It sounds like you have weathered a rough storm. I know of others that weren’t as strong. I to have been in a dark place before, but I worked through it. At times it was not easy. I believe I have grown as a human through these struggles. The book “Think & Grow Rich” has definitely helped my out look on life both personal and professional. I will defiantly check out the book you have recommended. So what name do you go by?

I would classify it as general house cleaning. We take care of dust removal, clean and disinfect kitchens and bath rooms. I think the term “General House Cleaning” is subject to interpretation.

I have not yet but it’s on my to do list. I am in my truck for most of the day and try to make the most of that time by listening to books on tape/CD. So how long have you in this line of work.

Just wanted to share a lesson regarding Napoleon Hill...

Why was Napoleon Hill nearly broke at the end of his career, to be saved by W. Clement Stone hiring him to be a trainer at his company?

Because Napoleon Hill never applied a "System" to his business, and never had a "Herd". He was a speaker who would go out, speak, make money from the attendees, that's it. He was only as good as his next speech.

W. Clement Stone was in the insurance business. When he applied Hill's philosophies to the insurance business, the renewals would make him wealthy. Everytime he added a new client, his passive renewable income grew. That's the "herd" philosophy.

Napoleon Hill spoke to thousands, but never realized he needed to 1.)keep a list of people he spoke to 2.)market other things to that herd 3.)create any kind of "continuity" to capitalize on the herd. Tony Robbins today has a monthly interview product as a continuity. Hill could have done that or similar.

Cleaners must add to the "herd" with maintenance plans! The bigger the herd, the bigger your automatic renewable income. There will be a certain part of your business that will be predictable at the beginning of every month wack the credit cards.

Hope this was fun and useful :)
