How’s business this month, what city & state?

Here in VB, Va it’s decent. Down due to blue governor mandates but survival-able. How about you?

Well I'm up 400% compared to last December. Down 50% compared to last month. Not hard to do when last December was only $3,000.

Lol. I don't know. I'm a little scared as a new business but I kept all of my cash inside the company for 2020 so all of our equipment except the vans/mounts are paid for. My Jan and Feb bills are paid so I've got a little time to ride out whatever storm is brewing.

Either way I get the feeling I'm going to have to pick up a side gig if I want some liquidity for 2021.

Residential is just dead for us right now. Got a steady flow of work coming in from a local hospital that is pretty much the only thing keeping us running.

In Missoula, MT.

November was excellent but December has slowed down.

November was my best month for 2020.

It snowed last night. That is never good for work in New Jersey. Most people in Jersey don't have money to waste and don't want carpets cleaned if snow is on the ground.

Almost everyone saw an influx of business over the last 3-4months.

This could likely be attributed to a huge injection into the economy with the stimulus packages.

The damage that has been done unfortunately is just now starting to materialize.

It was pretty obvious what was going on when I was getting a bunch of new customers and cleaning peoples homes who had never gotten their carpet professionally cleaned before. I was closing every job because of the uncertainty that we were facing. I also got three good flood jobs(insurance claims) the past 2 month so that always helps.

I agree with that sentiment, I wonder as well though if there was also many people who didn't get their carpets cleaned due to fear of Covid
