Hi Everyone! I'm new here, I've been looking through all the topics and I've already found so much useful information!
I recently decided to look into starting a residential cleaning business and was so excited to find a forum where you could gain expertise from others in the same industry. I've also gained info from books and by researching other businesses in my area.
The only 'real' steps I've taken so far is to apply for my business name through the state and deciding to be a 'green' cleaning business. Other than that, I've been busy doing research on cleaning vendors, supply vendors, marketing, education, and the legalities.
I hope that as much as I learn from this forum that I will also be able to help others when I am up and running. I also wanted to say thank you to all of you who are already running successful businesses and so willingly share your experience and thoughts.
