Why Do You Love Your Business?
By: Ashley Poulter
Being in love is greaMiller_Mary_4965 280t. Being in love with your business, when you’re an entrepreneur, is even better. Waking up each morning knowing you are getting to do exactly what you love is more than most people could ever say about any job they have had. Although there are days when tossing in your hat seems like a viable option, remembering how much you love your job can quickly snap an entrepreneur out of that mentality. Different business owners also have different reason why they love their business. It might be the products or the customers they deal with, or it could even be the fact that they are the ones in charge of it all. The reasons are as varied as the businesses themselves.

“Because my work changes the lives and the mind set of people around me” -Mary Miller

I love my business because my work changes the lives and the mind set of people around me to see beyond their current circumstances. It’s not just about cleaning toilets and mopping floors, it’s about going after a bigger future and being excited about the possibilities. Being a janitor is not a glorious job and rarely is it a job that people want to make into a career. At JANCOA Janitorial Services, we have recognized this reality and put in place a program to help our employees achieve their dreams, whether it be something as large as owning their own business to smaller goals like getting their GED or receiving their driver’s license. This program is called “The Dream Manager” and it allows our employees to meet with our dream manager regularly to set goals and to help stay on track no matter the size of their goal. We have had employees quit smoking, learn a second language, and we have had several employees buy their first home! It’s wonderful to see these people grow and achieve something that at one point, they may have deemed impossible. I have told people that similar to The Blue Brothers, I am on a mission from God and I am disguised as a janitor.
