The 4-Week Rotating Schedule
Another solo cleaner took advantage of the free coaching calls that I offer on my website. Claudia Adriazola of CMA Cleaning and Organizing in Onalaska, WI has a big goal to build her cleaning company with systems and a team to provide her with time and money freedom. However, her current solo business is a mess right now. She cannot optimize her solo business because she has no scheduling foundation. That's when I asked permission to record her coaching call so I could teach the four-week rotating schedule. She accepted. This is the lesson that I cannot believe I missed in 300+ episodes. It is so vital and foundational.
Every cleaning company builds a customer base on a schedule. The schedule cannot be monthly. It has to be a fully recurring schedule and the calendar is 52 weeks. First divide the calendar into 4-week blocks. This produces 13 time blocks in every year that are identical. Otherwise, you end up doing what Claudia did. She allowed customers to pick the frequency of cleaning that made sense to them. Claudia had to learn that she is running the business and offering the service. She will have to stop all tri-weekly cleanings and move these customers to biweekly or monthly, which is every 4th week. She will have to stop monthly clients as-is and move them to every 4th week. This will allow her and you to build a repeatable schedule that you can absolutely optimize and scale to achieve the future goals that you have!
In this free coaching call, I also give Claudia 5 steps to completely transform her business with a fully automated schedule, working the same hours she is now, and to increase her income by $1,500 per month. I was thankful that Claudia allowed me to hit record as this was a lesson that should have been taught in the first 10 episodes. It's never too late!
