Starting Easy Peasy Cleaning

In this episode of the podcast, Mike Campion welcomes Patty Lahey, the founder of Easy Peasy Cleaning, a successful cleaning business based in North Carolina. Patty shares her journey of starting the business just a couple of years ago, in October 2022, and how it has grown to serve the residents of her town.

A Southern Charm and Entrepreneurial Spirit

Patty introduces herself with a warm Southern accent, adding to her charm. She explains that her entry into the cleaning industry stemmed from a desire for flexibility after leaving the military and becoming a mother. Cleaning was a natural choice for her, considering her knack for tidiness and the need to create her own schedule to prioritize her son.

From Joke to Full-Time Business

What started as a casual suggestion from a friend to start a cleaning business turned into something much bigger for Patty. Initially seen as a joke, she formed an LLC and ventured into entrepreneurship. Today, she proudly oversees multiple employees and runs Easy Peasy Cleaning as a full-time endeavor.

Overcoming Challenges and Seeking Help

Patty candidly discusses the challenges she faced, including struggling with employees who didn’t respect her authority and nearly reaching the point of shutting down her business. However, a turning point came when she discovered resources like the Grow My Cleaning Company podcast and coaching services that provided her with the support and guidance she needed to turn things around.

Changing Mindset and Finding Success

The pivotal change for Patty was shifting her mindset. Initially plagued by doubts about her age and ability to attract clients, she realized the importance of confidence and clarity in her goals. By embracing a growth mindset and seeking support from mentors like Suzanne Bandick, she gained clarity on her business objectives and strategies for success.

Empowering Transformation

Through her journey, Patty learned to confront her fears, including initiating tough conversations with clients. Despite her initial reservations, she found that honesty and vulnerability often led to positive outcomes and strengthened client relationships. By prioritizing profitability and understanding her worth as a business owner, she transformed her business model and achieved significant financial growth.

Encouragement for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Patty’s story serves as a beacon of hope for aspiring entrepreneurs facing similar challenges. Her message is clear: take action, seek support, and believe in your ability to overcome obstacles. With the right mindset and determination, anyone can turn their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
