The group was put together from years of gleaning dudes content.

First and foremost....Prospective members had to have a history of being light-hearted.
Dudes who were almost impossible to take offense to what was said or shared.

Secondly,....we wanted dudes who were experienced enough to share insight on whatever might be their specialty.
Didn't matter if they were window cleaners or huge restoration specialists..... Just guys who were smart and willing to share their experiences CANDIDLY.....

The other key factor was that we didn't want guys too close to each other geographically as that would limit how candid they were with quality intel.

we also added a few newbies who could benefit from what was shared there. Unfortunately , every upstart dude we added flamed out besides one.....and that dude continues to prosper from what he's gathered.

including myself , there's only 31 members but it was at almost 60 a couple years ago.

60 was way too ambitious and now the members are locked in.

It's been an accumulative voting process getting a new invite there for a couple years now cuz of some poor choices.

Nobody else is getting in but I would STRONGLY recommend other cleaners who want an extra edge , form a similar group of guys.

The format of the group is what's key.
it's important to pick a few quality guys whohave their sh#t together and are willing to help each other get ahead with what really works.......

SEO
Cleaning strategy
Advertising strategy
Restoration
Expansion
Even stock trading.

Whatever you want to feature to gain intel..... The sky is the limit.

Facebook "secret groups" not "private".....

Secret is different as it's impossible for anyone who's not a member to see content or even know who's there or IF it's there.

Take this advice or don't..... The only dog I've ever had in this fight was the truth.

I've always enjoyed making people laugh ......and helping them......but never cared if it offended others in the process.

The truth can be the sharpest kind of blade to wield but it never harms those that respect the weapon.

We love you Mike even if you are a muscle head lol. Thanks for all your contributions here, good and bad. That goes for everyone. I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Here’s some business humor for you...

Work just started picking up again we have ben letting clients know ahead of time to keep distance (staying other areas of home not being cleaned) or preferably not be home during the cleaning during the actual cleaning. Personally i hate wearing the masks and agree labor intensive job and hot days (CA) wearing the mask is torture. And makes people look like tamed dogs (No offence) i dont believe wearing a mask helps stop the spread but i do wear one when mandatory (gas, groceries, etc) upon request. Or if elderly or children are present

Mike is classic sociopath, you only need to read the posts on this page of this thread to reveal that. Don't need business advice from that guy... thanks, but no thanks.

Yeah, he wants to give business advice yet he hasn't progressed past 1 truck in how many years in the biz? He sprays Grease Eraser on Wool Carpets?

I'm not one for knocking a guy down, but at what point do you draw the line. It's not even that he does some fudgeed up things to peoples floors, he isn't willing to listen to others who know more about it than himself and change his ways.

Two weeks ago, a good friend of mine died. He had stage four kidney cancer, so his death was not unexpected - however, it was much faster than anticipated.

Then last week, my neighbor of almost fifteen years died. A good man, a 'gentle giant' who taught Tae Kwon Do and had the greatest heart and the sweetest personality.

Neither death was directly attributed to Covid-19. However, both deaths were decidedly faster due to them fighting the virus concurrently with other issues.

If you don't personally believe masks work, fine. But please, for the love of all that's holy, wear one for the sake of others. It might not protect you, but it may prevent the infection of someone else.

I want to say Im not necessarily against masks however next week my guys are starting our college turn my greatest concern is my guys being masked and gloved up (6 of our properties requiring it) and trying to run up and down 4 flights of stairs repeatedly and accomplishing the amount of work they have to accomplish. Having their face covered in 100+degree weather and the oxygen deprivation mask cause im wondering if and how many of my guys are gonna have serious issues

Have em wear respirators you can breathe through
Rather than masks you can’t

They all have the masks that have valves in them their easier to breath with than respirators they still hate them

Yep hate em too
Always felt choked
I have the 3M 7500 series
Best I have found and doable working hard in 110+
The cool flow (hiflow) gimmick actually works
Funnily enough I turned the “y cradle” strap that goes around the back of your head upside down and it worked/fit better too...
