Why is it some owners of cleaning companies build successful businesses, while others fail? Do they work harder? Are they smarter? Are they really well-connected? No, not usually...

Listed below are some of the things successful cleaning business owners do to ensure their business is successful. And don't worry... these are things we can all do. It's simply a matter of determination and follow-through when setting your business goals.

1. It's important to write down your goals and put them in a place where you can always see them, read them, and reaffirm your desire to achieve them.

2. Make goals that are realistic and achievable. If you decide to start a cleaning business and have a goal to make $100,000 in your first six months, you might be making a goal that is not realistic or achievable. How about making a goal of gaining one new account each month -- something within reach.

3. Along with your goals, make a list of the benefits you'll receive when you achieve your goals. (I'm going to make more money than I would working at a job. I'm going to have more freedom and independence. I'm going to have my mornings free to spend with my children.)

4. Make a plan to achieve your goals. Yes, you have to actually do some work if you want to achieve your goals. Simply writing them down and reading them isn't going to do the trick.

5. Work on your plan in short steps that are achievable. Too many of us are easily overwhelmed when we create lofty goals. So create a list small daily tasks that you can easily achieve in order to reach your goals.

6. Write down the obstacles that you'll have to overcome in order to achieve your goal. When you know the obstacles, you'll be prepared when they happen.

7. Make a list of people who can help you achieve your goals. How many of you think you need to do it all on your own? Nonsense! People are willing to help. This is exactly why we created The Janitorial Store. We enjoy helping cleaning company owners become successful in their business. Our motto is, "being independent doesn't mean going it alone".

8. Make a list of the skills you need in order to achieve your goals. If you don't have some of the skills you need, who does? Maybe it's something you can contract out or hire someone to do. Don't like bookkeeping? Hire a part-time bookkeeper. Don't know how to clean carpet? Sub-contract to a professional carpet cleaner and build in a cushion so you both make money.

9. Make a commitment to your business. Some people have grand ideas of owning a wildly successful business but it never happens for them because they just can't seem to make the deep commitment it takes to make it happen. Be committed to the success of your cleaning business.
