Hello! It's so great to have you on the blog! I want start by asking you to introduce yourself, what sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?
To be honest, I spend a lot of my leisure time working on the not-so-fun aspects of being self-employed. Making sure my schedule is correct, planning numbers, and lots of advertising. I also spend most of my time with my children. I am a single mom of three small children and one dog. :-) we love to go hiking, exploring new trails, and hanging out at the parks. We go to church Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. My kids are also in ballet and karate so we do a lot of running around.
So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located?
I clean houses. :-) I love my job. I visit the same clients on a regular basis and some I've clean for quite a long time so I know them very
well. I know the things they like, the things they dislike, how they like things done, and most importantly how I can go above and beyond for them. My job is to make it easier for parents to spend time with their
children, hard workers to focus on their work, the elderly to have clean homes without the hard work, and dog owners enjoy being home without worrying about dog hair.
Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?
There are two reasons why I chose this career path. The number one reason I chose to do what I do is my children. I have to be able to drop them off at school in the morning and pick them up after school, take them to all their extracurricular activities, be there for them when they're sick or when they need me to participate in school things. Everything I do, I do for my children. The second reason why I chose this work is to bless others. I want to make people's lives easier, do special things for them, and bless them with the valued time with their family that they otherwise miss out on taking care of things around the house. I am not perfect, I make mistakes, I forget things, but I try my absolute best and almost every time I leave a job, I'm very proud of my work. (Although, I always wish I could do more.)
Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?
I don't think I technically have a mission statement (yet) but my goal is to enable people to focus more on the important things in life rather than putting work into the house and doing housework and chores and the never-ending stuff around the house. In this day and age, we know it's more important to spend time with family. However, everyone wants their house to look presentable for one company might come over. It's difficult to accomplish both of those successfully. It's difficult to balance those things.
Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community?
At this time, I donate 10% of profit to local churches or charitable organizations. I would love to have events that would help raise money for people who really need help or even for dogs. But hosting huge events like this and making them successful takes more than just one person. So that will be in the near future.
