I would like help growing my business, or at least know why it didn't work. Unbelievable low revenues with no growth.

bro....some guys may disagree with me....but....
this business is not a sales business it is a service industry.......

If you are looking at the next sales internet fad to sell your business it wont work.....

They buy YOU...they know YOU...they refer others to YOU as a person......
it is all about YOU and your brand not some sales special......

Gotta get out and know people...and do what ever it takes to work......
if you make 50$ an hour it is better than 0$.......

i HAVE HEARD IT ALL IN THIS INDUSTRY ( as follows)
i wont work for less than 200$ an hour???
i wont do a job for less than 500$
i wont do apartments?
i dont do hotels?
i dont do rentals?
i wont move foruniture or clean resturants.......?

believe it or not I actually heard a guy say this:
" I only clean CLEAN CARPET"
in other words he would only clean upscale houses!!!

most all these guys have gone out of business....

bro if you fall into any of these categories...gotta change your mindset...
or go into another career
" I only clean CLEAN CARPET" I think that was me I was making fun of the guys that only do up scale high end cleaning hahahahaha.

I am located in Canoga Park, California. There are probably several hundred thousand in my area.
You live 5 miles from me. If you want and I'd be more then willing to sit down with you and try and help. I'm free most all of today, I'm just washing some rugs at my house. Message me or text me at 424-477-2074. You live in a great area. You should have more work then you can do. If you're good and know your stuff I can even refer work to you.

Thread developed to a 3rd page, so is time for some conclusion. If Johnny makes difference in man's life, we should be informed and truly congratulate both.
I believe , only minor tweaking is required, just a little bit in each area, to make business whole. Don't we have to make adjustments as we go? Always....
Go Johnny, go...

I would love to know if he reached out to you or if the "competitor" did not allow him to

I've often wondered how much better business would be if competition was more collegiate instead of cutthroat
I partner with several carpet cleaners in my area. I don't understand why some are so hesitant to share or work together. Yes, each one of the people I work with are competitors, but they refer work to me and I to them. It helps when I have a large job and need more trucks or if they have a large job and need an extra truck.
