I've never seen anything in exact words that say you can not do repairs on a house that you inspect. However, if you read the TREC rules, particularly:
535.220. Professional Conduct and Ethics
(3) The inspector should conduct his business in a manner that will assure his client of the inspector's independence from outside influence and interests that might compromise his ability to render a fair and impartial opinion regarding any inspection performed.
It can be argued that if you are doing repairs on homes you inspect that you're inspection is possibly influenced by a motivation to perform repairs on the property.
If you haven't done so already, you should download a copy of the TREC rules. You will need to know that material for the test.
TREC # 6636
