Our What & Why

What We Do & Why We Do It

If you’ve heard me talk about Rent Sons, read the newspaper articles, or saw our sweet video (feat. John Dawson), then you might have an idea about what we do as a business– We complete odd jobs for our neighbors for one hourly rate.

Sure, I can’t say everything we do is fun or comfortable. We clean out overcrowded garages, we paint houses in the hot summer sun, we pull weeds for hours until our backs hurt.

But we show up for every single job…pumped to get to work.

We believe there’s value in manual labor. We love helping our neighbors and helping young people make extra money. But we are so much more than a “hands for hire” business.

That’s what we do, but that’s not why we do it.

I started Rent Sons because I saw an opportunity to provide a service for people in my community, but also to help other young adults discover what it means to live well.

I remember having everything I thought I wanted yet feeling like life was incredibly empty. In those moments, I realized I was lacking the key components that brought me true joy. The big contracts, the money and the popularity was nice…But I was sleep-deprived and burnt out. I missed my community.

I started this company because I wanted to help young adults realize that there’s more to life than chasing fame and wealth. At Rent Sons, we show young people how to transition from a life of bopping, to a purposeful life full of community, hard work, and unconditional love.

In an age where young people are increasingly disconnected from each other, anxious about their future, and struggling to navigate life’s transitions, Rent Sons is creating a way for them to work hard with people in their community, build intentional friendships, and become purposeful about the direction of their life.

We want to share our heart with you, our Neighbors and supporters, so we’ve created this Heart of the Business series to help you get to know us a little better. You’ll discover why we embrace manual labor, why we say bopping will kill you, and a story about Mrs. Lemonade, one of my first customers.
