If you are broke, need a job or you are “Just Over Broke” with a “J-O-B” living paycheck to paycheck trying to make ends meet, you know that you can’t keep living like this because your car needs gas and your kids needs school clothes and you are behind on your mortgage.
You try to save, but your savings can’t grow because shit happens in your life and you need all of your money to get by until the next paycheck.
Does this sound familiar? It does to me.
Although we always got by, I was always stressing out about my finances. My son asked me why I was so obsessed with money. He said, “Mom, money cannot buy you happiness!”
“Son, you are so right! Money cannot buy me or anyone else in this world happiness. However, I can never be truly happy if I am constantly stressing and worrying about where our next meal will come from or if I can pay the mortgage. I don’t obsess over money, because in reality, it’s not that important. I obsess over the FREEDOM that having more money could bring to our family.”
Happiness is not about acquiring stuff. Happiness is all about having the freedom to have experiences, build relationships, make memories with loved ones and basically enjoy what you do every day.
You will never have financial freedom by working at a job making other people money.
You earn freedom by becoming an owner.
So how do you become an owner? Well, you simply own a business. But you know that it’s not that simple or everybody would do it. Right?
Well, it’s also not that hard either.
The Residential Cleaning Industry
Starting a residential cleaning business is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to become a business owner. You can literally start making money on the first day that you service a customer. Risk is low and potential is high. You can work out of your house without a brick and mortar building and equipment and supplies are generally low cost.
The industry itself is strong and growing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job growth in the cleaning industry is predicted to grow 6% every year from 2014 to 2024. Baby boomers are starting to have difficulties in completing daily chores as they get older and families are busier than ever and looking for more family time.
As of July 2014, there were 31 million households in the industry’s target market, according to Cleaning Business Today (2014, http://www.cleaningbusinesstoday.com/blog/room-for-everyone-new-competition-for-cleaning-services-1).
There is definitely a market for residential cleaning services and that is good news for you.Get Started
