Starting a Christmas Lighting Company...
I started my Christmas lighting company, Handsome Holiday Heroes, 5 years ago in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Amongst family and friends, I was and still am notoriously known as a lover of the holidays. It was a friend who encouraged me to channel my enthusiasm and decorate peoples houses for Christmas. They said, “I bet you’d be really good at it.” So I took them up on that bet…

In the fall of 2013 I came up with Handsome Holiday Heroes. The original name was Hometown Holiday Heroes but I thought “Handsome” was funnier. And… by the way… I’m not the handsome one, my employees are.
I first offered our services in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. By the end of Christmas 2013 I had collected a handful of clients. At the time I thought it was a fun way to make extra money for Christmas presents for family and friends. Little did I know God had bigger plans for my little business.
In 2014 I did research and learned more about the industry. To my surprise, I found successful Christmas lighting companies all across the US. I started to embrace the idea that holiday decorating could be a legitimate business. That year we began offering our services all across Northwest Arkansas.
From 2015 to 2017, Handsome Holiday Heroes experienced massive growth. We more than quadrupled in size. We got more organized and better with our systems.
It’s 2018 and for the first time ever I am able to quit my side jobs and focus completely on what I love doing most: make peoples holidays brighter. My wife has even started helping me this season and will soon, Lord willing, join me full time.
I don’t take the credit for the success of my business. God gets all the credit. It was His blessings, His direction, and His sending me all the right people along the way that have provided me with such a wonderful group of clients.
Each holiday season I have to pinch myself. I am a self-employed business owner. I have enough work that I can provide for my family. I run a business that allows me to employ locals and help their families. And I get to work during the happiest time of the year!
Handsome Holiday Heroes is, at its core, service. We are performing a service for locals that most people don’t like doing. Because, does anyone really enjoy untangling Christmas lights and spending hours in 32-degree weather?
Hanging lights is exhausting and even dangerous. We’ve structured our business so that it’s simple for you. We do all the hard work and set your lights on autopilot. All you have to do is make hot chocolate and bask in the cheerful glow of your home.
