Small Business Hurdles – WellNest Story Continues! My wife and I are focusing on celebrating more. It’s something I’ve always struggled with as I tend to get so ingrained in “the next thing.” Celebrations build bonds, but all too often bad times overtake the good. Some simple examples where we’ve consciously focused on celebrating: Acid reflux in babies sucks. After weeks of “figuring it out,” little man is finally eating what he should be. Instead of…

Dadpreneur Series: The Problem with Perfectionism

By | Dadpreneur Series, Health and Wellness, Home Cleaners Near Me | No Comments

Good, Better and Best – Learning with WellNest I keep finding myself coming across the same struggle the past couple weeks with both taking care of the little man and building WellNest Home Cleaning — perfectionism. Perfectionism will kill a start-up before it even launches. Whether it’s tech, a residential cleaning service, a new granola bar, regardless of what it is..build to the absolute minimum, get it out to market, and iterate in public. It’s easy…

Vacuums and The WellNest Way In building WellNest, we have had to make a couple of decisions that are definitely unexpected for a residential cleaning company. One particular decision — we are a residential cleaning company yet we use our customers’ vacuums. Rationale below. Vacuums: The cleaning companies we used to hire always brought a vacuum. Had they not, we probably would’ve wondered why we were paying them. But the same vacuum used to clean other homes…

Growing Babies and Growing WellNest I enjoy giving the little man his bottle in the morning and at night. This gives me a chance to have some bonding time with him and makes my wife’s life easier since she can pump in a much more relaxed manner. I learned a valuable lesson in daddy-ing the other night that really relates to life as a whole and as the owner of a home cleaning service…know the…

By | Dadpreneur Series, Health and Wellness, Home Cleaners Near Me | One Comment

Owning and Operating – A Family and Business Life Parenting a newborn and owning a cleaning service is actually surprisingly similar. Little man is eight weeks old, WellNest is three weeks old, and the combination of the two had us laughing pretty hard last night. The other night I got home late and asked my wife how she and little man were (“good”) then started blabbering about my day until she was looking at me…
