Legitimate work-from-home opportunities
Want to work from home? Ever thought about starting a business? Unless you ARE the boss, there’s a very slim change you’ll ever get to be the boss. You probably work really hard, for someone else. Have you ever considered putting you skills, your passion and your drive into your own business?
There are more than 28 million small businesses in the United States. According to the Small Business Administration that makes up a whopping 99.7 percent of all U.S. businesses! When you consider some of the most popular reasons to start a business, including having a unique business idea, designing a career that has the flexibility to grow with you and your schedule, working toward financial independence, and investing in yourself — it’s no wonder that small businesses are everywhere.
Not every small business is positioned for success. In fact, only about two-thirds of businesses with employees survive at least two years, and about half survive five years. So you may be in for a real challenge when you decide to ditch your day job and become a business owner. The stage is often set in the beginning, so making sure you follow all of the necessary steps when starting your business can set the foundation for success.
Owning a business is not for the weak in spirit. You need a strong mind and heart to face the day-in and day-out work. In the early days of the dream, it’s easy to be so excited and enamored with the idea of “your” business that you fail to grind out a proper business model. It’s been said that entrepreneurs are the only people who will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week.
There are a lot of businesses that allow you to work from home.
Starting a business is probably the key to working from home, or from phone in a lot of cases. With the abilities of smart phones, you can practically run some business from anywhere you get a cell phone signal. There are home based business that are relatively inexpensive nor require a lot of skill to start up. A lawn care/maintenance business, a painting or pressure washing business, a cleaning business, etc.
But in our opinion, there aren’t very many home based business that have as much profit as a carpet, rug, upholstery and hardwood floor cleaning business. The investment is comparatively very low as well as the maintenance and ongoing costs associated with a carpet and hardwood floor cleaning business.
A Carpet Cleaning Business has one of the highest rates of return on investment of any business. The cost of cleaning supplies are typically less than 5% of the job, which means that you can expect to generate a 95% (or higher) gross profit margin.
With the new low moisture cleaning systems and residue-free-Eco-friendly cleaners, a carpet cleaning business is now relatively inexpensive to launch. You no longer have to buy big vans and install expensive truck-mount cleaning machinery. The new high efficiency carpet cleaning machines can now be transported in a Minivan, SUV, or even a car.
We hope this information has given you a glimpse into what it takes to start a profitable carpet cleaning business. Of course there’s much more you’ll want to know before you actually start your business.
