Trying to show my son the ropes of carpet cleaning and what is all involved with cleaning up urine, odors and more. He just turned 16 recently, id still like for him to learn other trades to gain experience of how it is to work for other owners vs our own.

I'm glad you stopped cussing at your Dad. There might not have been a TMF if you kept doing that. :) I was never dumb enough to cuss my Dad. I don't know what he would've done, but I know I wouldn't have liked it. My Dad could put the fear of Dad in you with just a look.:mad:

If you are ever in Ohio,
be more than happy to have him go out on one of the trucks.
We do 90% Air Duct and Dryer vents with carpet and furniture peppered in.
We treat our customers much like you all as is evident in our reviews.
I actually have a few younger guys in my company. One is just 18, just graduated this spring. He has been with me 3 months now and is kicking butt and taking names.
Oh I would pay him our standard 14 hr starting rate


Anyways, just thought I would put it out there.

Yup, my daughter dropped her new ipod in the toilet at Church. She bought it with her own money.
I told her she can come work with me and earn enough to replace it.
Valuable life lessons.
Make a mistake, own it and fix it.

My dad died when I was 17. But I appreciate that from 13 yrs old and on he took me to work mowing lawns every day after school. Learned to work when I was in 8th grade, thankful to this day.

We’re gonna have a booth there. I’ll talk to Tre and let’s definitely catch up. Be great to meet you and see your operation.

I took my son out a couple times. Showed him how to run a business too. He made mid six figures the last two years and just bought a house two weeks ago. 22 years old. Go figure!

this is one of his cars.
