You have a couple great ideas for boosting your biz. Since people are gearing more towards going green these days and so many people have health problems related to breathing, using more economically friendly products in your business would be a great advertising strategy (and would also be healthier for you since indoor air is much more polluted than outdoor air). I have heard that Shaklee is a great company with great prouducts but I would encourage you to shop around for them so that you are getting the best value for them as well. I also work with a wellness company that is 24 years old and has many environmentally friendly, non-toxic products to choose from including the only EPA approved botanical disinfectant on the market. All our products are concentrated to save you money compared to the not so safe grocery store brands and we also have a nutritional line and a makeup and skincare line. You could choose to do your business using cleaning prouducts only or you could do another business along with yours and get great advertising for both. We have one of the top compensation plans on the market which I can show you if you are interested and you can save money at other stores on line as well. We have partnered with 650 online stores to date. We also have a home security system where we have recently partnered with GE that will we much less expensive and has top of the line technology with it that can be done with our biz or separately so there are many options.

If you are interested in checking our company out, I will be happy to get you all the details and answer any questions you have so that you can make an educated decision. Feel free to contact me at 608-524-3441 or go to one of my websites: or and request information so that I can give you a call at one of your most convenient times and days. You could also email me at: (subject line cleaning with safer products).

If you just want to go with what you have right now you could try radio ads or your community calender in your area. Ask for referrrals also. That is a great way to drum up new business.

Good luck in everything. I am a single mom as well and it is tough but so rewarding when you know you are doing your best.

Hi, I work for a company called Shaklee. We are the number 1 natural nutrition company in the US. We also invented the first green cleaner back in 1960. The company's green products have been featured on Oprah's favorite things show and are currently being used in the White House and VP's house. If you are interested you can incorporate this in your cleaning business and develop your business that way.

We also market natural nutrition (adult and children), natural personal care, antiaging, and natural weight loss. The compensation plan is exceptional....on average I work 10-20 hours per month and my bonus check is around 1000 dollars.

recruit!!! that's all i can say. i mean you can create a name for yourself and spread out. my grandmother has a pest control business she has ran by herself and still does (she's young) but she has one friend that works with her and they do it. she has REALLY good customers. she does good work so they send her to their friends and she gets paid..
