#99 – Busy in your Cleaning Business? Doesn’t Mean You’re Making Progress

Cleaning business owners are BUSY! Every day you are swamped with a never-ending to-do list. And then, unexpected things come up that interfere with your ability to get things done. But many of you are not making progress in your cleaning business.

Sometimes it reminds me of the rocking horse I had as a kid growing up. I was creating all kinds of motion back and forth, but I wasn’t getting anywhere or making any progress forward. And sometimes it feels like that in business. But here’s the thing. A lot of the time you might actually feel like you were very productive because you were busy going from one project to the next all day long.

Watch the video to find how to turn this cycle around.

  1. Great message. Reminds me of a great piece of advice I got years ago from a management guru. “There is no use doing well that which you should not be doing at all”. This has been a guide for me for many years.

    • Thanks Dick, and what a great piece of advice. I have to remind myself of that often. There are things I can do well but I know I shouldn’t be doing. That’s where documenting your process and then teaching it to your employees comes into play.
