Andrew Camarata interview - T.P.J.P by Sid Phillips

I had the pleasure of interviewing Andrew Camarata who has amassed a following centred around his passion to build, fix and destroy. For those that do not know him he has established a successful Property Maintenance business ‘Camarata Property Maintenance’ and has built a container castle in which he lives.

Andrew discusses with me his story of how he got to where he is today and shares advice to people looking to follow in his footsteps. We also discuss some of the equipment he uses for NOcds and his plans for the future.

  • I love Andrews feelings towards patreon accounts. Doesn’t want free money but a company giving products for advertising is different. This man is different and above most ytube people who want free handouts and ask for them every video. I’ve never heard him ask viewers to subscribe, hit 👍 button or give to anything for nothing. He doesn’t even want to sell merchandise, he is not a beggar. He is an HONEST AMERICAN who believes in the American way. God continues to bless you every day, we Subscribers are proud to be here with you. Thank you Andrew

  • Been watching Andrew's channel from just before lockdown and I keep being amazed how down to earth he is. Every video is not only entertaining, but you actually learn something. You know it's gonna be good when he starts with: "So the job at hand today is ... " and then ends with: "Well off to the next job, right Levi..." Love how he treasures Levi and Codie and always involves them as the final inspectors after the jobs are complete.

  • When Andrew said “ I did not do so well in some classes on high school like English and Spanish. I did not learn a drop of Spanish that was a waste of time.” I could relate to that a lot because I took one semester of Spanish and I dropped out I did not learn a drop of it.

  • This in scripture, would be quoted as, “do everything you do, as unto the Lord!” You can certainly put a price on materials, labor and more subjectively, time. You cannot put a price on your character and integrity, because they are priceless! Own them in full, sell them cheaply, or give them away! Andrew is, knowingly or not, a great example!!!

  • What impressed me immediately about Andrew, was watching the video of him being hired to construct a driveway. Now in order to this, he had to remove numerous stumps and debris before he could even begin the actual driveway. He NEVER did the minimum work necessary to complete the job! He ensured the debris was removed and the location was then smoothed, contoured, etc. When he dumped the stumps into a gully on the property, he did so with thought and care, even afterward ensuring the gully was smoothed, contoured and landscape ready! This is how men use to do business! “I am going to complete every aspect of this job, as if I were working on my very own property!” “I am going to, instead of the minimums, provide the maximums!” “I understand the importance of, and the imperative’s why, paying attention to EVERY detail is paramount!” Finally, “I perform every single task of work, whether for me, family, friends, or customers with this mindset... My goal is to do this job better than it has ever been done before!”

  • The thing with Andrew is he doesn't play up to the camera and become a fake character for views like so many other NOcdsr's do. He's genuine and 100% himself all the time and the work he does alone makes the content entertaining enough that he doesn't need to play up to the camera even if he wanted to. And he actually works for his money which makes what he does respectable unlike most other NOcdsr's who sit on their butt and think editing videos is hard 'work'. Look at what Andrew can accomplish in a day AND he edits his own videos on top of that and never complains. That's a real hard-working man right there and you can't compete against it.

  • Trolls are one thing, but there are plenty of valid criticisms for AC's work, and techniques. More "armchair mechanics" should point out the flaws, because, astoundingly to me, some people seem to watch his videos for tips, or as how-to videos Best to be viewed as documentaries of what he does, not how things _should_ be done.
