    Looked for it doing a search, its sort of at the top under all the banner ads in the green bar. I couldn't find it agin otherwise I would have posted the link to for you. Its a great feature to narrow down what you are looking for. It brought back many results just not that particular one I was thinking of.

    No thanks, I think when you become a company that offers too many different services people tend to think of the old saying "jack of all trades master of none" Its different when you offer Lawn care and Landscaping to snow plowing services, but house cleaning along with that seems too far at the other end of the spectrum. I would think this day-in-age people can barley trust you on their property let alone in their house. Just my opinion.

    Sure it will work !

    Set it up as a separate company, LLC or sub-S corporation, and start it off by marketing your services to your established customers, who already know you and have confidence in you!

    You will need to have insurance and your employees will need to be bonded.

    Research "Merry Maids" and other franchises for ideas such as uniforms, services, and you may get some fee information.

    It's a great idea, Go For It! There will <i>ALWAYS</i> be nay-sayers proclaiming "It won't work !" BS ! Make it happen!

    Hi Maxwells,

    Offer the services you need to keep yourself going, but I think you will be better in the long run if you search for a niche and not do too many things.
