Numbers don’t lie.
I appreciate all of the inquiries from potential members. I appreciate the fact that the NHWA is a new and unproven entity. I understand that people don’t like to be the “first” when it comes to joining things. It’s only natural. I, however, don’t go along with such conservative thinking. How can I? Not only did I move to a different state to start a Home Watch business in South Carolina. I made a life changing decision and took a chance. I did my research, but it was a major gamble. People weren’t familiar with the Home Watch concept in the Myrtle Beach area. I needed a home watch service, but there was no one to help me with my vacation condo. So I gambled on my idea, and formed Coastal Carolina Home Watch. I’ve seen other companies try to start up and fail…quickly. I have heard about poor service and ethics of some of these “failed” enterprises. Let’s face it…if it was that easy, everyone would be doing it. Those short timers can cause irreperable damage to our industry.
So why form the National Home Watch Association?
Doesn’t it make sense that the “real” Home Watchers who are dedicated to doing the right thing by their customers, should be able to set themselves apart from the pack? What about our having a uniied voice for our industry? Or having the ability to share ideas and experiences with other accredited business? What about being represented on a website that will not only reinforce who we are and what we do…but also gives potential clients a direct link to your website? The NHWA promises to be a presence that will help grow not only the industry as a whole, but also grow accredited businesses.
