My Entrepreneurial Story

My Entrepreneurial Story
I get asked often about how I got in to the cleaning business, and why I opened a business up in the first place, how old I was, etc. So, here’s my story, explaining how I became and entrepreneur and the path that took me there.

I was really tired when I shot this, just FYI.

I really encourage entrepreneurship, and would love to know if you are thinking about becoming one. It’s a great choice – if you up for the task!

Do you have any specific questions about my story?

I hope you enjoy!

    Thank you for doing this video. I just wanted to let you know that you inspired me (after viewing this video about a year and a half ago) to quit a job I was terribly unhappy at. I went back to school to do cosmotology and am now self employed! I’m about to start advertising on our local radio station. So I just wanted to reach out and say thanks for being so inspiring!

    This video has made me want to push myself to be an entrepreneur as well. I have been out of school for a while and the job market has not been promising. I have learned that I am a perfectionist and think too much for my field. So I believe instead of dumbing myself down I should start a business that meets my standards. I have been scared but since I too don’t have kids or mortgage I believe now is as good a time as any. I’m scared of how to start and just hoping I can pay my bills and eat while I do this. I know you’re busy and probably won’t get to read this but I wanted to thank you. If I do get to make something of myself I will totally shout out that you were the inspiration!!

    Wonderful video, love it. As well as the regular cleaning videos. If I may thouh, it might be just me, but the background music (in all the videos) is really distracting. Maybe.. lower the volume?

    you are very inspirational, I work as housekeeper and I always want to be the boss, but this job most ppl around me see it as a low kind type of work and they make me feel the same, I tried to go school and couldn’t afford it , I got a job at edible arrangements and learned a lot and I loved it, but the payment was bad and I was doing a lot. I just started my own company doing the fruit covered in chocolate and is hard for me bc I don’t know a lot ppl who I can get help to grow or advice me I do everything at home , the few orders I sold just covered the money I invested. I need help and advise. I love what I do . thank you for sharing this!

    this is one of your best vids. Your technical vids about cleaning are great but this one definitely makes one think about where one is in life and what they are doing.

    My husband and I have an idea to put aside some money for each of our children to have the experience of starting a business while in late high school. Doesn’t matter if it fails or succeeds; we think they would each learn a lot.

    The thing that is keeping me from starting my own business – apart from money – is the negative self-talk and that I am not the tough/shark type of person most entrepreneurs seem to be, you know, the ones that always have a card up their sleeve and that care more about their money and business than people. Sorry for sounding stereotypical and prejudicial. How can you be a business person and social/caring at the same time?

    And I think you have solved one of my biggest problems with saying “my accountant”, i.e. I always worried that I would have to do all the accounting myself unaidedly which is not my stronghold at all. So you actually can be an entrepreneur and get help with the accounting.

    I found it odd that you were playing store at 5 or 6 years old with fake credit cards. I never played with credit cards as a kid. Maybe Monopoly money or money I earned or was given as a gift but not fake credit cards. Kind of scary for little kids to be playing with credit cards because they could be over or uncharging people for their toys. Also a credit card does not tell you about a limited budget for spending where as money even play money you are given only so much to work with.
