Location: Cleveland Heights, OH 

Type of Business:
Multipurpose Cleaning Service

What does your business do?
CLEAN WATER! A TRASH AND DEBRIS CLEAN UP SERVICE! deals with foreclosure cleanouts, residential/commercial cleanouts, hauling, dumping, and debris removal.

When and why did you start the biz?
I started my business originally to clean inner city neighborhoods of debris/litter, but it expanded to working with national property preservation companies and additional services for commercial/residential clients.

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I have office space in Cleveland Heights, Oh ironically across the street from my very first job from childhood. (Zagara's Marketplace)

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part of running this business is wearing multiple hats.

What's the most fun part?
Realizing that I am always learning. When I was told to get insurance I learned the difference between Errors and Omission Insurance and General Liabilty. Just knowing the types of insurance policies was unique because before the business I would have not had a clue.

Anything you would have done differently?
No! Just like in Jiu-Jitsu the journey never ends. Meaning that building a business is a journey and going through trials and tribulations is just as good as going through the good times. The rejections, no's and negative energy from other's are nothing more than teaching mechanisms to become stronger.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Expansion! I want to create jobs, stimulate the economy, especially in Northeast Ohio.

What advice do you have for others?
NEVER EVER GIVE UP! Be it business, education, family, sports, etc. The beauty of anything you do is going through the journey.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
It's about growth. Constantly developing a craft is essential. Idea Caf´┐Ż will help with this growth.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice

Prior jobs or business?
Educator in Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Positive Education Program.

Favorite Food?

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
Having to ask to use the bathroom at work as a grown man.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
