Their Story

Mike had been in the trades for decades when he decided to start his own business, Beach House Miracles. Now, his company, which renovates high-end condominiums and beach houses in Delaware and Maryland, draws clients from all over the U.S.—even some from other countries. Those who own properties along those beaches seek their services for their customer-centric approach.

“When I started this business, I knew all of the technical stuff,” said Mike. After a conversation with a marketing guru, he realized there was much more to being a business owner. He soon learned that, “The difference between being successful and not being successful is being able to provide an experience for your client.”

The Mayhews used retirement funds to help get the business going after getting a recommendation for Guidant Financial from their accountant.

“I called Guidant and Guidant took care of everything,” said Mike.

Wife Chrissy is also instrumental in the day-to-day operations of the business. She appreciates the freedom that owning a business has provided her over the years.

“Raising a family was very important to me,” said Chrissy. “If I wanted to go to my son’s games or if I wanted to be at a field trip with them, I was able to take that time.”

In their spare time, the Mayhews volunteer with Habitat For Humanity and are currently developing a coaching program for other contractors.
