Mistakes Cleaning Companies Often Make

 

Hypothetically speaking, you have made up your mind to start a cleaning business. You are fired up and ready to go; with the right positivity and mindset, you will do a great job. So you go ahead and register the business, get your insurance plans, advertise, and all. You have a great idea of how to make the business a success from the start. Then, suddenly, things are not going that great anymore. Have you stopped to consider that there may be some things you are not getting right in your business? Knowing these things and trying to find a way around it might be what you need to save yourself some time, money, and even your business reputation. You do not need to do trial and error in this business of cleaning, or things may even get worse along the line.

 

Without further ado, let us jump straight into how one can run a cleaning business, discussing some of those pitfalls that some people do not know and others seem to neglect.

 

Not coming up with a marketing and business plan: Remember how we discussed that you might be fired up and ready to go? Well, making a cleaning business profitable will require more than a hardworking owner, the ability to deep clean, and a good attitude to work. A saying goes, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." This phrase has stood the test of time as it is true. Start with a mission statement to help guide you and clarify the purpose of your business. Then, proceed to draft out a good business plan.

 

This plan should contain a total review of your business, operation plans, products and services, market analysis, and strategies for marketing and sales.

 

Not building a professional website: The world has gone digital, and it is only wise that we all go with it. Having a professional website has become a key component of any successful business. With a website, you are always at work. It can be made to provide valuable information to clients and customers, add a bit of authority and professionalism, and even help you capture leads.

 

Some of the details of the website would be contact forms, information about the business, any special deals and regular sale prices, and also a blog. With optimized blog posts, your website can rank higher in searches, strengthening your online presence and giving you an edge over your competition. Also, prompt, courteous, and regular interaction with those that contact you online is important to create a good first impression for you and your business.

 

Not charging the right prices: This is one of the commonest mistakes most cleaning businesses make, and it is a big factor that should be considered. You are in the business to make a profit, right? So why undercharge for your professional cleaning services? It is understandable when you undercharge at the beginning in a bid to build your clientele list, but if you continue going that way, it could cut your profits considerably, and this would not mean well for your business.

 

Part of the business plan would be to take a minute and come up with prices for all your services. A careful thought process of pricing is much better than just pulling random figures from your head or trying to undercharge just to beat the competition. Instead of lowering prices to beat them, improve on your quality. You stand a better chance that way.

 

Not diversifying services rendered: Well, the cleaning business is becoming more competitive by the second. This means you need to stay ahead of the competition. One way to do that would be to diversify the services you render. Some cleaning businesses choose to stick with maintenance and deep cleaning regularly. However, that may be the difference between profit and loss. Offer a wider range of services to customers, and you will be able to meet increasing demand. Services to be rendered are numerous, but take it slow to avoid being 'Jack of all trades.'

 

In the end, knowing how to run a business is not as easy as it seems. However, when you know your problems, they are already half-solved. To know the problems associated with cleaning services, follow the solutions listed above, and you are good to go.

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 @Louise Lennox

 

When I pull up to Tara’s home, I’m both displeased and impressed. On one hand, It’s a big beautiful white farmhouse with a wraparound porch. It looks timeless and unique. Much like Tara herself. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn she picked this home for herself. But it’s very far off the road and isolated on about twenty acres of farmland. A single mother and her kids shouldn’t be out here all by themselves. And tonight, she’s solo. If she caught me checking on her, there’s no way I could play it cool like I was in the neighborhood.

 

There is no neighborhood.

 

By the time I gradually drive up her private gravel road, I’m soaked to the core. As I get closer, I can barely make out anything in front of me, but I see her slight frame sitting on the steps with her head in her hands. She’s sitting on a porch in the eye of an oncoming storm. My bike has a loud purr, but she doesn’t even look up.

 

Her environmental awareness is shit. We’ll have to work on that.

 

I turn off the engine and hit the kickstand. Taking my helmet off, I approach. She’s shuddering…crying.

 

Only when I call her name does she look up.

 

“Tara, what’s wrong?” I force myself to calm down; I can’t spook her.

 

When she looks at me and I’m not prepared for what I see. I expected shock and even some anger. I thought she might wonder how the hell I got to her home. I thought she’d accuse me of stalking her and order me away. Instead, she looks wrecked. Her eyes are weak from crying. Her beautiful skin is red, raw from her tears. And her lips are trembling. The entire scene is a knife straight to my heart.

 

“What happened,” I growl, losing tolerance for this entire scene.

 

She sniffles. “Jason… he… he…” That’s as far as she gets before her body crumbles into itself, tormented with fresh tears. I get out of the rain and join her on the porch. Sitting next to her, I pull her into my arms. She crawls into my lap and sobs on my chest for a good five minutes. I stroke her hair and soothe her with firm circles to her back, placing soft kisses in her wet hair.

 

“Shh Angel. It’s going to be alright. No one is going to hurt you. But you’ve got to tell me what happened. Did Jason hurt you? Can we go inside and talk about it?”

 

She lifts and looks at me with a defeated gaze. “

 

No. That’s just it. I can’t get inside. Jason had the locks changed while I was at work tonight. I can’t even get into my house!”

 

The tree branches are swaying, and the wind grows fierce. We have to get out of here soon.

 

“Angel, listen to me. You can tell me all the details later, and I promise I will help you get back into your house. But this storm is picking up and no locksmith will come by in this weather tonight. Is there anywhere I can take you? You need shelter. What about your mother’s? or Symone’s?”

 

She grabs on to my leather cut with a frantic look. “No! Please. It’s too embarrassing. My mother has enough to deal with, she doesn’t need to know I’m homeless too. At least not tonight. And I don’t want the kids to find out. Symone and Rhue have done so much for me already. I just can’t ask them for another thing.”

 

Her pride is admirable, but silly given the circumstances.

 

“Then come home with me.” I say it on impulse, but I’m certain it’s what I want.

“What?! No, I can’t impose. That wouldn’t be proper.”

 

I chuckle. “Angel, if we don’t get inside soon, this storm will scatter our proper bodies across the marsh. It is going to be a level two within the hour. I have a four-bedroom home on Kiawah. You will have your own room and bed, and you can take tonight to think through your options and rest. I promise you my intentions are honorable.”

 

She looks at me for a long moment with a partially opened mouth and I’m sure she’ll say no. But then she closes it to bite her bottom lip and my dick rouses to attention.

 

Down, boy.

 

I can’t touch her. She doesn’t need that right now. Finally, she purses her lips in a little determined grimace and nods yes. “Ok, Cameron. Thank you.”

 

I smile. “Great. But we can’t ride my bike in this weather. I was taking a chance driving it over here, but that’s a chance I was taking on myself alone. Can we take your truck?”

She stands and sticks out her hand to help me up. I laugh at the gesture. She’s sweet, but I have at least 100 pounds on her. Still, I take her hand.

 

“You can park your bike here. No one should bother with it.” She looks down at the floor of her porch and crosses her arms in front of her. “I’m so sorry Cameron, this is crazy. Are you sure it’s OK for me to impose on you like this? I can get a hotel room or something. I was so shocked, I kind of just fell and landed here.”

 

I pinch her chin and raise her eyes to mine.

 

“Tara, you are never an imposition. You are a privilege. How often does one get to host an angel?”

 

She finally smiles, and I pull her in close to whisper alongside the shell of her ear.

“I’m going to take excellent care of you, for as long as you allow it. Let’s Go.”

 

We turn toward the car and dash out into the storm, hand in hand.

 

Hopefully, by tomorrow all will be clear.

Excerpt:

 

Copyright 2021 @Louise Lennox

 

“All Rise! The honorable Judge Cameron Sinclair is presiding.”

 

I look up and every molecule in my body rises.

 

Fuck! 

 

Mr., I have an important job, is my judge? This has to be bad juju. There’s no other way to explain the coincidence. 

 

I cursed this man all the way out and then ruined his clothes. Now he’s going to decide whether my children and I get what we deserve? This can’t be good.

 

Keisha gives me a sidelong glance, but my attention is fully on the man standing behind the bench. Lately, desire is a foreign feeling. Since Jason, I largely ignore my vagina and any pleasure it may bring. But this man carries an energy that makes me want to wake my girl out of hibernation and do all the things another woman won’t do.

 

But I won’t.

 

That’s partly why I snapped on him in the coffee shop. The man is seriously fuckable. He is easily over six feet tall and the color of a cinnamon stick. His dreadlocks are pulled back into a fishtail, accented by a beard and goatee so perfect, the lines look painted on. He’s in his robes, but I can tell he is in incredible shape. His shoulders are broad, and his hands are huge-I see them from here. When he opens his mouth to speak, his deep timbre commands the room but calms my anxiety at the same time. I didn’t get those vibes at the coffee shop. There, his voice made me want to fight.

 

“I’ve reviewed the evidence presented in discovery, and I don’t know why we are here. Dr. Kent, since you have forgone council, I will be direct. You have the means to pay your child support but have refused to do so. However, in the spirit of fairness and the law this courtroom observes, I will allow you to speak and provide me with a reason I should grant this reduction in support.”

 

Jason stands and moves to the dais to speak. He’s representing himself today because he actually thinks he can-idiot. He didn’t know Keisha was in town. He looks back at his silly fiancée and winks at me before clearing his voice to speak.

 

I hate him. But God, how I used to love him. His very presence used to make me weak in the knees, and it poised me to do anything for a ray of his sunshine to fall my way. I thought the family we were building together was all I’d ever need in life. He was my first lover, the first man I ever called friend, and the person who made me feel needed the most. And I wanted to be needed. That all changed once he became Dr. Jason Kent.

 

“Your honor. This is not about my ability to pay. It is about the fairness of the judgement. Mrs. Kent has received a promotion to Vice Principal of her school. Her raise calls for a reduction in my contribution.”

 

This motherfucker.

 

The judge stares right through him before speaking.

 

“Do I look like a fool to you, Dr. Kent? Because I assure you, the only fool here is you.”

 

I snort under my breath and quickly cover my mouth. Jason holds on to the dais so tightly his knuckles bulge. He hates being talked down to. Hopefully, he knows better than to talk crazy to a judge.

 

“No, your honor, you are not a fool... and neither am I.”

 

Mr. Hot as fuck Judge crosses his arms and leans back a bit, looming over Jason. He’s making him wait. His extra theatrics are not lost upon me, and I smile to myself. The big dick energy is powerful with this one.

 

“Then don’t talk to me like one. We both know your ex-wife did not receive a promotion but is rather covering for her vice-principal during summer school. Her boost in pay is temporary. To be regarded as a bonus, not an increase in salary.”

 

Jason scoffs. “I don’t see why that matters, a raise is a raise and money is money. I am tired of Tara draining my household dry while she spends her money on whatever she wants.”

 

That’s it.

 

I won’t sit here and let him talk about me like I’m not here. Keisha tries to hold me down, but I snap to my feet and speak. “Objection your honor.”

 

Jason rolls his eyes, and Judge Sinclair looks into mine like he just realized who I am...and he’s pleased. I didn’t expect that. His eyes sparkle. What color are they...blue? How can a black man have such blue-green eyes? They are mesmerizing. I’m shaken out of my thoughts when his firm tone addresses me.

 

“Mrs. Kent, what exactly is the nature of your objection?”

 

Jason snickers. “Yeah, maybe you should leave the talking to your lawyer. Someone who knows what she is doing.”

 

“Fuck You!” The words fly from my mouth before my mind registers where we are.

 

Judge Sinclair bangs his gavel three times and points it at Jason. 

 

“You, sir, are on thin ice. One more outburst from you and I’ll hold you in contempt. Is that clear?”

 

Judge Sinclair cuts his eyes at me. A warning. Before turning back to Jason, expecting an answer.

 

Jason bites his tongue. “Yes, your honor.”

 

Judge Sexy... I mean Sinclair turns back to me. 

 

“Now Ms. Kent. You would like to address the court?”

 

I want to approach your bench.
