Carrie purchased a resale cleaning business back in December of 2007. At that time, the economy was at the beginning stages of an economic recession and things quickly spiraled out of control. Carrie lost half of her customers within the first 3 months of opening. To make matters worse, her office manager was stealing customers and operating a business from her home. Carrie fired her Office Manager, which left her to manage and operate a business she had no idea how to run. Shortly thereafter, Carrie spent $30k on print advertising which resulted in zero leads and a nearly depleted bank account. Things were really bad for a long time and Carrie wrestled with closing the business and shutting her doors for good. Through much trial and error, the business finally began to grow and in 2010 Carrie decided hired a business coach. With the advice and guidance of her business coach, Carrie’s business grew to 7-figures. Today, Carrie’s mission is to help other struggling business owners who were once just like her. Carrie is proof that no matter where you start, doesn’t have to be where you finish.
