For those of you who started off alone....
How did you do it? What motivated you to keep doing cleaning homes and/or businesses alone? What made your bad days "bad"? And when did you hire your first employee?
Please don't think of me as spoiled. I come from an office background; a skilled background in fact. I've graduated college and have degrees. This is not my only business but our one-man (two-man on weekends) cleaning business is the one I devote most energy to right now. Some days it is difficult because we all know the work we do is not easy work. It's strenuous. Lately, I've been just a little down in the dumps; feeling a little demotivated. Other days I remember that I am doing this now while I build my business and sacrifice is the name of the game.
I would love to hear your stories from beginning to end, past to present to see how you went about starting and eventually transitioning from doing all the cleaning yourself to hiring others to do the cleaning while you concentrate on growing your business behind the scenes.
Any feedback would be appreciated! Thank you.
