How I Got into the Cleaning Business
Cleaning houses wasn't what I always wanted to do. What I wanted to do was write books.
I thought that since I had been cleaning the kitchen floor for my mother, I thought I would start a business cleaning kitchen floors. I didn't have a van. I didn't have a truck, or even a car. With a bucket, rags and a bottle of Spin and Span, I got on a city bus to meet my first client.
The truth is. Cleaning kitchen floors wasnít enough to sustain a business. I didnít know that at the time, but I didnít need to. Clients would always ask me if I did other jobs like cleaning windows, ďNo,Ē I would say, ďbut if you show me, Iíll do it.Ē
Well, that response worked. I simply was honest and said no to cleaning I didnít know how to do but was willing to learn.
I soon discovered cleaning walls was the right way to go into the cleaning business, but all I had to do was get in the door of the cleaning business through cleaning kitchen floors.
If you are thinking about going into the cleaning business or any business for that matter, find a way in then work your way up from there.
