What made you choose this type of business? How did you get started?
“We got started by working for other people and getting experience on our belts. We talked about it for a while. Then decided to go out and plan and we eventually got our business license and all the necessary tools we needed for cleaning!”
What is your background? Education, Work Experience
“My back ground is I have been all over the map. I used to clean, then I went into retail, then I was on oilfield, now I’m back to cleaning. As for education, I went to highschool, then college for psychology and massage therapy. ”

“Worked with other companies along the way. Talked to successful business owners and followed their advice!”
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out in your field, what would it be?
“My advice, is that it’s hard. We are still trying to get clients. But you need persistence. And nothing comes easy. Everyone will say no, people knock you down, and no one will give you all the answers. Persistence is resistance. You push against the people saying you won’t make it. And we haven’t made it quite yet, but we are still pushing!”
Any closing thoughts?
“People need to realize we are a small company. But we are honest and hard workers. We will go above and beyond, and will work with you. We just need that chance.”
