Firstly was the training required, my son Jon has Asperger’s and struggles socially, he loves to clean and is so fastidious. Cleaning seemed the perfect job for him. I had to medically retire from my job. Re training here I come, looking around for appropriate training in the field of helping people in traumatic circumstances through cleaning and to help minimise what I see as financial rape of those in need. We had to go off shore and found an awesome training program on line through Amdecon in USA, Jon and myself sat and studied for months and passed our 3 certificates (Bio Hazard, Hoarder, Meth Decontamination).
My mother passed away and I was left enough money to set up the business with out any debt.
When I was a counsellor many clients I worked with call me Mrs Sun Shine, for many months we struggled deciding on a name my 7 kids put many ideas forward as you can imagine some not that appropriate. after we decided on Sunshine Cleaners I found out about the movie I watched it and loved it, knowing we made the right decision.
I am grateful for some of the wonderful people I have met and have helped with design, van signage, website (Phillipa), Vistaprint business cards and flyers. I had NO idea of this stuff and didn’t know where to start.
