I know a lot of you are entrepreneurs so I just wanted to get an opinion/advice here. My husband and I have had a housecleaning business for a year now, and it's done very well. We do all the cleaning ourselves and are pretty booked most of the time. In fact, we no longer take one-time jobs because all of our clients are regulars and we just don't have time anymore. We have 3 kids that we bring with us but ideally would like to be at home with them. So, we are confused about how to go from a mom&pop operation to being the boss with employees. If anybody has done this please share what you know. Also, we've also discussed the possibility of selling the business. Would it be worth anything the way it is? We have a license, but other than that our business consists of our clientelle and our cleaning supplies. Plus we've only been around for a year. So I have no idea what value the business has and whether anyone would buy it, since we started it with almost no overhead, and it was so easy to do. Wouldn't someone rather do it the way we did rather than purchase ours? I don't know. If we could sell the business I wonder if it would be enough to invest in an espresso cart. There isn't one in this town and I've asked around and it seems it would do well here. Can't imagine why no one has tried it and we'd like to jump on the opportunity, but don't have $$ for it as things stand. Anyone have experience with this type of business and what would be the drawbacks I'm not seeing? Thanks in advance!
