How many times do we look around our homes throughout the year thinking, “Wow, this place is a mess”? Without a doubt, life tends to get away from us; projects we started end up in an unfinished heap, we gain (or lose!) weight but do not get rid of our old clothes even if we can no longer wear them, kids bring in toys and crafts… Life can be a mess. However, every year, we get to watch the world start over. Flowers come back to life. Animals come back out to play. Mother Nature reinvents herself…so why can’t we?
Eventually I got a letter stating that I was accepted into the college. I never replied back. But shortly before the fall semester started I received a letter from Federal financial aid saying that they would give me enough to cover going to school full time. That was it, I was certain of what I wanted and I went through the entire process of orientation, choosing classes, and registering within about week and then…I was a college student.
Flyers work very well. You can produce an attractive flyer on your home computer and print them out. Great for frustrated customers who are not actively seeking cleaning services. They see the flyer and think its a great idea. A simple website works very well. You can link it to the flyers and your business card too. I make my own, or you can have them produced cheaply online. I use my ads on a local program in my area, linked to a website with email access. This also is linked to Google, if you sign up for Google’s local area merchants link its really helpful. I have the number one for housekeeper in my area.
Another great opportunity you have right now is the procurement of new state of the art equipment. Machine builders are feeling the crunch too. They are reducing costs to keep their plants running and retain their employees. As a result, there are some really good deals out there on machine tools.
I thought it best to work for someone else first, before I invested in my own business. I checked out ads on the net, looking at programs in my area. Later on, I advertised there as well. I worked for a woman who had been in the cleaning services Hastings business for 10 yrs. She had hundreds of clients and a team of 6 girls that worked full time hours.
Get the kids involved; educating them to do easy chores like storing their toys after use or making their bed every morning. Your youngsters’s involvement with simple home chores at an early age will not only teach them self-discipline, however may also instill in them the significance of a clean environment. That is like killing two birds with one stone. You have instilled good moral values in your kids as well as kept a clean home.
First of all, you don’t have to do this alone. This is a great way for your whole family to get involved. You can make this fun for all your family members, and spend quality time together, while you are doing something useful. And you will see. House will be clean much faster.
Finally there are house cleaning services in most communities that can come in on a weekly basis and give your house that deep cleaning that you really want.
