I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur. It took 20 years of working in Corporate America to make my way to self employment, but I’m so thankful to be where I am today.
I started my carpet cleaning journey in 2016 when I bought into a national franchise. With no prior experience in carpet cleaning, the franchise provided me with the template and information I needed to get started.
I quickly built up a solid customer base and started to learn more and more about my trade through specialized training classes, networking with other cleaners and through my own research into products, techniques and equipment.
After a few years, I realized that the ongoing cost outweighed the benefits of being part of the franchise. Starting over was a scary proposition, but a risk I was willing to take. Being independent affords me the opportunity to further my craft and bring more value to my customers.
