Inspiration Behind Your Professional Cleaning Services?
There is this saying that if you want the best do it yourself. After I finished my O level education, I worked for several companies. At that time in life I was ready to start a business with the capital I have but then I was unable to go ahead with my plans because I have a lot of responsibilities, so I asked myself what kind of business will I do with little or no cash and that will aid me in taking care of my responsibilities while still working because I work night shift. So the came the opportunity to work as a presser for dry-cleaning firm during the day, so I took the offer, worked for a year while maintaining night duty job. The following year I started my own dry-cleaning service from home I was making money so I rented a showroom. At this stage my expenses has gone up so I said to myself wat can I do to generate more income to help keep the business runnings smoothly and that will be closely related to the dry-cleaning service am currently into and that will cost me little or no cash. The question that came to mind at that moment was what am I very good at domestically? that i can use to generate income, so clean came handy. So i called my sister told her about my idea she called a friend and that was how I was linked to someone in need of a house cleaning service, so the journey begins.
