I never thought that when I lost my job in April of this year that I would be struggling looking for work. Every time I lost a job I was able to find another job right away.

A good friend of mine, is just recently divorced, works 40+ hours a week for one company and owns his own company. He is also a fulltime father of a 8 year old.

He asked me to watch his daughter here and there which I didn't mind one bit. But, I started to realize that he could use some help around the house. I cleaned his kitchen one day just to try to tidy up the house a little bit. He came home and was in awww. I offered to clean his house for some extra money, and he agreed.

A few months later, I became bored and I was to where I was only needing to clean his house a couple days a week. I stopped babysitting for him, and I needed something to do.

So I came on this site figuring what the heck I'll give it a try. Here a little over a month, and I've gained three more houses. I'm currently having to seak friends to assist me with cleaning houses. One customer I had no idea that when I showed up at her home what to expect. She was in process of selling her house and needed someone to go in and clean it for her really good. The price tag on that house blew my mind. Over $1.5 million.
