KB Quality Cleaning & Home Services LLC

Name: Kristen Ayers

Location: Saint Cloud, FL 

Type of Business:
Cleaning & Lawn Care Services

What does your business do?
We provide free cleaning for clients with cancer. We also provide caregiving services, lawn care, help with special projects and help to keep our city clean.

When and why did you start the biz?

How Many People are in your Company?

Where's your office?
I Do all advertising, scheduling and client acquisition on my prepaid phone. I keep all of my supplies in my SUV. I keep some tools at home.

What's the toughest part of running your biz?
Cleaning for clients who want amazing service, but don't like to pay full price. Also, getting everyone to stick to our schedule is a daunting task as well.

What's the most fun part?
Connecting with clients. And seeing the final product. We walk into chaos, and leave with it looking like a slice of paradise!

Anything you would have done differently?
I wouldve hired a CPA to guide me in the startup phase. It took almost 6 months to figure out licensing and insurance. But once I got it up.and running, we've been smoothe sailing.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
We just started offering lawn care. We want to be the company people think about when any home project pops up. We want to start hiring employees so we can work on our business instead of in it.

What advice do you have for others?
Find what you love. Take that risk. Make that sacrifice. Speak your truth. Help others. Don't give up. Always research. Reading rules! Kids come first. Treat clients like family.

How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I'm brand new, but I plan to use it for networking, marketing and business ideas and I'll suggest my friends to check you out as well. This is a fantastic concept. We need more companies like yours.

School (where, still in school, degree)?
Valencia College & Northwest Florida State College, Qualiside Real Estate School. AA Degree. I would love to get my bachelor's degree once my kids are settled I'm school. I graduated HS two years early with a 4.0 GPA. Having kids slowed me down, but didnt stop me!

Prior jobs or business?
Timeshare sales, Bartender, Training manager, Target Manager, Mom

Favorite Food?
Mom's Spaghetti

What are your pets' names?

Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Not currently :

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
I got very sick after a miscarriage last year and two surgeries following that. I researched how to make money for my family even though I wasnt physically able and one day I just got tired of being broke, so I just forced myself to place a Craigslist ad. I got my first client in 2 hours. And the rest is history.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
My mother for teaching me to never give up. My husband for supporting me through every health scare and crazy idea. My kids for always giving me the drive to succeed and of course, Idea Cafe for this wonderful opportunity.
