Handyman, cleaning company Sometimes Spouse relaunches services
A company wants to make one thing clear: it is still not an escort service.
Instead, it’s here for your crafting and cleaning needs.
Sometimes Spouse first launched its services for Springfield and the surrounding area in 2017 but didn’t get the ball rolling until early July, said Crystal Stewart, a co-founder.
The previous owner of the local office lost his franchise license and the Texan home office acquired it again in 2018, she said.
Sometimes a spouse “is not an escort service”, according to a press release.
It took some time to find the right people for the job, but Stewart said they finally found them with the Sarcoxie couple, Michael and Holly Ogle. They started the company because of Michael Ogle’s brother and wife in Waco, Texas. Max and Christy Ogle – and Stewart – sometimes started Spouse in 2013.
“They did this for six years and told us about it, but we just never made commitments or talked about it,” said Holly Ogle.
Holly Ogle said they visited Texas earlier this year and decided to participate.
“We just decided that we can step in so we can help other families put their families first and that we can work together as a family,” said Holly Ogle.
Since launching July 1st, Michael and Holly Ogle and their daughter have helped set up gates, clean gutters, and lay tiles in residential and commercial properties.
“We started working straight away,” said Holly Ogle.
In addition to the handyman services, “Sometimes Spouses” also offers cleaning, packaging, organization, house and pet care and much more.
“Other things came up that we didn’t specialize in,” said Holly Ogle. “For us, I let them know that we don’t know how to deal with it.”
Michael Ogle said they are paid by the hour and come with estimates.
“We’re doing this job within that time frame,” said Michael Ogle. “If we don’t do that, we won’t charge more than that.”
The goal is to treat others the way they would like to be treated, he said.
“We’re trying to keep a good Christian background and do what people want, and it seems difficult to do,” said Michael Ogle. “It seems like the younger people who show up don’t have the hands-on experience we had as adults, I think. We’re ready to help and if they’re ready to work with us, we’re ready to teach too while we’re doing it. “
Although the couple still work as power systems technicians and substitute teachers, it was nice to work as a family with Sometimes spouses, said Holly Ogle.
“We have time in the vehicle, traveling and talking and not being put in front of the TV or on our phones,” she said. “It feels very good to know that you have helped someone achieve something.”
