I currently own and run a successful Window Cleaning/Service Based Company based out of Neenah, WI. I started this company in 2001 at the age of 20 and self taught myself the entire business. Over the years we have had some ups and downs. We are currently in the phase of downsizing as it is impossible to find employees, not good ones just anyone at all. We are in a major labor shortage. We were never able to cross the hurdle of getting a lead person in the office and in the field. We are a seasonal business so this make it extremely difficult to retain employees and have year round work for everyone. This and numerous other factors over the years have caused me to realize I simply no longer have the love and passion I once had for this business.
