We had the good fortune of connecting with Thomas James Metaxotos and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Thomas James, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I find risk taking to be an essential part of growth and development. When you take a risk and step out of your comfort zone you are forcing yourself to learn and grow through whatever endeavor you are pursuing. You won’t always necessarily obtain the reward you were seeking, but you will certainly always learn some type of lesson that you can apply towards your future operations. Learning what not to do is just as important as learning what to do. As long as you don’t repeat the same mistake and learn from your mistake, each of your failures will serve as a piece of knowledge that you can apply in similar situations. Like they say, where there’s no risk, there is no reward. Risk is the epitome of growth.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a professional contractor that provides Moving, Cleaning, and Handyman Services for both Commercial and Residential properties. What sets me apart is my absolute dedication to satisfying my customers and my relentless drive to do good for myself and those around me. I always make sure I am outperforming expectations. My team of expert contractors and I are extremely hardworking and personable people and we always do whatever it takes to make sure our customers are absolutely pleased. We make it very clear how much value there is in our services. We are perfectionists that provide quality services and we are extremely fair. To get where I am today professionally, it took years of hard work. I worked for numerous different businesses and learned the ins and outs of the industry. After one of my employers started to act crooked in his business practices, I decided to take the leap and start my own venture. Then, Demigod Professional Cleaning Services LLC was born! I was always a huge fan of Greek mythology, and it was the influence for the name of my business. In Greek mythology, Demigods were people that locals considered to be half man and half god due to their work ethic and abilities to seamlessly complete tasks that appeared to be impossible. My team and I always complete even the most difficult of jobs with ease while maintaining positive attitudes and communication skills. It was not easy to make this dream a reality. It took a lot of trial and error. There was a lot of bumps in the road and discouraging factors. But like a Demigod would have done, I pushed through even the worst of the trials and came out on top. I have learned that no matter what setbacks come your way, and no matter how discouraging things may be, never give up. Your hard work will pay off. Demigod Professional Cleaning Services LLC is more then just a team of contractors. We are a group of friends and visionaries that are here to provide quality services for those in need without the lack of delivery. We are here to grow with our customers, and with our community. There is never a moment in time that we are not doing whatever we can to improve our lives and the lives of others. We do all that we do with Passion and with Love. Our self-discipline, work ethic, and genuine interest in all that we help and all that we do is what sets us apart.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Cottonwood is an amazing town with a lot to offer. As an outdoors enthusiast, the city never displeases. If you are planning a trip to Cottonwood I would recommend kayaking the Verde River. The Verde River is beautiful and surrounded by picturesque nature. There is also horseback riding available. You can also hike or go off-roading in the Mingus Mountains. At the end of the day I like to visit Old Town Cottonwood to grab a drink and a bite to eat. Old Town Cottonwood is a strip of restaurants and stores located in the center of town. Bing’s Burger Station is definitely one of my favorites.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family definitely deserves recognition in my shout-out. My parents, brothers, wife, and childhood best friend have all given me purpose and a drive to do as much as I can for the betterment of us all. Anytime I need motivation, opinions, or a kick in the right direction, they are always right by my side to make sure that I stay on track. No matter what I pursue they always give me their full support and I am absolutely grateful for that.
