In "This Moment with Angela Brown", we relive her childhood and early adulthood through the lessons she learned along the way. It's so interesting to see how the traits that make her successful today were forced at various ages. In this episode, we conclude the interview with Angela Brown.
This portion of the conversation with Angela opens with a question on how she is able to take so much action. She says. "I call it Snag Success. You don't get success without the snags. A snag is the place where you don't know what do to next. I go as fast as I can to get to the next snag. Then I figure out how to get through the snag so I can run to the next one."
We discussed overcoming fear. She said this. "It's about them, them, them, them, them. They don't care about me. They just want a solution. The fear is lessened when you can realize it's not about you. People just don't really care about you that much."
Angela shares her early housecleaning business and how she was able to grow so fast. She applied everything she learned up until that point and even went back to community college. She grew across North and into South Carolina. Other cleaning companies found her and asked for help. She started flying to other cities on weekends to train cleaners around the country and 31 other countries. Her schedule was mind-blowing to build her local cleaning business and building her team during the week. Then she boarded a place to another location somewhere in the world to train other cleaning company owners. There are so many "coaches" in the cleaning industry. They achieve something and then say they are a coach. Angela has trained companies in 31 countries for years. She is a coach because of her experience and success. The reality is that few are true coaches and others are guides.
Angela wraps up this episode with a touching story about helping a troubled teen. It lead her to sell her 25-year house cleaning business. She needed to work from home and saw the opportunity on the internet and YouTube. She wrote a book, "How to Start Your Own House Cleaning Company" and gave it away for free for a year. This bought her the time to take her years of training and move it online. That is the Genesis story to the wildly popular, "Angela Brown Cleaning" YouTube Channel with over a quarter million subscribers as of this podcast release and her podcast, blogs, and online memberships and courses through Savvy Cleaner.
