Hi from PA

Hello, I'm new to forums so it's a little awkward but I have been in residential cleaning for 5 years and am in an uncomfortable, at once discouraging and exciting, place in growth. I'm in a sort-of "do or die" position. Finding clients has never been an issue but I urgently need to build a business infrastructure especially in the areas of hiring, training & quality control. Any advice is welcome as I have found this site to be most helpful already.

Thanks!

Are you suffering with financial problems or what kind of problem you are facing in establishing business infrastructure.

Hi,

Yeah, hiring is the most difficult part, especially in the lower tech job sector. Hiring slowly and firing quickly is really what needs to be done. Do as Reagan said "Trust, but verify". Focus on the clients, they are who will keep you afloat. Get their feedback and from there you can determine if you trust your employees. Always send out employees in pairs or groups of three so that you have trusted/skilled employees always in key positions of observing. It's fantastic that business is booming! But your reputation is everything, so modulate that growth so that you never lose your reputation!

What an exciting time for you!
