True Method, a locally owned and operated pool service and repair company, is adding to its team of independent business owners by turning to veterans to continue its growth. Located in Scottsdale, owner Roger Neill is looking to serve his community in more ways than one.
“The reason I have focused on veterans is that I was looking for the person who has a heart of service, and I know Veterans have that because of the choice to serve. Another reason I have decided to work with veterans is that when they retire, they are still young and looking for that second career that gives them freedom. Without quality people, it’s a challenge to continue growing,” Neill says. “Clients trust us to come into their residences and clean their pools, so the people we work with need to be trustworthy and reliable.”
Specifically, what attracted Neill to these individuals was their heart and work ethic – a combination that his clients need. Veterans and service professionals offer reliability and quality from people who have the heart to serve.
Those looking to join the True Method Independent Business Owner program don’t need pool care experience. True Method helps to train and set up each new team member as independent business owners via a limited liability corporation (LLC). Neill says his company wants every individual who works with them to know they are part of a team while also having the freedom to run and grow their own business.
Matt Brown is a retired veteran of the Army and National Guard, and he is an independent business owner that works with Neill at True Method.
“I work independently and service my pools, but working with Roger at True Method, I have support behind my business and work and can always reach out to receive advice or help,” Brown says. “I make my hours, the stress levels are low, the schedule is flexible, and it’s good money. I enjoy being outdoors, and not much experience is necessary to get started. It’s mainly about being kind to customers and comfortable doing the job, which you’ll be trained to do.”
Brown adds that there’s little overhead to worry about since True Method takes care of many business requirements. There is no extensive travel as his route keeps him located in the 85254-zip code.
Although Neill is not a veteran, he says his father was in the Air Force for 15 years. He adds that Brown has been a close friend for over 12 years and is helping him to work with veterans.
