From Minnesota

Hello everyone,

Recently I reached a point in life where I got tired of the traditional "corporate world" I'd up until last month been employed at one of the state's most prominent non-profit and had been hypnotized by the illusion of a "salary" it took me over 2 years in that position to learn that there is no real "getting ahead" when working for someone else, especially a corporation. I am 27 and have made a beautiful family for myself, with children who deserve a father who tries through example to teach them how to be self-sufficient opposed to dependent on an employer.

I grew up in an entrepreneurial household, my father owned and operated a lawn care and snow removal business, while my mother owned and operated a cleaning business. These businesses eventually dwindled due to them growing beyond what my parents knew how to manage and operate, my father ended up allowing friends and families to manage accounts and employees while he battled health issues, my mother decided to franchise and ultimately become someone else's employee which she never knew how to do.

When I made the decision to resign from my previous position, I felt cleaning would be a great segway into the world of entrepreneurship, I took what little money I had, bought a truck, got registered with the state, insured, got equipment, business cards, magnets for truck, a new computer, printer, phone... and totally neglected to think about how I'd get business with new clients! Ha ha, this uphill battle is one I'll conquer, glad to be here among what seems to be many successful hard working people!
