Back in the olden days before the internet was really popular and you could Google search anything, there was trial and error. If you wanted to start a house cleaning business from scratch you could, but it was rarely an overnight success for anybody.

If you’re here because you have an interest in house cleaning or in upgrading your life and you want to start a house cleaning business,welcome.
House cleaning business is a 49 billion dollar a year industry that is nearly recession proof – when times get hard, people work more hours to pay the bills, they have less time at home to clean,so they outsource their cleaning – which means more business for you and me.
Another awesome reason to start a house cleaning business is this: unlike a regular 9 to 5 job if you get fired, you’re not out of work. You simply add another customer into your new available time slot and keep going. And you will learn here how to do such an amazing job,that you will never get fired, and your clients will never want you toleave.

CAUTION: this book may rock your worldview!
Working as a personal trainer for the past 15 years has given me an extremely blessed life and I’m thankful every day that this is my profession. I love the fact that I get paid to positively impact the lives of my clients every single day. I put together this book to to help others achieve a career as rewarding as the one I’ve experienced. Hopefully this guide will help you find the same joy, satisfaction, and success that I have found in this dynamic profession.
This is my story and I hope you like it. It comes from my heart.
I received my education and training from the Athletic University of Rabat, Morocco (the National Academy of Sports Medicine), as well as an extensive amount of practical knowledge gained as a professional track and field athlete. More important than my knowledge of fitness and athleticism is my passion for helping others achieve success in the most important (yet overlooked) aspect of their lives: health and wellness.
The holistic integration of medical knowledge and physical fitness is a combination that is far too often overlooked. My mission is based on the concept of simplifying and building a strong foundation of principles and tools to allow people to live a realistic balanced lifestyle. I am committed to developing customized programs, paralleled with ongoing motivation, that will allow clients to reach their ultimate fitness goals. Changing our bodies is very challenging (just like changing our lifestyle), but with a well defined plan of action to follow, it becomes much more manageable.
My philosophy is based on the concept that we are all on our own journey. Throughout that journey we are continuously learning lessons we need in order to become the most amazing versions of ourselves. With each challenge, we have one choice: to run away or to embrace it and grow as an individual.
