It’s amazing to think of just how far Cleaning 4 Profit has come in the last few years.
It was born as nothing more than another crazy idea in the brains of Sue and myself in early May 2009 and has progressed to where we are today.
During this time frame we have created over 50 podcasts and nearly 200 articles about getting started in your own cleaning business. Some lessons are for the beginner while others touch on the more nuanced aspects of running a cleaning business.
Once you throw in the writing our book Commercial Cleaning For Beginners, the nearly complete sister book House Cleaning For Beginners and all the websites we have created, it’s hard not to notice just how far we have come.
As our site continues to grow and become even more popular, I thought it wise to take a step back and highlight some lessons from the past that you may have missed for one reason or another. Some may be a podcast while others are a post. Either way they are worth checking out.
