1: What were your beginnings in the window cleaning trade?
“2003 I finished uni studies and moved to Sydney to play in bands. My day job at that time was working for a window cleaning company. We were working on a variety of properties, everything from car yards to luxurious domestic homes on Sydney Harbour. I stayed in this job until late 2006 and in that time developed my skills working with some of the city’s best. I have great memories of that time.”
2: What were you doing before Platinum Window Cleaning?
“After travelling the world for a while, I came back to complete my teaching degree in Brisbane. I then pursued a career as a high school music teacher for a number of years.”
3: How did Platinum Window Cleaning start?
“After discovering entrepreneurship and considering it as a new career option I decided to leave teaching and began trying a number of online business ventures but with little success. Leaving my job too early was a mistake and things started to get tough, I was running out of funds and needed something to work quickly. I began offering a regular window cleaning service to local shops, it was working and my new clients were loving it so I went for it.
Within 12 months I pretty much had a full schedule with over 200 shops on my list who I approached directly plus a growing number of larger commercial and domestic properties, these clients were all finding me through word of mouth. In January 2017 after much research and thought I made the big decision to continue in this industry and expand my small solo operation into a full branded company and am now in the process of building a team.”
