when you start a cleaning business
One of the great benefits of a cleaning service is choosing where you work. You
could conceivably start a cleaning business within your very own neighborhood.
I have done this when starting in different towns over the years. I'll start with the nearest nice upscale neighborhood and work out in a radius from there. Even if you do not work in your immediate neighborhood, you can usually choose to clean houses and offices within a few miles of your home.
No more long commutes, you don't even need a vehicle if the jobs are close and you do some planning. When I started my first cleaning business I used my bike, the bus system and carried my cleaning supplies in my back pack. This is also detailed in the Suze and Ev Method.
If the long commute and traffic jams are getting down, then this may be another reason to start a cleaning business of your own.
