I'm I to young to own a successful commercial cleaning business?

Would a commercial client allow a 24 year old business owner clean their facilities. . I know I'm not 18 or anything but I'm still considered a young business owner.


Thanks


Am I*

I'm sure it's fine. Just be professional and mature. I think people respect young ambitious people.

I'm nearly 30 years old but most people think I'm barley 20. While I haven't started my business yet, I've done a lot of work for commercial and residential clients. Often on my own. I just act professionall, courteous and do a good job and people are usually impressed.

Also, I wish I had started a business while I was younger. I say go for it.

Im 22 and have not had a problem ever.. Most people will touch base with you over the phone so age is not an option.. You sell your cleaning job on the phone, then bid it in person.. For all they know you are just a sales person..

You ARE too young, if you act like a 24 year old...But acting is just that.

People love watching young people work! Heart, Passion, And desire are 3 traits people love to see, and it makes them confident they are choosing the right person to do that service for them. Rather than a 50 yr old guy who isn't driven, or have any communication skills anymore. They would choose you over any day! Im young my self though lol
