Tulsa professional window cleaning
Today we are going to be talking about employees and why they suck. If you don’t have employees in your Tulsa professional window cleaning business, lucky you. You don’t have to deal with this. If you think you’re going to hire employees, then get it figured out because employees do indeed suck. How many other window cleaners out there who would disagree. Some window cleaners think employees are the best thing since sliced bread. I think employees are awesome. Others would agree to disagree because it’s not quite what they’ve experienced in their own window cleaning business.
The problem with employees in your tulsa professional window cleaning business.
The fundamental problem with having employees is that they will never care about your window washing business like you do. For you, this business means everything to you. You poured your heart into this. In order to start your Tulsa professional window cleaning business, it required your all. Blood Sweat and Tears. It’s just a fact that employees don’t have as much on the line as you do. To them, it’s just a job. To you, it’s almost a child. It’s important to get past this notion. What I just said was true, but you just have to accept it as fact and move on. You will never find that perfect employee that’s basically a clone of you. As you continue to grow your business, you will realize how important employees actually are. Let’s call it a necessary evil. You just simply won’t get to the next level without employees.
No right or wrong way to run your business.
Bear in mind that there’s no right or wrong way to grow your Tulsa professional window cleaning business. You can hire employees if you’d like, or don’t. It’s obviously completely up to you. Whatever you decide is going to be best for you. However, if your goal is to grow the business, employees are the way to go. If it’s always you cleaning the windows answering the phones your business will never grow. Hiring employees definitely has its negatives. It’s a whole lot more stressful. Life is a lot more stress-free when you are the only person you have to worry about. For all you window cleaners out there who are rocking the whole Father and Son team, enjoy it. Life is bliss right now. There’s not a whole lot of stress and you’re able to pay the bills.
Taking your window washing business to the next level.
Keep in mind though, that you’re Tulsa professional window cleaning business will never get to that next level. It’ll never be that large and glorious company you first envisioned it to be when you started the business. Again, I must stress that whatever you decide to do, it’s okay. This decision won’t make or break you. It all depends on what your idea of success is. How do you define success? It could very well be that your idea of success is just to own your job. Maybe you have always lived in fear of getting fired while working for someone else. Congratulations! You no longer have to live with that fear. You would have to royally screw up to lose your job as window cleaner.
Success is up to you as the owner of a tulsa professional window cleaning business
However, if your idea of success is making money without physically doing work, you might need to hire. First of all, let’s assume that you have decided to hire your first employees. Initially, there are a couple of things you need to realize when you first hire. You need to realize that it is your responsibility to train them exactly how you want them to be. Furthermore, you need to realize that they need to be motivated with rewards and perks. These incentives will encourage them to tow the line for the long run. It’s really cool if you can find an employee’s with previous cleaning experience. This will decrease the amount of time needed to integrate them into your Tulsa professional window cleaning business.
Looking for the right employees.
By and large though, I have found that most employers would rather hire window cleaning employees with no previous experience or skills. That way, they are like a ball of Play-Doh that can be molded and shaped to your desire. It’s important I hire personality and character rather than skills. If you hire someone with previous window cleaning experience they are like Play-Doh that has already been shaped and formed by another business.
