What I did when I started was work the first week for free to prove to the client that I could do the work and be trusted...I now have 15 employees for over 20 years, and gross between $300,000 and 370,000 per year...try it, IT WORKS

This is a great way to gain business!

Also if you have any friends that own their own business you can clean or friend's of friend's that's always a great start for new references.

Try to find contracts through friends and family at first, they easier to get and will help you to build a portfolio.
Good Luck!

You have to be selling yourself and your cleaning services 24/7. Friends, family, coworkers. Everybody!
