| "When I completed jobStart, I started a position as a sub-contractor in Foodbasics and A&P. It went well for about a year, then my contractor lost the contract. This worked out well for me, as my wife and I began a new cleaning company on the side in Petrolia. My wife looks after the residential end of the business and I look after the commercial end. We have a full plate as my wife has full residential hours and a four story apartment building, which I help her with when I can as I have the Medical Centre. The medical centre has four doctors, a pharmacy and a chiropractor. This building takes me about 5 -6 hours a day and 5 days a week. Usually weekends off, but mostly that is the only time I have to repair floors etc. so I usually just work the Sat too. My business name is Knights Janitorial & Kleaning (my initials). |
Thank you for helping me work out my job related problems.... I still read the materials given to me when I feel lost or when I look for a direction."
