Q: How did you get started on Go Green Cleaning & Maintenance Services?
I graduated from Chico State University, studying Business Finance, and jumped around from job to job looking for my ideal career. I struggled to find something I was passionate about and found myself lacking drive and ambition.
> Be patient and enjoy the process. NO company started perfectly and it does take trial and error to learn what works for your industry.
It was not until I got a kick in the butt by my now wife that I decided to take life into my own hands and start something for myself, for us. I had worked construction jobs and other trade work before I realized I did not like the way they ran their workers and their business.
After a couple of years of working for a guy in the exterior home cleaning industry, I just knew I could contribute a lot to this industry and was one I could make an impact in. Wanting to focus on environmentally responsible, and customer service based I took what I learned from my past employer and I incorporated all of the things that I liked about how he ran his business and I changed the things I didn’t like about how he ran his business.
I leaped faith with a small advertising budget and a truck. When the customers' accolades, appreciation, and confidence drove my dream I knew this was what I was destined to do. My philosophy is to treat people the way I want to be treated. This has consciously been enforced in all aspects of this business. We respond quickly, we are honest, and are competitively priced.
Although creating, building, and owning a business is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It is the most rewarding to know that your business idea and everyday practices and who you are as an owner is the reason you are successful.
