Episode 790 – Why You Aren’t Actually in the Cleaning Business
Being Honest With Yourself
You're In The Business of Bringing Joy to People, Not Perfection
Is the Solution to Switch to Commercial?
In Amy’s case, she’s feeling like maybe the best thing to do rather than letting her clients down by sending in other cleaners than herself would be to switch niches altogether and go to commercial cleaning. And this is a temptation for so many of us, but the truth is that if she takes herself out of cleaning, the worst thing that can happen is a few clients decide they don’t want to use her anymore. It’s easy to catastrophize that it’ll be dramatic and hard, but in reality, it will probably be uncomfortable during the few minutes you have that conversion, they will make the decision if they want to stay or go with someone else, and that will be the end of it. When we take ourselves all the way to the worst-case scenario, we can get a lot more leverage on what we are really so afraid of and make peace with it.
Final Takeaway: Be honest with yourself about who you are, what kind of business you’re building, and what you are willing to do to get there.
