What do you think about starting a house cleaning business?

There’s something all-American about entrepreneurs who start from scratch. Cleaning — a person and some rags and soap — is the quintessential start-up business that doesn’t require much capital.

That’s not to say it’s easy.

  • You must deal with a range of clients and their particular quirks.
  • You have to pay attention to more-efficient cleaning techniques, or your profits will go down the drain with the shower cleaner.
  • Once you hire employees, you must have the fortitude to deal with ceaseless turnover.

Give it a go, and let me know how you make out.
