Hello all and good evening from Michigan!
My name is Nick and I’m working towards being self-employed and then a business owner for Nick’s Residential Services.
I worked at a high end country club between 19 - 24 years. During the winter months, probably around 23 years, I started selling and hanging Christmas Lights for some of the wealthier folks. I still do that in the winter and have about 20 some clients now. I also was able to secure some more business from those clients through window washing. I do all this and still work my salary job and it’s a pretty cozy paycheck. But I’m sick of the corporate world. At 26 years old I’m looking at bigger goals.
That’s a little background but what my message to the community is; what has been successful for your business as far as scaling it? When I have time I go door to door. What sort of marketing do you do? I currently don’t have a website. How do you manage customer feedback? I develop a relationship with my customers, we often text and I ask them what they think of my work - it’s always positive.
Those are just some things off the top of my head. Anything helps. God Bless!
