Today we’d like to introduce you to Ricardo Regalado.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Ricardo. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Well let’s see, the story begins with my cousin pushing my then girlfriend (Marley) and now wife to purchase his cleaning business franchise. He literally brought this up every family gathering for over 2 years, it finally worked, and we gave in and decided to both quit our full-time jobs to enter the crazy world of Entrepreneurship and boy am I happy we decided to make that decision. She was a full time Mac makeup artist and I was a full time Mortgage Banker. No experience in A. running a business and B. the cleaning industry. We started the company with us two, my cousin Tony, father and aunt. We took on his existing business which was about 25 accounts. Not only was the takeover a crash course in the cleaning business, but a crash course in running a business, not to mention the fact that we had to drive 1 hour to our territory area and back 1 hour every day for about 18 months.
