High school is when people tend to take their first steps into the working world. Four Benicia High School students chose to not only get jobs, but they also started their own business. Doing what? Whatever people request of them.
Incoming sophomore Chris Weldon, incoming senior Jordan Carro and recent graduates Jonathan Stevens and Caleb Carro are the founders of We Do Odd Jobs, a business that does odd jobs by request throughout Solano and Contra Costa counties. These jobs include landscaping, helping people move, trimming and other tasks requested by individuals.According to Weldon, the job started as a way for him and his friends to make some extra money.“We made a little post on the ‘Benicia Happenings’ Facebook group, and then we got some work,” he said. “More and more people kept calling me and texting me requesting for us to come by and help them. After that, we decided to make it a bigger thing, and so far it’s going pretty strong.”
