UPDATE: After more than 6 Months of figuring out our next step, we've decided it's in our best interest to sell the business.
This decision was not taken lightly. I have over 15 years in this industry, but after everything that happened last year between break downs & an injury to my right elbow; it's just doesn't make financial sense to invest another $50K+ into a business that I can't physically do anymore.
Katie & I also thought about starting a commercial division, but honestly the cost of doing business in New York is to high and in order to keep the level of workmanship that I expect, we would have had to increase our prices my about 3x. That's not an exageration. Not 150%, not 200%, I really mean 300%. Which leads to another reason I'm moving on.
Last year I spent too much time on jobs & ended up paying to clean more than a few carpets. People would always say what a good job I did, but in doing so & not charging acordingly, I pretty much put my self out of business. There's nothing worse than doing a job where the harder you work, the less you make. Our running cost are about $45/hr, so think about the last time I may have cleaned your carpets and how much I charged vs the time I was on the job. Multiple time by $45, take that number and subtract from what I charged. You'll probably come up with somewhere in the neighborhood of $5.67/hr. Cause that's what I averaged last year. Well, it will be a little more since that figure is my take after taxes.
I would like to thank all our customers we've served throughout the years. We currently have the business for sale and any you can send inquieries to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thanks again for your business,
-Brandon & Katie Reilly
To See what me & Katie have been upto, check out our website that showcases some of the projects we've been working on over the past 8 months.
Katie has picked up web development so quick over the past year. I've been in and out of IT for 22+ years, but I've decided to take the plunge & explore a carreer in the field which is something I've always wanted todo.
With Katie helping and already surpassing me in some front end design methods, I gota say I have no regrets in closing the business. We make a great team and I'm excited to be going into phase 2 of our careers working together on these projects with her.
