was constantly asking me DIY questions. He never has to ask me now! I just decided to make the website on a whim; I didn’t really expect it to take off as it has. I realised that as a full time maintenance engineer I had a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise that I could transfer to people.
“I wanted my videos to be for the everyday homeowner; the hardworking man, busy working parents or the modern businesswoman living alone that needs a project completed. It can often be quite traumatic for first timers because of all the lingo, equipment, tools and processes involved but I find if you just keep it simple, people grasp the concepts quite quickly. It helps people to save money and really gives them confidence in their abilities to fix and maintain their own home. It gives me a lot of satisfaction knowing that I can help people do it for themselves.”
With a selection of over 310 videos to choose from, viewers can look up required parts to complete a job and in the rare instance that the Ultimate Handyman has not provided the answer, they can join the forum and ask questions. The channel’s charismatic host has pulled in a loyal following that turn to him for all of their DIY requirements.
Chez adds, “I think it’s important that we increase our knowledge and expertise of DIY so that homeowners can feel confident to undertake such challenges themselves.”
