If you’re thinking of starting a business of any size, you naturally have one aim: Success. Mary Findley is a veteran cleaning expert and President of Mary Moppins Co.

However, there’s nothing wrong with starting small and focusing most on what you can do to start generating revenue from your business as quickly as possible – then you can start looking for more flexible work arrangements (a part time job perhaps) that may give you more free time to focus on your side business that’s starting to bring in some money.
From there, take a look around online to see if you can get a better price for them by purchasing on or something similar, but understand that there’s definitely risk involved with this type of business (getting scammed from int’l manufacturers, faulty goods, delayed shipments, etc) and your margins will be very small until you reach enough scale to be supplying city-wide or regionally.
