Hey guys I come to you with a serious situation that I need some guidance on. I am 44 yoa, married with 4 kids and have my father living with us due to his illness,, so I have a lot of people depending on me. I have been a Police Officer for 14 years and been doing carpet cleaning part time; or as my wife says, as a hobby. I have been out of work for the past 7 months due to a back injury (Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease ) and have been told by my back specialist to find a new career because it will not be safe for me to return to law enforcement. I am getting a second opinion on November 21 but I feel it will be the same out come. My question to you guys is how should I proceed with my carpet cleaning business? I may have $25k to get things started but I'm looking for a plan of attack to start a successful business. I had my website professionally done and going to start on SEO with the company that did the site. I have 5000 post cards printed up by Ryan Kettering that I am waiting to send out when I can. My van is wrapped and I am currently using a Mytee ltd3 with a booster. (hoping to get a truck mount one day) I know I need to have a marketing system in place that continues like clock work every month to get new customers so do you guys have any ideas of how I should structure my marketing plan? Thanks!!
