Hi, I'm new here!

Hello everyone! I'm Layla and I'm new to the cleaning business. I'm actually in the process of starting up a new cleaning franchise and have been exploring so different services. I'm here to learn from the pros, so thank you in advance for your help.

Layla,

Is there a reason you want to pay a percentage to someone else when you can do it all for yourself and call your own shots?

You can tell I am an independent house cleaner, and own an independent service of my own. I have heard a lot of bad press on franchises not working for people very well, so I ask out of respect. Please don't take offense! I just wondered what the draw was overall for you to go with a franchise?

Thanks for being the devil's advocate Torrey. I really appreciate it. I actually have been going back and forth for awhile about this one. I'm not so sure I'm going to jump into a franchise, but right now it would definitely be the easiest way to get free advertising and get my name out there.
