the lean maid business model
  • Work from home.
  • Virtual assistants (sales, dispatching).
  • Employees are dispatched from home.
  • Use software to reduce headcount.

Reduce costs dramatically:

  • Save on office rent instead use shared office/work from home.
  • Use storage units $50-$100/mo vs. a warehouse.
  • Direct dispatch – Employees use their cars – less driving = more cleaning.
  • Use VA’s with good software.
