Jean Brownhill founded Sweeten (as in "home, sweet home") in 2011 after a maddening attempt at renovating her own Brooklyn townhouse. Contractors in the network must meet a high standard and are accountable to get the work done right.

Sweeten is a free service that matches homeowners with general contractors. Jean is a trained architect and she’s figured out how to turn her skills into a much-needed service for homeowners.

 

Listen as Jean and Jenny discuss:

 

  • How Jean’s own renovation nightmare sparked her idea for a business.
  • Learn how much revenue contractors in the Sweeten network are gaining each month.
  • Why referral based contractors love how Sweeten changes their business in a good way.
  • The empowerment of a rating system for the network.
  • Why Jean decided Sweeten needs to be involved in the project from start to finish.
  • Learn the most valuable mistakes that Jean made in starting the business.
  • The important role that experts play in her business.
  • Some of Jean’s career highlights thus far.
  • Why Jean loves self-development and improving herself.
