HELPING JANITORIAL BUSINESSES SCALE UP

July 21, 2020

Most of us do not like the idea of picking up the phone and cold-calling a prospective customer. I don't like getting calls from telemarketers and I suppose that creates some of my reluctance in making cold calls. Probably the biggest challenge in making a cold call is what to say. You...

I remember well the first time I went out to purchase my own car.  With a little money in my pocket for the first time, I wandered onto the first car lot and was confronted with a question that I had not considered – “what are you looking for”?  Two hours and a headache later, I realize...

I was recently asked a question by one of our BSC Mastermind Group members that went something like this: “My janitorial company is small but we are anxious to grow. However, I find myself in somewhat of a dilemma. Due to our size, I need to be involved in the day-to-day operations, whi...

Getting over that first big growth plateau as a janitorial company can be a big challenge. You have gotten the company off the ground, but maybe you been stranded somewhere between $300k and $700k per year in revenue and just can’t seem to get over the hump. If you’ve watched any of my...
