Thanks Converse EDC for supporting local businesses like ours. Yesterday a client reached out to us elder lady that the water at her house doesn't shut off and is stipped. She looked at Edc magazine from April I believe and found us #pjphandyman. We were able to help her. We asked her how she found us and she gave me local magazine. Thanks for helping us help people and for also getting us work locally.
