Start A Cleaning Business With Maid In Business

Do You Want To Start, Grow or Develop A Cleaning Business?

Welcome to Maid In Business, an online information resource created for cleaning business owners by a cleaning business owner. There is no theory here, all the talk has been walked!!

Maid In Business was founded by me, Kelly Ward, after I was approached several times by other cleaning business owners asking for help with their sales, marketing, and business branding after watching me develop my own successful cleaning business and the Mrs. Mopp cleaning brand

Why Tune Into Maid In Business?

I know that running a cleaning business is hard! Running a cleaning business requires boundless energy and focus, and being a cleaner/cleaning business owner sometimes does not come with the respect it should! We are not taken seriously as a profession.

I’d like to help change that view…

Cleaning business owners tend to spend so much time working “IN” their cleaning businesses that they often don’t take the time to learn how to grow and develop it by learning how to work “ON” their business

This blog and vlog are designed to help YOU learn about the business cycle and to teach you sales, marketing and branding techniques that you can implement in your business immediately and get real, money-in-the-bank results with

There is no hard sell, no blag and no theory here,  just a whole lot of lessons learned from growing and developing my own business and brand, combined with over 10 years corporate sales and business development experience.


Walking My Talk

Over the last eight years I have had some great achievements, with my cleaning businesses – some great highs and many successes with both the commercial and domestic cleaning businesses I run, BUT I have equally had as many failures and made a million-billion mistakes too.

You know that saying “I wish I knew then what I know now”?

Well, Maid in Business was designed to be that knowledge for you!

The Business Cycle

Most people think “how hard can it be to run a cleaning business?”

Well, it’s very hard as it happens and is no different from running any other type of business out there. You need to be self-motivated, self-disciplined and extremely focused on your goal (and you have to stay that way too) while you juggle your cash flow, the staff member that just let you down, and that tricky customer who you just can’t please no matter how hard you try…
