Greetings from Ontario!
Hey folks, I'm new here but not new to cleaning. I've been cleaning in both the commercial and residential space since I was a kid, going on 30 years now, starting out working for my dad's janitorial company. My oldest brother took the business over and I've continued working for him off and on while also pursuing my own contracts. Oddly enough I've never gone after janitorial jobs! My wife and I have done lots of one-time and regular residential cleaning, move in/out, construction, as well as residential and commercial window cleaning.
As I'm closing in on 40 I'm thinking I really don't want to continue doing the physical labor myself for too many more years. So I'm leaning toward focusing on landing my own janitorial contracts and then...not sure if I want to hire employees, sub it out to other companies, or sell the contracts and just make money from the sales side of the business. But that's my current thought process.
Glad to find this place with all it's experienced contributors!
