Many owners of cleaning company owners start their business with the hopes of growing their company to the point where they have more monetary and financial freedom, but end up with a company that brings them nothing but stress and more problems. It’s important to know what you can do to avoid this from the get-go, as well as how to get yourself out of this type of situation. That’s why Mike is here today to cover one of the biggest cleaning company killers- burnout.
A lot of people will tend to focus on things they’ve heard like, ‘Business won’t be profitable for years’, or ‘you have to work 80+ hours a week to properly manage your business’ and while that may be true for a lot of people, it doesn’t have to be. The reality is it is exactly what you tolerate. If you tolerate misery and your company running you, then you will reap what you sow. If you are intolerant of that and decide that you won’t let that happen, then it won’t happen. Having a powerful mindset is essential as an entrepreneur, as Mike has touched on many times. Instead of focusing on the excuses, take charge of your business and find out what you can do to grow, part of which is what you’re doing right now- Congrats!

The next idea that is going to hold you hostage is the idea that you are always going to be stuck. Mike does breakthrough calls with members of cleaning nation (if you would like to find out more, click here) and nothing is more fun for him than getting calls with business owners that feel like they’re stuck, and being able to show them that there is hope. You will be stuck as long as you believe that your stuck, and as long as you’re unwilling to change and grow, and do something different. If you’re committed to doing what you’re already doing, then you are committed to getting what you’ve been getting.
Another hole that many members of cleaning nation have fallen into is that they have to be cleaning for their business to run. Some people believe that no one can clean like they can, some believe that their customers would be upset, whatever the reason, it shouldn’t stop you from getting out of the cleaning side of your business if that’s what you really want. If your goal is growing your company, then you should be focusing the majority of your time working on your company, rather than in it. Setting up systems and giving your employees more control can be daunting, whereas cleaning is a lot easier, but if you are really looking to grow your company, it is absolutely essential.
