Mike Oz..........you're on the money.................let's break up our lives to reality, and a common scence method of accumulating wealth starting at a young age of 18 with no education, little promise, and a $ 10.00/ hour job..........assuming a 40 hour work week with a company that won't close it's doors if it rains too hard .
 
$ 400.00/ week pay ( 22% overall tax bracket, which will be returned at years end due to a poverty level income ) Here is how to extend your dollar. Do this over a 5 year period.
 
Live close to work where you can walk or bike.
Pay yourself first before any bills
DO NOT get MasterCard or Visa
Find yourself a room within a home for a modest weekly or monthly rent (approx. equal to 60 % or 70% of 1 weeks take home pay to cover the month.
Limit your outings to a reasonable activity ( remember 5 years go by fast.
 
You should be able o save an easy $ 10,000/year
5 years = $ 50,000
 
Not bad for a high school dropout without promise. How many 23 year olds with an education and good paying job have $ 50,000.
 
Getting rich is not about how much money you make...................it's all about how much money you save.

nightrider.
And to think we didn't have to pay and attend a seminar or buy a book to figure that out.
But a fool and his money is soon parted, thats why these scammers make money from hard workers looking for a quick get rich quick scheme.
NEWS FLASH................. there is NO such scheme.

Joe Polish makes money off selling to lazy ass dumb carpet cleaners who aren't willing to think for themselves.
 
Joe Polish can't tell you anyhting that you can't learn on your own with a little reading and some trial and error.
 
Here is some free Steamer advise
 
FREE!!!
 
1) Don't be affraid to drop a couple of bucks advertising... no ones going to call you if they can't find you...
 
2) Once you get a call, be warm and helpful on the phone and book that damn call.
 
3) once your in the house give them the best damn service anywhere...that means show up on time...  look clean.. with working equipment, and a big f**king smile on your face, in the greatest mood like you just got a blow job after you found out you won 10 million dollars.
 
4) repeat steps 1 through 3 until the refferals & repeats start to kick in
 
5) keep advertising  just to build business and improve consumer cofidence.
 
6) what ever you do if it's ads..cards..programs...flyers..lettering on the damn van apply the K.I.S.S. theory  
 
this was free info..

and worth every dime of it.  I agree with steamer.  Did I just say that?

Steamer is right.  Treat this like any other business.  The old saying "build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door"  has never been true.  Spend money advertising and don't blow what it brings you or you can find a lucrative career at home depot.
Are you in a high paying business or are you just a self employed low paid grunt who thinks this business provides dignity?

There are too many businesses that offer piss poor service.
 
I can honestly tell you alot of my customers call me because they know that I'm going to be there on time...and super friendly...
 
The girls thats answer my phones are super sweet...and return calls right away if they are on the line...
 
it's not always about the cleaning... it's the total package.
 
I think I have never said this before, and won't say it again.  It's IMPORTANT to take Visa and M/C and have the symbols on every communication piece you put out.  It sepreates you from the joe blows.. it shows you are not a fly by nighter..
 
It takes good credit to be a merchant, and customers respect that.
 
thats another free tip

Building a solid business and building a solid foundation for wealth are miles apart . If you have a successful business making money and allowing you to extrapolate an income from it is all fine, but if the balance of the money that sits in a business account just sits there then you're on the road to nowhere.................Money has to be your best employee, doubling and tripling itself by ways of investment and venture .
 
Building wealth is a game of chance, wits, timming and aggression.
 
Remember all businesses usually all fail eventually............there are not alot of businesses out there that are 60 to 100 years old.

Yep, all Polish did was take what was already out there and repackage it.

How does the old saying go, You can't reinvent the wheel?

Joe did the homework that it takes, put it into the context of carpet cleaning business owners and presented it in a way that is easy to understand and easier to impliment. We should appreciate his efforts instead of talking poorly about his outstanding efforts. Instead of paying him 1500 I am doing the research and homework myself, it's not easy and it would be much easier to pay 1500 to get it all set up for me, but this is my choice, dont patronize or critisize people for making things easier on themselves.

Wouldn't think of it.  We all learn more from the things that go wrong than from that which worked the first time.  And no doubt learning by doing has a greater impact than relying on someone as an answer man.

Would you rather be the man who reads about history, writes about history or makes history?  Joe's customers read, he writes while others actually give him something to write about.  You may very well turn into one that he writes about, who knows?

Good luck Benjamin.

it all starts here...
 
a customer wrote today...
 

To Whom it may concern,

 

I am just writing to say what an excellent and professional job Earl did today at our place Waterdown. He was very polite and took the time to do a complete job. Thank you very much and we would recommend your services to others. This is the first time I've ever taken the time to do this but I felt Earl went above and beyond.

 

Thanks again,

Chris and Tracy
 
See I will get the repeat next year....and I will get referrals.
 
Advertise show up and do the best damn job that you can!
