Los Alamos High School senior Brayden Stidham, 18, graduates in five days. He started his business, “Need A Hand” in the summer of 2021.
“I have lots of friends who are hardworking, and I know there are many people who need work done so I started this business to connect myself and my hardworking friends with people in need,” Stidham said. “From raking leaves to mowing yards, from helping move a couch to walking your dog, whatever you need a hand with, we can help you.”
Stidham is the sole owner of “Need A Hand” serving Los Alamos County by connecting people in need of a hand to reliable workers. Customers simply purchase a number of hours on the business’ convenient online store, provide details of the job, and someone will come out and get the job done.
“So whatever the job is, let us give you a hand,” Stidham said. “We have a group of hardworking teenagers waiting and willing to assist you in whatever tasks you need done. Helping young adults make their way in a modern-gig economy while helping people in the community is what “Need A Hand” is all about. We pay our workers well because we believe in compensating fairly for quality work.”
