Meet Suze & Ev


My biggest thrill is in coaching, supporting, and teaching others how to recapture their lives and make their dreams come true. In addition to the 4 Cleaning Methods manuals for start-cleaning-business.com, I have written hundreds of how-tos and articles for publication in print and online media. Back in B.E. (Before Evan) I taught college English and EFL, and wrote and developed a curriculum for an online language school. I met Evan after earning my masters degree from CSUN and moving to the Rockies. Together we operated a cleaning business and set out to teach others how to blaze their own paths and become self-employed.



Evan excels at systems-design and entrepreneurialism. He owned and operated a commercial and residential cleaning service from 1996 to 2006. Meantime, he and I launched start-cleaning-business.com in 2003. We continued cleaning homes and offices until start-cleaning-business.com developed into a full-time business in 2006. We still operate a part Time cleaning service, Asheville Custom Clean. 


Ev and I are committed to teaching you the skills to start and operate a successful, independent, cleaning-service business. Our business system is a positive blend of 3 ingredients: My professional training as a teacher/coach and writer, Ev's technical and systems-design expertise, and our combined entrepreneurial experience in running a professional cleaning service.


Our address and phone number are published in the CleanZine. Please consider signing up. We'd love to chat with you in person!
