Handy Has Many Professional Workers To Complete Many Home Services

Although there are many services that clean homes, services that go beyond just cleaning a home are ones that are in high demand, such as Homejoy Inc. Even though Homejoy Inc. knew the type of business they were getting into and expected it to be successful, they lost out because they are now filing for bankruptcy, despite getting $38 million in funding for their startup. Homejoy Inc. announced in the recent past that they would be closing their business, but filing for bankruptcy has finalized everything. Unfortunately, Homejoy Inc. suffered from some of the rules and regulations in the countries that they established their business, which required them to consider their workers as employees. Although Homejoy Inc. has gone under, businesses like Handy have thrived.

The reason why Handy has become so successful compared to Homejoy Inc. is because of the fact that they do many different services, other than cleaning. Persons who need their homes painted, furniture assembled, vacuuming, cleaning, and repair services can call Handy and schedule the services to be completed as soon as the very next day. With on-demand services that are located in many different cities, it’s no wonder why Handy is doing so well. Handy also works with only the best and most professional workers, meaning that the customers will benefit knowing that they have someone who is certified to do the work they are paid for.

It’s possible to do a consultation before having any work performed in the home, and all the person needs to do is go to the Handy’s Facebook to get additional information. Once the work is scheduled, then the person scheduling the work will know when the workers are coming, what kind of work will be done, and how much the work will cost. Those who choose to work with Handy will get the best possible services as well as the best workers, so they’ll know that everything they want to have completed will be done to the best of the workers’ ability. With competitive prices and excellent service, Handy is pushing forward as one of the best home service companies out there today.

Sam Tabar is an Exceptional Financial Strategist

Sam Tabar lives in New York City and is a well-known and leading attorney and has held many high profile jobs as a capital strategist, all of which listed on LinkedIn. Sam studied at Oxford University and graduated from there with honors. He had always held a passion for the law, so enrolled at Columbia University as a law student when he left Oxford. He began to professionally practice law after he graduated from Columbia.

Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom a very prestigious law firm hired Sam directly after he graduated from Columbia. He was able to use his judgement and ability to think quickly, as well as his background in business law to advice clients on the formation of hedge funds while with them. He was able to structure the funds, set up agreements on investment management, advice clients on corporate compliance and provide them with information on business regulations. Sam was really good at his job; however, he began to realize what he really wanted to be involved in was finance.

Sam resigned from Skadden and joined, PMA Investment Advisors in Hong Kong. PMA Investment retained him as legal counsel for several months before giving him the position of Managing Director of Business Development. CrunchBase shows pretty clearly that this position suited Sam’s strengths and experience as he was relations director of a $2 billion hedge fund. His job entailed all the work regarding the promotion of the hedge fund as well as managing relations with the investors.

The challenges of this position were big as Sam had to monitor over 2,000 investors and personally ensure they were kept interested in the investments. He performed this well and was able to collect more than 1.2 billion more in funds. Sam stayed with PMA for about six years and then moved to Bank of America Merrill Lynch in East Asia and the Pacific Islands in 2011.

At Bank of America, Sam continued with the type of work he does best– investor relations regarding strategies for hedge funds. He was able to add 1,250 more names to his accumulated list of investors that he would be able to appeal to for capital investments.

Sam left Bank of America in 2012 and moved on to be Director of Adanac. They are an investment firm that provides funds for start-ups and buys real estate. He went from there to Senior Associate for Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP in New York.  You can find more info in Sam’s bio on

The New Tipping Feature of Handy is Great

Handy has announced that a tipping feature will be added to their application. Tipping has been conducted through the transfer of cash and change in the past, but many cleaners end up going home without a tip because it is difficult to align the schedule of a cleaner and a home owner to make it so they will be there at the same time. Many cleaners prefer that nobody is inside the home when they clean, so leaving tips has been hard. Handy has changed this, fortunately.

People who work for Handy already make around eighteen dollars an hour before Handy takes their twenty percent cut, but even that is a high amount to be paid to clean a house. The great part about this tipping feature is that Handy will not make any money of the tips, as they are transferred for free from customer to cleaner.

Instead of encouraging people to tip with cash all of the time, Handy decided to rid away with that portion of their business. Many people refuse to carry much cash, if any at all, because it is easily lost and stolen.

Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua, the two founders of this great app named Handy, originally met when they were boarded together at Harvard Business College. Like many other great minds had done — although dropping out of college is not recommended — Mr. Dua and Mr. Hanrahan felt as if leaving college to pursue this business opportunity would bear fruit, which has proved to be true.

Customers have been prompted that they do not have to leave a tip and that most cleaners do not expect tips. Everybody would like a tip for providing a better service, but unfortunately, this does not always happen. As the preliminary studies have shown, though, cleaners are expected to make a good chunk of money from this feature.

Those interested in using Handy to arrange someone to clean their home should rest assured that not just anybody can get listed on Handy. There is a grueling application process that accepts less than five percent of applicants.
