How to Start, Run and Grow a Successful Residential & Commercial Cleaning Business 

Hello, my name is Maria Carmen, and I have something important to tell you. I know you've probably heard these types of success stories before and are a little skeptical, but I'm telling you this is true and can really happen for you. Ten years ago, after my divorce, I needed to find a way to support myself. I was one of those individuals that never went to college or had a trade skill, so there weren't a lot of job choices for me.

What was I to do? I started looking into entry level jobs that didn't require specialized training or skills. Unfortunately, I wasn't keen on the idea of working at a fast food restaurant for minimum wage with limited potential for advancement or better pay. Then I learned about house cleaning from a friend of mine. She used house cleaning as a way to supplement their family income. However, I realized the potential to grow this into something more.

So I started taking on a few residential cleaning jobs, getting my name out there and increasing my client list. I took the time to do some research and found a way to offer some specialized services that got me paid a little extra. Before I knew it, my client list was growing beyond what I could do by myself. So I started hiring employees.

Then I realized the importance of branching out and started to take on commercial contracts. Commercial cleaning turned out to be even more beneficial to my income than residential cleaning.

Not only was I able to support myself with this work, but I was able to grow and thrive. Today, I have a company of my own with 22 employees. We take on both residential and commercial cleaning contracts. My income has grown to over $250,000 a year now. I never dreamed a simple job to help pay the bills would grow into this, but it has. It takes a little bit of work, but the benefits are there to be had i

Book could be improved

This book is very good for beginners. I think it could be improved by providing links in the description of this audiobook regarding cleaning contract templates and excel or word table for how to estimate a quote for both residential and commercial cleaning services for beginners.
I liked the book very much and appreciate author's effort.

Too dumbed down to be useful

in my honest opinion, this audio book is Patronising and too simplified to be anything other than annoying.
