How awesome would it be if you had a certified and experienced handyman at your fingertips, 24-7, 365 days a year? Being an all around handyman myself, Diesel Mechanic in the United States Air Force, I constantly get fielded with questions from friends and family with their everyday problems at home, or with their vehicles. Then it hit me! We have Doctors at our fingertips that we can chat with over live video, why not with our everyday issues that we run into at home, work, or with our vehicles.
My goal is to setup an app where you can pick a category you need some quick advice with, whether it's installing a dryer, changing the oil in your lawnmower, or even what tire pressure should I be running on my car. To even help diagnosing troublesome vehicle problems over video! Which is nearly impossible through a simple phone call.
In the app you will be connected with a specialist in the category you need help with. The specialist will walk you through your issue and help you get it figured out. Once you're finished, you will rate the specialist. This will ensure the next user is getting quality advise and help.
Finally, you're probably asking. How will this generate profitability? We will use a subscription based concept and the specialist will receive a percentage back depending on how much time they have spent with the customers, and their ratings!
All funding will go towards building the app, patents if applicable, marketing and launch.

Risks and challenges
The most unique challenge I believe I will face is getting experienced and certified technicians to join. We will use an extreme vetting process mirroring a job interview with references required and documented experience. I believe once I get over the initial hump and the app is live it will become much easier. The rating system will ensure we retain the great and rid of the bad.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
