    Howdy!

    So here I'm going to talk about how I created my own business from the scratch.

    I'm 25 years old and I own a real state company, in a European country with a lot of tourism.
    I do cleaning services, laundry, reservations management, check-ins and outs.

    I've started my company in my last year in college, started publishing my services in a related facebook group, got some people sending me messages, I told my price, its like cutting your neighbors grass.

    I've worked my ass off in the first year 10 to 12 hours a day, cleaning doing laundry, receiving people.
    Got a lot of clients, there evaluations on reservation websites like airbnb and booking are the best they ever had.

    Nowadays, 2 years later, I have all my family working on that business, separating all my services into departments and my family runs them. I've a few employees running with contracts.

    The point about this thread is to show that nowadays with all government taxes is still possible to create a legit business without being a MIT genius or having a innovating idea.
    And yes, I've worked for someone else aswell while in college and it sucks going to work everyday to make other people business to grow.

    Happy for u, keep it up ! ( not to get into your business) but be careful when you put members of your familly to work with you beside if u treat them same as employees.I saw a lot of people succeed and they let familly members work with them and familly members start to feel comfortable to show at work late and do whatever they want.

    Since I have different kinds of service, I've put them doing the management of those services.
    Example: Checking cleaning schedules, checking the work after the employees clean to see if everything its ok, those things I do not have time to do because I doing other things related to the company.

    This is really inspiring. Proves that one doesn't need a lot of capital, or a college education to start and make a business profitable. Thanks for sharing bruv.

    That is the point of this thread!
    I had no initial investment, used some cleaning material I had stocked at home and lets work.
    Made my first euros that way, buyed some more material to clean better and faster.

    Very motivational. Some consider such services as inferior not remembering that in business all that matters is reliable ROI.

    Hey
    Congratulations on your Business!
    Working for others can be hard specially if you are doing a job under them.
    Whereas, in your own venture, you are your own boss.

    This helped me be motivated

    Thanks!

    If you don't mind, can you tell me how much you charge your customers for your services?

    Every client is a client, I have a services full package with prices but every client has a variable, some want only this or that and its all negotiable.
    In that way I cannot tell your how much I charge since everything can be negotiable.

    What about just individually? Like how much is it just for a clean on its own per hour or just for the booking services on its own etc?

    You have to do the maths, for example:
    You need to calculate how much you people use to receive for those kinds of service (there is a lot of variables like per hour per m2 etc) + government taxes + good proft percentual.
    There is not a specifical price per hour because there is a lot of individuals not company associated that to that for lower prices, you just need to check where you live what a fair price and dont be shy, ask people how much they charge for the services and check in what values you can work.
