I want to thank my brother for pointing me in the right direction in this line of work. He has been there, done this, still doing it, and has all the t-shirts to prove it.
I also want to thank my daughter, Alex. She will jump at the change to go to work with me, as long as she gets paid a percentage! Alex has assisted in the cleaning of over 40,000 square feet of carpet and has seen more student housing than a college student!
I mostly want to thank my wonderful wife, Carole, for diving in with both feet and becoming an amazing business partner. Her marketing talents surpassed everyone expectations and her phone skills are untouchable in this industry. She has been my secret weapon that the competition just can’t duplicate.
Small business is always a challenge and Green Solutions is no different. We have new bridges to cross as we expand our rug cleaning operation under a second name that will be known as Harrisonburg Rug Cleaning. Carole has started her own career as a Real Estate Agent with Kline May Realty and so I am answering the phones now. I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to listen to Carole talk to many clients and I now try to emulate the master.
Every year we grow but how do we handle the volume and keep the quality.
More bridges to cross.
I guess we will see.
