I have prescribed a heavy dose of business owner's mindset on this podcast. My desire is to level-up the newbies and speed up their success. Plus, I really enjoy teaching this stuff. Sometimes I teach something on the podcast and use it as a lesson to my kids or in a local networking group. Sometimes I teach in my local networking group and share it as a podcast. In this case, I taught a lesson to my daughter with my wife that I also wanted to share with you. If you are new to the show, go back a few episodes and listen to "Beginner's Business Mindset". It's a great place to start your journey as an entrepreneur. Speaking of entrepreneurs... let's do a test. Are you an entrepreneur? Entrepreneurs are always thinking. We are looking for problems for the opportunity to solve them. This leads to so many new businesses, inventions, books, etc. Some entrepreneurs are overactive problem solvers like my friend Vincent that they're always in problem solving mode, finding problems even when it doesn't exist. It's a curse and a blessing of the entrepreneur. We are ALWAYS thinking, figuring, bettering, tinkering, creating. We can't stop. We say "How Can I" to every problem, where the employee mindset will say "I can't". My wife and I were walking with our daughter and training her on these basics of entrepreneurship or growth mindset. She is 14 and is operating her first business creating and selling greeting cards in diners. She is so gifted with the cards. She also has a Why to use the profits to support her ballet dream. During the walk, we noticed that she has ideas to grow her business but she's not taking action. She was not being proactive. We explained to her that she's acting more like an employee, where she's waiting for Mom and Dad to tell her what to do next and then she'll do what we tell her. We explained that's not how entrepreneurs think or act. She understood. I shared. "Christianna, we taught you how can I over I can't." She remembered that for sure! I continued. "Here's the next lesson that goes hand-in-hand with this one. There's a difference between proactive and reactive. Here's the simplest version. In a reactive state, something happens and then you take action based on what happened. In a proactive state, you take action and then something happens based on what you did. In a proactive state, you are driving the business or the idea. If you were being proactive you'd be like a boat on the lake cutting through the undisturbed water. You are proactively cruising through. This causes a wake behind you, which disturbs the resting ducks on the water. The ducks now have a choice. They either move, fly away, or deal with the wake. You were proactive and cut A new path and the ducks were reactive and had to find comfort somewhere else. There is always someone being proactive and someone being reactive as a result of someone else being proactive. If you're proactive, you can get ahead of problems (like the wake) before they come. The ducks could have seen the wake and decided that they were going to move before the wake got there or move over. That would be proactive to them. They don't. Some people are always waiting for something to happen before they take any action. They live in a reactive state and will rarely have control of their environment. They are at the mercy of so many other people and things. They are ducks! Proactive people drive change and have so much more control and flexibility over the outcome of their life."Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website
As Millennials graduate from high school, graduate from college, or get engaged to be married, a formula on How to Set Strong Goals, should be prominent their minds.In each stage of life, we should have short term goals and long-term goals. Short term goals are goals you would like to achieve within the year and long-term goals are goals you would like to achieve in let's say 10 years.So, if we were to ask a young lady what her goals after graduation are from college, her short-term goals, would probably be either get a job and start supporting herself or enroll in a graduate program.In this episode of Transformation Fridays, I want to teach on goal setting, not just having a mediocre goal but a strong goal, how set SMART goals.I always like to use stories as an illustration so today I want to use Tom Brady's goal setting as a demonstration of how to set strong SMART goals.

This interview originally released on December 13, 2021. At the time of our interview, I did not know that we would sponsor Damon's product the T-Bag. We were simply having a conversation from one cleaning business owner to another. Damon has a great story of try, fail, and adjust. He has been in this industry for decades and found a pain point that he wanted to solve. Damon invented the T-bag to solve the problem of janitors wasting time replacing trash bags while cleaning. It's a simple invention, but so is the coffee collar and the button. These inventions remain in the creative minds of most. It takes a special type of person to take a chance. That's why I support Damon Washington so much. Before I replay this interview, I wanted to give an short update on the T-bag since last December.2022 has been a profitable year for the T-bag. The Waist 1pocket version of the product has taken off pretty well. This allows cleaners to wear the T-bag on their waist, which has application to janitors not rolling around a trash can. I am one of those janitors. Damon sent me the Waist 1pocket earlier in the year. It's a welcome addition for sure! Damon was also proud to report that he was able to get his product into Johns Hopkins University and Indiana State University. An unexpected success has been the reception of the T-bag into the landscaping community. Damon will be a vendor at the ISSA Convention in Chicago from October 10-13, 2022 if you happen to be in that area and would like to meet him. Great job Damon! Here's the replay...Check out my interview with the T-Bag Company Founder, entitled "Respectful, Reliable, Responsible with Damon Washington".

Colette is my personal accountant and she closes out a 3-part interview series we did on the Smart Cleaning Tribe. Colette gets into the nitty gritty of what a valuable accountant can do for you. First of all, she dives into business budgeting and how the business owner and accountant partner to help the business grow and plan for the unexpected. I took Colette's advice from the last episode "Hire Professionals on Day One" I hired an accountant in my second year when we had no money. I purchased insurance on day one. I found an attorney to work with in year two. However, I never had an accountant that does as much as Colette does for us. Beyond business budgeting, Colette explained what tax planning looks like. This is a huge value add your accountant can add for you. She shared some 2022 tax updates and how they may impact each of us at a high level to demonstrate how vital it is for us to have the right tax professional. Make sure to listen to Colette's checklist of what questions we should be asking our accountant when tax planning. Lastly, Colette gives us a checklist to us, the cleaners, on what we need to do on our end to help our accountant help us.Check out my interview with the CBF Founder, entitled "A Buffalo Charges the Storm with Debbie Sardone". Debbie is offering free consultations to listeners of this show through the Smart Cleaning School Resources Page at smartcleaningschool.com/resources to see if CBF could be the right solution for you.
In part two of this 3-part interview with my accountant Colette on the Smart Cleaning Tribe, she dives deeper into the role of the accountant. In one question, she explains the benefits of hiring an all-in-one bookkeeper and accountant to help the business with tax planning and prep way before tax day. In another question, Colette surprised us all. "When should we hire an accountant?" Colette said that she is a big believer in hiring insurance, tax, and legal professionals in your business on Day One. Yes, it will cost you in the beginning. But the cost of fixing bad books or hiring a legal team after the fact or not having insurance coverage and an event happens is WAY more expensive. She is an advocate therefore of hiring these 3 professionals on Day One. Colette answers an interesting question about state versus federal tax laws. Plus, I share how Colette personally bills me for services. I think it's brilliant as I can budget accounting all year at the same price. It's a win for the cleaning business owner. From her side, she has reliable recurring income. That's a big win for her. I highly recommend an accountant that bills on a monthly retainer. As mentioned in episode 1, feel free to reach out to Colette with questions or to hire her for accounting services. You can find her at CMBA Solutions.
I asked my personal accountant Colette Melott (CMA, EA) to join the Smart Cleaning Tribe for an Expert Call to help cleaning company owners understand their numbers and who to hire in their specific case. Colette starts this interview with the accounting basics. Bookkeepers helps you track transactions with your money coming in and your money coming out. In most cases, a bookkeeper does not help you apply what those numbers mean to anything. They are putting your puzzle together, but they're not telling you what the picture on the puzzle is. There are not too many certifications for bookkeepers. However a Quickbooks Pro Advisor is a great designation to find especially if your business utilizes Quickbooks. These certified bookkeepers are proficient enough to adapt your business numbers appropriately and legally to Quickbooks.Accountants puts it all together for you. Bookkeeping is a task of accounting, but they don't stop there. They take those numbers and apply meaning to them to help you make business and tax decisions. There are several designations of accounting professionals.General Accounting - This is an accountant with a Bachelor's Degree in accounting that operates UNDER a CPA or CMA licence. For example, Colette used to work in two corporate positions where the company held the certified accounting license and Colette worked under it. This is exactly how I operated as an engineer. GE held the Professional Engineer's license and I was a general engineer under this certification.Certified Public Accountant (CPA) - This designation is granted at the state level. The accountant must pass a high-level exam to obtain their CPA license. Plus, they must maintain this high-level each year. There is a high standard. At the corporate level, they are qualified to take the numbers a publicly traded company provides and certify them to the public. They are on the company's external team. However, most CPAs operate out of smaller offices and work with small private companies. Certified Management Accountant (CMA) - This is an international accounting designation. Therefore, their training must keep them familiar with domestic and international accounting standards. At the corporate level, they are qualified to be the comptroller or CFO to help the company compile the numbers to present to the public. They are on the company's internal team. The CMA must also pass a high-level initial and annual exam process to obtain and keep their license. There is a high standard.Enrolled Agent (EA) - The IRS has 3-part tax proficiency exam and certification process to enroll accountants in the IRS code. This allows them to prepare tax returns The Enrolled Agent is one of 3 designations that can legally represent you on an IRS audit. The other two designations that can do this for you are the CPA and the tax attorney.Tax Attorneys are the only ones who can practice law. They help if you need representation in tax court. This is a high level professional that you need when you're in trouble! Therefore, study this episode and hire the right professional so you never NEED this pro!That's part one of my interview with my accountant Colette. These are accounting designations I wised I knew 20 years ago. I hope that Colette helped you understand the landscape of accounting professionals. Would you like to connect with my accountant?

I was in Dallas with my son for a podcasting conference in August. It was a blast, especially hanging out with my son. We stayed at the downtown Sheraton, which afforded us the ability to walk the city a bit. I also had the opportunity to connect in person with two former guests of the Smart Cleaning School. I went to lunch with Greg Shepard from "Sail Around the World". We had a blast walking around the city and enjoying a quality Mexican meal. Greg is a friend and definitely a mentor. He stretches me big time. The day after lunch with Greg, I had a personal tour and breakfast with Debbie Sardone from "A Buffalo Charges the Storm". Debbie is highly regarded coach in the residential cleaning industry as well as a friend and mentor. Back to my son and walking Dallas. I really, really wanted to visit Dealey Plaza. As a kid, I was enamored with the movie "JFK" starring Kevin Costner. The movie makes a compelling case for a second gunman on the grassy knoll. I have seen the Zapruder film so many times, that I already felt like I've been there. I was wrong. Being there was different. Kenny and I walked into Dealey Plaza. I was in awe. He knew more about the Lincoln assassination than Kennedy, so I described it as best I could. That's when I noticed a guy with a bike helmet and bike showing the Zapruder film and explaining the details of the assassination. Kenny and I walked over to listen. We stood on Elm Street in front of the old Texas State Book Depository as he pointed to the 6th floor corner window. The window is half open with boxes arranged exactly as they were in crime scene photographs. He paused the video on his phone and pointed to the first large "X" on Elm Street. This is where JFK was struck the first time in the neck. He played the Zapruder film. We could see Kennedy grab his neck. It was too surreal. He kept the film running as JFK was struck with the kill shot. He pointed to the second "X" on Elm Street. "On November 22nd, 1963, that's where an American President was assassinated." Chilling. We thanked him for his history lesson and walked the plaza. We stood on the "X" and took a picture. We stood on the grassy knoll and took a picture. We stood where Abraham Zapruder took the movie and yep, we took a picture. It was much, much different in real life. Dealey Plaza is virtually unchanged in 59 years. History is powerful, especially when we can be there in person. There's a reason I shared this story. In the early 1960's, John F. Kennedy was beloved and respected. He was a member of the Democrat Party and generally regarded to have political views left of center. He considered himself a Liberal, yet he opposed Communism, supported the 2nd Amendment, and voted for tax cuts. Those were positions held by the Democrat Party then. Today, these same policy beliefs would be called Republican. Here's what I find interesting. If JFK were running for office right now, he would likely be a moderate Republican. This is not my opinion. You can search it online and read for yourself. That's not the point of this podcast. Here's the point. JFK didn't change. How could he. He's been dead for 59 years. What did change? Now we're asking the right question. It's called the Overton Window and I find it fascinating.Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website

In March 2002, Teresa and I joined the Quixtar business as Independent Business Owners (IBOs). It was the first business we ever owned. I was excited. I was ambitious. I had discipline. I had it all, right? Nope. I didn't have a business owner's mindset. I did not think like an entrepreneur. We started learning from Diamond IBOs. We saw the Diamond lifestyle of total freedom of time and money and we wanted it for our family. We heard this from our mentors, from CDs they gave us, and from Diamonds on stage. "You will be in 5 years based on the books you read and the people you associate." This was the starting point of our business owner's mindset. We were learning the fundamental truth that humans highly influence other humans. We are all creative miracles with immeasurable possibility. We all have the same brain and nervous system which the late, great Zig Ziglar said surpassed the world's best supercomputer of his era. As I learned this stuff, I asked the question. Why are the poor, poor and the rich, rich? There are many factors, so please don't dig too deep into this. I starting reading success stories from the poorest of the poor ascending through the poverty to become wealthy and influencing millions. I also heard of trust fund kids with all the money in the world descending into drug addiction and losing it all. That quote became truth to me. "You will be in 5 years based on the books you read and the people you associate." As I read those stories of success, they all had this in common. Other successful people helped them change the way they thought so that they could get where they got. Does this make sense? I was learning that I had an incredible brain and potential. But I wasn't tapping into it. I needed to start associating with different people that thought differently. I needed to turn off Sportscenter and the news and start watching successful people that I admired. I needed to put down magazines and Dean Koontz books and read wealth mentality books. I'm not the same person I used to be. I've been reading books to grow my mind and success for over 20 years. I've been associating with mentors that stretch me in every area of my life. I'm still becoming the person that I want to be in 5 years. In today's language, I needed to find mentors on podcasts, social media, YouTube, and attend conferences. That's what this podcast episode is all about. If you are brand new to the cleaning industry, I hope you choose to follow this show and absorb the mindset so you can grow!

This conversation with Crystal Hamm was wide-ranging in topics, but mainly focused on her past. In the present, Crystal runs a $3 million dollar residential cleaning company. Her team loves her and she loves them. She has build a company in the Raleigh Area that serves people greatly called the Go 2 Girls. I can't endorse this company enough if you live in Wake County, North Carolina.Check out this interview with Crystal and listen to her story. She comes from rural America, climbing trees, and sliding into 3rd base for softball. She has come so far from her beginnings as the daughter of a coal miner to an employer of over 60 team members. She has a truly remarkable story. Here are a few quotes that I especially loved..."That's my mentality. We never stop learning.""My self worth was tied to that growth. So I felt that once I hit a million dollars then this small town girl was going to be good enough."
I am a listener to the Tim Ferriss Podcast and have been for years. I don't relate with every episode, but some of them really move me to action and inspire me. Here are some examples. Kelly Slater taught me to be humble. Hugh Jackman inspired me to utilize the rowing machine in my workouts! Chris Bosh showed me that my problems aren't that big! In this episode, Elizabeth Gilbert taught me the Art of the Simple No. So many of us struggle with the two-letter word no. It's hard to say. We feel that we need to explain ourselves whenever we decide to use it. Statistically, 32% of all people tested with the DISC Profile are the S-Type for Steadiness. An S-Type person is very loyal, a great listener, easy to talk to, even keel, reliable, and generally tends to be a people-pleaser. Therefore, 1/3 of us out there already have a difficult time saying no. I once heard this and it floored me. "No is a complete sentence." This is exactly what Elizabeth Gilbert is talking about in this clip from the Tim Ferriss Show. The full show is linked in the show notes. I highly recommend the video version available on YouTube so you can see Elizabeth's body posture and gestures as she explains the Simple No. Here's my question. How can you implement this strategy into your life? Would it make your relationships strained? Would it give you more time as you'd be saying no more often? I pondered these questions myself and have been more intentional to place a higher value on my time. I hope you do too. Check out my interview with the CBF Founder, entitled "A Buffalo Charges the Storm with Debbie Sardone". Debbie is offering free consultations to listeners of this show through the Smart Cleaning School Resources Page at smartcleaningschool.com/resources to see if CBF could be the right solution for you.

This talk was originally given for Coach Josh. He runs a Facebook group called TwelveTwo, which exists to empower entrepreneurs to pursue excellence in their finances and relationships. I had been working on this exercise after attending the Growth Now Summit Live in Lititz, PA with Justin Schenck. During this conference, my friend and Movement Influencer Andre Young taught me a simple exercise to help board rooms narrow down their company values to core values. What does that mean? Andre runs "You Evolving Now" and explained that leadership teams can think of many words to explain what the organization believes in. However, this exercise helped the teams he has coached to force their long list of values down to the vital few that were truly core. They are the ones that capture the essence of WHY the company exists, HOW they operate, and WHAT they do. I just pulled in a little Golden Circle by Simon Sinek too. Anyway, I borrowed this exercise from Andre along with Simon's mindset and adapted it to creating better habits. I have been a student of habit-building for years. There are 4 books that are all foundational and well-worth the read. The Slight Edge by Jeff OlsonThe Compound Effect by Darren HardyAtomic Habits by James ClearThe Power of Habit by Charles DuhiggEach of these books takes a different angle, but have a common message. You can change your habits. And when you change your habits, you'll change your life. The Slight Edge and the Compound Effect teach us that small incremental changes made daily and consistently add up to mind-blowing changes down the road. Atomic Habits teaches that some habits inspire you to be stronger in others. They are called Keystone Habits. The Power of Habit was actually the first audio book I ever listened to on Audible. This book is for the ones who would like to understand the psychology and anatomy of a habit and how to create new ones. It's fascinating.Once I built this workshop, I tested it on me, my wife, my friend John Schuchman on the plane to Podfest, the Smart Cleaning Tribe, and my Total Life Freedom Mastermind. I learned from each and found something out. People were choosing their health as the #1 thing they wanted to change in their life at a high rate. Coach Josh helped me add a major component to this talk on the grip FEAR has on us. Once we realize that we'll never be perfect and the only way to overcome fear is with action, we'll begin making the changes in our lives needed to become all that we desire to become. I recorded this talk for TwelveTwo and later adapted it to fit for the 2022 Maid Service Success Summit. Now, it's time for class! I want each and every one of you to complete this exercise. Please email me at ken@smartcleaningschool with the subject, "My #1 Change" and then share your #1. I will personally respond to each email with encouragement!

We are a family of cleaning company owners who connect every week via Zoom to brainstorm, solve problems, set goals, hold each other accountable, and support each other.
Everyone has heard of SMART Goals. They're the corporate buzzword for goal setting. The issue is, they aren't the best for goal ACHIEVEMENT. Sure, they sound good. People get really excited setting SMART goals, but then they woosh right on by and rarely are achieved. In this podcast I dig into why the SMART framework sounds good but doesn't deliver. I also teach a more effective framework to get into the meat of your goals, what actually needs to be accomplished to get you to the finish line, and how to repeatedly win.
Are you the kind of person who finds setting goals overwhelming or a pain? Do you find yourself repeatedly failing to meet the goals you set yourself? Do you find the whole SMART goal thing a bit boring? If you answer yes, to any of these questions, this episode is for you. David explains how to take the SMART way of setting goals to the next level so that you can easily identify the right goals for you and set them in a way that makes achieving them manageable. Allowing you to finally achieve them and make considerable progress. Your goals need to be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound – SMART. Making your goals exciting will keep you enthused, providing you with the energy to maintain momentum. Setting scary goals will push you to face down your fear and transform yourself. You are putting in a lot of effort, so make it worthwhile, and make your goals transformational. The world needs you to be ready to play your part. Setting the right goals will help you to be ready. . BEST MOMENTS ‘If you don't like goals, there is probably a reason why,' ‘Make sure you´ve got evidence of success.' ‘When you finish writing that goal down, it should be so exciting that the hairs on the back of your neck begin to stand up.' ‘Invest more time upfront in making sure that the goal is going to serve your purpose' ABOUT THE SHOW People with purpose make a difference. Imagine a world where more people can just get their purpose out of them, into a plan and then actually make it happen. What a world that would be - People everywhere finding meaning and harnessing that to bring inspiration and energy to each and every day, changing lives for the better. But no one ever achieved anything on their own - we all have something unique to bring and that means we all have to play our part - if we want to go far, we have to go together and lead or serve towards a vision of the world we want to see. Everyone has a story to tell, and this show is where these stories come to life. ABOUT THE HOST David Roberts is a highly regarded CEO, mentor, and investor with 30 years of experience across multiple sectors.

On today's show we are talking about building a resilient foundation for your life so that when the inevitable storms of live rock you like a hurricane you come out on top. There are always storms in life, It is the very nature of life to have peaks and valleys, there are only lulls for a time. Change is the constant that you can count on. None of us like difficult times, but it does not change the reality for us. A lot of people have been experiencing this in the last couple of years, the dreaded r0na changed the world as we know it and altered a lot of people's lives forever. Businesses were shuttered, lively hoods lost, and jobs gone. The way everyday life worked changed too. The repercussions are still rippling through the waters of life, jobs are still being lost as things get automated, more people are doing more for the same amount so companies can cut overhead. In all this turbulence and changing landscapes we need solid, resilient foundations that will not move or break no matter what we through at. In this episode we share 5 layers to build a rock solid foundation that will keep you more stable no matter what life throws your direction. We talk about SMART Goals, Perspective, Side Hustles, habits and so much more!

S.M.A.R.T. Goals Planner FREEBIE HERE by Dr. Martha Kenney, creator of Time Matters Today We are half-way through 2022, and, I have a quick question for you. Have you achieved your New Year's resolutions? My guess is that most of you would say "no," because research shows that 80% of people abandon their New Year's resolutions by the beginning of February. Why? Because although New Year's resolutions may be the closest that most people will get to planning their goals in life, resolutions are more an expression of desires rather than "true goals." Vaguely stated goals that lack relevance to your values and are not informed by the habits that you need to achieve them are not goals but wishful thinking. Therefore, it is not surprising that 80% of people abandon their resolutions by February. So, how can you make realistic and attainable goals in life? I encourage you to use the SMART goals template. SMART is an acronym that stands for specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound. Setting SMART goals allows you to know exactly where you want to go, how quickly you want to get there, and how many steps it will take to get there.” - Dr. Martha Kenney, Time Matters Today Click here https://www.timematterstoday.com/blog/achievingyourgoalsinlife for Dr. Kenney's FREE downloadable template that provides specific and detailed questions for each SMART component and a goal planner that can help you clearly define your goals in life. Understanding SMART Goals S – Specific A goal that is specific answers the 5-Ws: “who, what, where, when, and why.” M – Measurable You need criteria to determine when you have successfully achieved your SMART goal. You also should have milestones or benchmarks that can track your progress. For instance, “I want to exercise for 30 minutes daily at least 5 times per week,” is measurable compared to “I want to exercise more.” A – Achievable and [Audacious] Audacious is not part of the SMART acronym but I believe it should be. Often, we think that if a goal is achievable, it shouldn't be bold. However, a goal can be both bold and achievable. I believe that part of the purpose of making goals is to push yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and attain something that you don't already have. So, you don't have to play it safe. Be bold. However, if you don't have the resources or skills to achieve your goal, identify how you can acquire those skills and resources. Or are there mentors or colleagues or friends who can fill in the gap and provide what you are lacking in skills? R – Relevant Your goal should be important to you. Each goal should really be a component of the bigger picture of who you want to be and where you want to go either personally or professionally. And, if it is a professional goal, it should align with the bigger mission of your organization. T – Time-bound Time is finite. Therefore, we don't have endless amount of time to achieve our goals. Therefore, your goal should have an associated deadline or timeframe that motivates you to action. Now that you understand the SMART goals template, let me share with you some principles that can help you maximize the usefulness of SMART goals. Tune in as we review 7 Steps to put the SMART goals template to use and achieve your goals in life
In this video, I am going to discuss how to renew your commitment to the goals you've set for your life, career, finances and business at the beginning of the year. You'll learn how to review your goals, edit or revise your goals, set realistic SMART goals and how to achieve everything you've set out for by the time the year ends. Enjoyed this episode?

This was episode 11 of this podcast, originally published on November 14, 2019 which was a tough month for me. We had successfully built and sold an optimized solo cleaning company in Upstate New York and moved back home to Philadelphia after nearly 20 years away. I desperately wanted to have a career where I could work from home and enjoy my kids growing up. I made an assumption that I'd be able to build up our online business of courses, memberships, and the proceeds of this podcast while living off the sale revenue from our NY cleaning company. I had just returned from the Total Life Freedom Gatlinburg Retreat with a new direction. I told my mastermind and my wife that I would continue to build the online business. However, I promised them that I would get back into the trenches of solo cleaning and prove to whoever was listening to the podcast that I could do it again. I built one solo cleaning company over 15 years to $60,000 profit cleaning just 2 days per week without employees. I vowed to do it again and set SMART goals of $20,000 revenue goals for the upcoming year of 2020. I even called this goal - Vision 20/20! We all know that 2020 turned out differently, but that didn't stop us! We accomplished every goal in 2020 and shared every detail in the first 100 episodes of this podcast.This November 2019 episode was very important as it taught a vital lesson in HOW I was able to raise prices and optimize a solo cleaning business so fast. If you're thinking to yourself, 'how, Ken?' The answer is in the title.

The Solo Cleaning Elite and the ISO Model Course are the classes available to solo cleaners in the Smart Cleaning School. I am the original student and have honed the curriculum for any solo cleaner to create the profit, time, and freedom they are looking for without ever having to hire employees. I created the curriculum with our first solo cleaning business in New York as the model. We built an optimized solo cleaning company with 17 clients that created $60,000 annual profit on 2 cleaning days per week. It was awesome as I could be home with my family 5 days per week! This business sold for $80,000. Over the past 5 years, I have coached dozens of solo cleaners through my ISO Model with success. I have also built a second solo business to $70,000 profit on 2 cleaning days per week and scaled this business to almost $200k in annual revenue and a team of employees. Why do I tell you all of that? Simple. One of the classes in the ISO Model is called the 3 S's of Solo Cleaning. You can only optimize so far and every solo cleaner must make this decision at some point. Will I STAY a solo cleaner and continue to optimize to my ideal income and schedule, while turning down many prospects? Will I SELL my solo business to move on or enjoy retirement? Will I SCALE my solo business with a team of employees so we can grow to impact our community? I have done all 3 S's of solo cleaning. Therefore, I am a credible instructor for the ISO Model Course. The first stage of the Optimizer lessons is to complete an Optimizer's Workshop with me. Heather Parke had started her business in January 2021. She quickly Initialized (I), Stabilized (S), and was ready to start Optimizing (O). Heather was ready to get the green light from me. All she had to do was update her ISO Model Scorecard with me on a workshop. If her scores were high enough, she'd be in a fantastic place to start optimizing toward her freedom. She was positive that she was ready. I knew better. I knew any solo cleaner can build a company quickly and hit the financial metrics of an optimizer. I just had my doubts about the level of trust built. If you get a chance, go back and listen to the clip from my Optimizer's Workshop with Heather Parke. You'll see why she was graded at the Stabilizer Level. This helped her reformulate her goals and move on.I recently completed another Optimizer's Workshop with Dave Reeks. Dave has been featured on this podcast recently as he is the one that asked about Keys to Solo Longevity I & II. Dave was in a similar position as Heather. He is 6 months into his business in Australia and doing amazing. He has been a great ISO Model student. I am truly humbled and honored that Dave and Heather were willing to submit the strategy of their solo cleaning business to my expertise. Thank you Dave for trusting me and giving me permission to share this clip from our workshop. During this workshop, Dave inspired a new training on the Trust Factor Metric. I taught the 3 C's for building trust. They are Character, Consistency, and Cleaning. When your clients trust all 3 C's in you as their cleaner, their Trust Factor increases.If you're a solo cleaner at any level, you can enroll in the ISO Model Course or register for an Optimizer's Workshop to learn your solo business score!

Nothing can cause more stress than an IEP meeting looming in the future. But it doesn't have to be that way. Stephanie DeLussey, IEP coach and veteran special education teacher, joined me on the podcast today to share some tips and suggestions for making IEPs not only painless but more productive. Goal SettingSMART goals are a big buzzword in the education community, but what does it mean? Stephanie breaks down the acronym;Specific -Is the goal individualized and a direct skill, no generalizations?Measurable - Can the goal be tracked with data?Attainable - Is this goal realistic for the student?Relevant - Is this goal relevant to the student's needs, capabilities, and grade level?Timebound - Is the goal given a realistic timetable to be met by the student?Objectives and benchmarks are often used interchangeably when discussing goals, but they are not the same. Objectives are larger skills broken down into smaller skills and goals. A Benchmark looks more like the Annual IEP Goal but is broken into steps to achieve it. As Stephanie called it, ‘same staircase, different way to climb it'.Every state's guidance when it comes to skills can be very different, some have State Standards, some have Common Core, some have Essential Elements. Depending on even your district or your individual school, whether you include these in your IEP goals or not. Stephanie explains how this relates to the IDEA Federal Law, state laws, and local recommendations.Stephanie's Top Two Tips for IEP Preparation: 1. Send Draft IEP - Stephanie recommends always sending home a draft IEP including the present levels of baseline data and the proposed goals. This levels the playing field for the caregiver, and provides much more collaboration between guardian and education team.2. Consult the General Ed Teacher - Recognizing that there can be animosity between special education and general education teachers, Stephanie encourages collaboration and to work together on IEP accommodations to create individualized and classroom specific modifications.You can find out more about Stephanie via Mrs. D's Corner for educational resources and The Intentional IEP for IEP support.What's Inside:Tips for IEP Development.What is a SMART goal?The difference between objectives and benchmarks.How are state “standards” used in IEP goals?Does state testing affect IEP goals?Stephanie's top two suggestions for IEP meeting preparation.Mentioned In This Episode: The Intentional IEPMrs. D's CornerABA Speech: HomeStart Communicating Today – Waitlist – ABA SpeechHelp Me Find My Voice – EVERGREEN – ABA SpeechSeptember 13th FREE Webinar 8-9 pm eastern registration linkSeptember 14th FREE Webinar 8-9 pm eastern registration link
I hear this statement so much in the cleaning groups. It sounds like a great problem to have, but in reality, it's a defining statement. Let me give context to the people asking it. They are called solo cleaners. I was one for 16 years. A solo cleaner starts out super excited to make money for their family. They love cleaning and can do it as a side business. As they get better and their name gets passed around, they start adding more and more customers. But here's the problem. A solo cleaner has a limited number of customers they can work with. Even the most efficient solo cleaner even has a limit. For fun, let's create a solo cleaning robot named Bob. Bob doesn't sleep and is able to clean 3 houses Monday to Friday during the day and 4 offices each night and 8 on Saturday and Sunday. Bob is a machine, literally. He cleans 15 houses and 36 offices every week by himself. If each house and office is worth $150 per clean, Bob is creating just under $400,000 in annual revenue and approximately $350,000 per year in profit as he doesn't sleep or eat. All he needs are the supplies and insurances to do the work. This is absolutely ridiculous. No one can work like Bob. I just wanted to show you that a solo cleaning robot could earn $350,000 per year. But he couldn't earn any more. What if Bob was reprogrammed to need sleep? He would tap out around $175,000 or $200,000. The point is simple. There is always a limit in solo cleaning. Most solos out there are no where near Bob. Does that strike a chord? Are you working like crazy and have no more time to take on more customers. Congratulations! You've hit the wall. So what are you going to do about it?

I need to give credit to where credit is due for this episode. Thank you Vincent Pugliese for this mindset. If you don't know Vincent, check out "Content But Not Satisfied". Vincent has grown an online community called Total Life Freedom with over 100 strong in the past 4 years. The members inside this community have access to expert calls on various topics of online platform building, elite masterminds, internal courses, retreats, and of course, the extremely valuable connections between like-minded, freedom-seeking entrepreneurs. I have been a part of this community and mastermind since the first day. In fact, I am an original member and was there to help Vincent set up the foundation. I've had a unique perspective of watching Vincent build this community and raise up leaders from within it. I remember the hard times too, such as last summer. We stayed together in Nashville for Podcast Movement. When the masses went to the insane iHeart afterparty with drinking, we stuck around the hotel to mastermind. You see, Vincent had built a great community. But like any business, he had some parts and people that were higher maintenance than others. I showed him my 2 x 2 grid to map out the various aspects of his business. I talked about this in "Why I Fired My First Client", where I divided all of our clients into 4 groups - low-paying & high-drama, high-paying & low-drama, high-paying & high-drama, and low-paying & low drama. When you hear these listed out, it's obvious that we want the high-paying & low-drama and don't want the low-paying & high-drama. It's the other two groups that cause us so much grief. I explained this to Vincent and he started getting excited. Then he asked if we could add a mid-range box and make it 3 x 3. That's when I got excited. We started mapping his various clients and income streams on this grid. It spoke so loud that we knew what he needed to do. I did the same exercise for us as well. By the way, this is vintage Ken & Vincent since we met at a Dave Ramsey, Seth Godin, Gary Vee conference in 2014. We mastermind so well together. When the drunkards returned from the iHeart party, we were chilling in the hotel restaurant with wings and our maps. We were so excited. Vincent pledged that he would raise the standards in his community to have 100 amazing people that were all low-drama. Some were low-paying and some were high, but no one brought drama. They would be an ultra generous community always looking out for others. This was the vision. This episode releases at the 1-year mark of that mapping meeting. Vincent's vision has come to fruition. TLF has leveled up more than I've ever seen it. Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website
Smart goal, maybe you've heard it before. I believe I've talked about it once, maybe twice here on the podcast before. And if you've gone through any of some of my trainings, especially for goal setting, you've probably heard me talk about it. Maybe you've heard of other places too. I'm not the creator of a smart goal. I'm just sharing this awesome idea of it with you. And now I'm excited to share it with you because it has really, truly helped me achieve my goals so that I'm able to actually accomplish them and live it out and make my dreams a reality.
I spent two full weeks in San Diego where I became a certified NLP Speaker and a Trainer of Influence. In this episode I share one of my presentations from that training where I introduce SMART Goals in a slightly different and more effective way.

When I started this podcast in late 2019, I never imagined in a million years that I'd be eulogizing my father a year later. If you get a chance, check out the Tribute to My Father from December 17th, 2020. Ken Carfagno, Sr was born in Northeast Philadelphia on May 11th, 1936. He was the youngest of 6. Ken Sr. married Gabriella Corbett on October 20th, 1956. They were 20 years old. Soon after, they had their first of three sons, Ken Carfagno, Jr. That's my dad. 18-year-old Ken Jr married 16-year-old Lynn Driban in August 1976 and Ken Carfagno III was born on March 1st, 1977. Ken Sr became a Pop-Pop at the age of 40. My parents didn't stay married long. I have shared this so many times in this podcast as it's so vital to understand me. My single mom raised me during the week as a kid, while my dad and mostly my Pop-Pop raised me on weekends. The most influential man in my life has always been my Pop-Pop. In latter years, I started calling him my father because he raised me into the man that I am. Thank you for listening to this opening and my genealogy story. I just wanted to give you context to this episode. My Pop-Pop had a favorite breakfast diner. It's called the Jem Restaurant in East Norriton, PA. Tony Bello opened this restaurant in 1974 with the sole goal of serving & providing a place for the community to connect. Due to the 1950's theme, it attracted many patrons that are nostalgic from that era. My Pop-Pop definitely found this at the Jem. He LOVED the 50's. As I said, he fell in love with his bride, my Nana in 1951. He went steady with her while they finished school. He worked at her parent's bakery to save up money listening to his favorites of Frank Sinatra and Jo Stafford. Pop loved the 50's and he would mosey into the Jem every Saturday morning for years. His routine was the same. He's sit at one of the counter stools with his newspaper and talk to the other old guys that were there. They all knew him. Tony knew him. He'd order the same thing. A decaf coffee and corn muffin. He was so proud of me. I heard stories over the years of how the old guys and Tony at the Jem all knew that Ken's grandson was a Penn State grad, an engineer. He owned a cleaning company. He was married to the best daughter ever. He gave the family the first girl (Christianna) in 3 generations. The only thing he didn't brag about me was how badly I'd beat him in ping-pong.Read the rest of this article at the Smart Cleaning School website

I gave this talk at my local Montgomery Country Business Alliance (MCBA) meeting in June on Interpersonal Skills. Here are the notes from that talk!MCBA Talk on Interpersonal Skills – Ken Carfagno 6/21/22This is a HUGE topic to cover! I will barely scratch the surface in 30 minutes. Therefore, let me give you a few books to check out on your own. My story: I was a selfish, shy, introverted engineer when I left PA in 2000.

In "This Moment with Angela Brown", we relive her childhood and early adulthood through the lessons she learned along the way. It's so interesting to see how the traits that make her successful today were forced at various ages. In this episode, we conclude the interview with Angela Brown. This portion of the conversation with Angela opens with a question on how she is able to take so much action. She says. "I call it Snag Success. You don't get success without the snags. A snag is the place where you don't know what do to next. I go as fast as I can to get to the next snag. Then I figure out how to get through the snag so I can run to the next one."We discussed overcoming fear. She said this. "It's about them, them, them, them, them. They don't care about me. They just want a solution. The fear is lessened when you can realize it's not about you. People just don't really care about you that much."Angela shares her early housecleaning business and how she was able to grow so fast. She applied everything she learned up until that point and even went back to community college. She grew across North and into South Carolina. Other cleaning companies found her and asked for help. She started flying to other cities on weekends to train cleaners around the country and 31 other countries. Her schedule was mind-blowing to build her local cleaning business and building her team during the week. Then she boarded a place to another location somewhere in the world to train other cleaning company owners. There are so many "coaches" in the cleaning industry. They achieve something and then say they are a coach. Angela has trained companies in 31 countries for years. She is a coach because of her experience and success. The reality is that few are true coaches and others are guides. Angela wraps up this episode with a touching story about helping a troubled teen. It lead her to sell her 25-year house cleaning business. She needed to work from home and saw the opportunity on the internet and YouTube. She wrote a book, "How to Start Your Own House Cleaning Company" and gave it away for free for a year. This bought her the time to take her years of training and move it online. That is the Genesis story to the wildly popular, "Angela Brown Cleaning" YouTube Channel with over a quarter million subscribers as of this podcast release and her podcast, blogs, and online memberships and courses through Savvy Cleaner.

Angela Brown is a 25-year veteran of house cleaning, #1 YouTuber and podcaster with her show "Ask a House Cleaner", and a guru in our industry. I have been friends with Angela for 5 years. In fact, she was the first person to really challenge me to start a podcast in late 2016. Angela is highly respected in the residential cleaning world and is helping thousands to grow their house cleaning businesses. In this double interview, we dive into so many topics that make Angela... Angela. You will see that she is just like you. She just persevered through every adversity over and over again with an insatiable desire for learning. I love this quote early on in part 1 of the interview. "I was taught how to learn and I never stopped learning. When most people go through school, there comes a graduation time and for some reason they give themselves permission to stop learning. For me, it wasn't about being humble. It was more about me being aware that my learning never stops. No one was ever coming to graduate me... ever. So everyday, I say. How can I do it better? How can I look at yesterday and do it better?" This is what sets Angela apart.Angela grew up in a family of 19 kids in Utah. She is the 4th oldest of 7 girls and 12 boys. Large families was all that Angela knew. It wasn't weird or different until she moved east to find families with 2 kids. Growing up in such a large family on a farm taught every Brown the meaning of hard work. It's the defining characteristic that Angela took from her childhood.This Moment Concept - We have all been raised with a certain set of beliefs, characteristics, hardships, and privileges. Then we arrive at a moment in time with others that have another set of beliefs, etc. Now that we're here, what can we learn from each other in order to enhance our own lives and make other's lives better? Angela was brought up in a patriotic family that truly understood and appreciated the Land of Opportunity. She realized that she already lived in this country and didn't have to earn her way to America. She was already there and could go pursue this opportunity with her hard work ethic. This was taught in her homeschool and she read many immigrant stories.She moved to Charlotte, North Carolina at 17 to become a nanny. But her integrity and care for families forced her to leave this job. This opened up many hardships and opportunities. Curiosity, hard work, honesty, vulnerability were traits that transformed an 18-year-old homeless girl into a Toastmasters, National Speakers Association, bartering, cleaning, and Success Magazine inner circle influencer. Brian Tracey was a huge mentor through his tapes and books. She tells a great pay-it-forward story about meeting him in person.

This is the first-ever podcast swap on the Smart Cleaning School. I was recently interviewed by my good friend John Stange in front of his Platform Launchers live audience. In this interview, John wanted me to teach the benefits and synergy of running a local service-based business along with growing a platform. Let me briefly tell you about John Stange. He is a pastor in the Philadelphia area that has developed over 10 income streams outside of his pastor's income. He is a platform builder. John's first platform is called DesireJesus.com, where he has been blogging, selling books and ads while helping Christians grow closer to Jesus for years. John also started the Daily Audio Bible Podcast in 2016, which has just surpassed 8 million downloads. I remember meeting John in person for the first time. We met at Five Guys. As he strolled up to the storefront, I heard his voice and instantly thought, 'this guy has a voice for radio'. 8 million others apparently agree. John has been able to reach the masses with his 2021 book, "Dwell on These Things", that I promoted in the self-titled podcast. John has been so successful in developing his own platforms that he chose to start Platform Launchers to help others do the same. I highly recommend his membership if you're a cleaner wanting to do something else to help others. I hope you enjoy this podcast from Platform Builders and John Stange. John has given me permission to share it. Make sure to check out Platform Launchers if you have ever thought about starting something on the side to help others.
After 12 years of solo cleaning, I ventured into the world of online coaching and courses in this amazing industry. Andrea McCoy was my second one-to-one coaching client. We talked for an hour every week for over a year as she was getting her business started. I interviewed her in the summer of 2019 as I was preparing to launch this podcast. Andrea definitely edified me as a coach, but that's not why I aired her interview as the 3rd episode of this podcast in October 2019. I loved her Why and her message. Andrea just wanted a business that would provide peace of mind for her large family. Peachy Clean out of St. George, UT has provided that for her over these last several years. I wanted to re-share this episode to newer listeners. Andrea's interview is still ranked in the Top 10 of all Smart Cleaning School podcast episodes in total downloads.Check out my interview with the CBF Founder, entitled "A Buffalo Charges the Storm with Debbie Sardone". Debbie is offering free consultations to listeners of this show through the Smart Cleaning School Resources Page at smartcleaningschool.com/resources to see if CBF could be the right solution for you.

Tune in as Coach Ashlie Walton and Detective Walton break down the micro steps needed in order to actually achieve your SMART goals... And how understanding the concept of a Russian Nesting Doll will help with this. ⩥ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL ⩤ https://bi3xbvVont.ly/ CLICK HERE for our best-selling products: https://amzn.to/3xaG3xw and https://rdbl.co/3DIQVUC CLICK HERE to join our free Police, Fire, Military and Families Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/38w2e7r Check out our website and learn more about how you can work with LEO Warriors by going to: https://www.leowarriors.com/ Like what you hear?
