metro area or radius

This is something that I found to be a big question in my business running, because carpet cleaning is not only combined of time at the customer. Big part of time that i spend is on driving to my customers, and this is very variant depending on time of the day and roads quality.
It interesting that sometimes it can take me this same amount of time to get from one part of town to other as it would be to go from town centre to somewhere 10mil outside of town. For this very reason I do cover big radius around my town as traveling is rather not relevant there sometimes. And I do like driving as it is time for me to quiet down a bit between customers and obviously to check what is happening on Facebook with all my friends.
On serious note, this strategy works with me because there are some large towns around my area of interest which is Cardiff. Because there are some large centers of population around I still get S good deal of density to justify me traveling there. Additionally there is increase in population and density for Cardiff which will be even better for me in near future.


Grow it or expand?

I am in a position that I would like to build my business further as I feel that not much more I can do working on my own, however I’m not a big fun of emptying someone at the moment as I like that I can ensure best quality of my job. If I’ll have someone working for me it will be very difficult to have the assurance of quality, so it is on my mind. Should I diversify with so.e new business that could be run without me being a main value adding individual or just employ someone that I can increase volume of what I am doing and by this gain some more experience.
There are things on my mind that I would like to start, one of them is to start selling things online, like supplements and other things related to sport and fitness.

I know that starting business based online I can certainly have economy of scale and by this increase my potential return on investment so that I’ll get quicker to were I want to be. As I do fancy getting my first million before I’ll turn 40, so fur getting there slowly (way to slow ?)


Its hard to say

Sometimes you may faced with questions that don’t have answere, something in line of can you remove this and that. I do come across those and often I just say that I have success stories with those but I can’t say that they will be removable as it is very dependant on many conditions and one can’t be sure with whole certainty.
Frankly best thing to do is to ask as many questions as it is possible and then just move from there, as I find it being very enriching to find out what sort of stains there are and build up a bit of contract with my customers before dealing with them in those terms. I just hope that they will get confidence from my line of questioning and it will prone them to make decision that will be in my favour.
I gad so many different stains already in my carrier and I cam say that it cam be a learning experience if you allow it. Sometimes I would take less the. I quoted my customers just because I feel that it is a fair thing to do. I come from a stand point that it is all about providing benefit to the customer as it will go a long way in a businesses life.
