The business keeps me busy. If you don't offer more than just carpet cleaning then expand into upholstery, tile, area rugs, and other services you can provide while in the home.

I can one up that...In the early eighties my brother and self used to make regular fishing trips to Baja for Tuna.Returning we had over 300 lbs of fish frozen SOLID in coolers..When asked about drugs my smart azz said yeah we got a few Kilos of Coke in with the Fish. That fuker sent us to secondary and made us take every last filet out of the coolers knowing we had no drugs. Dude was Beyond Pissed! BTW Took over 8 hrs to defrost and show the Prick each filet....

My cleaning company is to difficult to make it grow a lot more, after 25 years.
So now I sell also homes, I opened 2 years ago a real estate mini company with only one employee, we have sold 4 homes and rented 3 more. I like this business also because of the very low investment to start.

Buddy of mine was driving rather fast. He got stopped. The cop asked him if he knew why he was stopped. My buddy answered, "Well, I just thought you smelled these doughnuts in the back seat." (He worked for Krispy Kreme.)

The cop snarled at him and said, "Just get out of here!" and handed the driver's license back. My buddy said the cop looked like he was rather ticked! and figured the cop let him go rather than shoot him. LOL

Do most of you guys open other businesses or do you further grow the carpet cleaning company ?
Delicatessen for 5 years, tough business, perishables, hours, hard to find steady workers. Baked 500 potato pancakes overnight for catering . Done with it. On the other hand got bunch of regulars for CC. Still have'em.

It's the only thing I've done for 22 years.
I work m-f...
Takes all my time.
Between cleaning and the errands that surround my business, sometimes it seems like there's not enough hours in the day for ONE business...

Posting on TMF is NOT a Business if it were we both would have Robs Money!
