Starting a new cleaning business IS challenging. It helps a lot if you have a passion for the work itself, and care about your results. I have run in to a lot of cleaning people who really do not enjoy their work - and it shows in their results. You have to be willing to work hard, and it is a physical type of job. I find it is keeping me fit, as I get older.
