My biggest thrill is in coaching, supporting, and teaching others how to recapture their lives and make their dreams come true. 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.
excels at business systems-design, problem solving techniques, web programming and online marketing. He has been a entrepreneur since 1996. He owned and
operated a commercial and residential cleaning business for 10 years. Meantime, he and I launched start-cleaning-business.com
in 2004. We continued cleaning homes and offices until
start-cleaning-business.com developed into a full-time business.
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.
