I’ve been living in another country with my hubby for the past 5 years. I was getting bored staying at home as a housewife for so long, so another friend and I got together and decided to start our own company. We clean houses and set our own house cleaning prices for every home that we clean. Our company is doing much better than we thought it would, and we are both proud of the hard work that we have put into it. Our husbands are also very proud of us. Owning my own business is not something that I ever thought would happen, but I really enjoy every part of it.
I did not go to college, so I don’t have a lot to offer to most businesses. I suppose that I could have started working in an office early on as a receptionist. That would have allowed me to work my way up in whatever company that I started working for. Instead, I got married, had a baby just nine months after we were married, and I spent my time taking care of our child and our home. My husband and I were very happy with this arrangement. He has a job that keeps him very busy, and he doesn’t have a lot of time to relax or spend at home. I took care of everything so that he could work without worrying about what goes on at home.
When our daughter became old enough to attent elementary school, I found that I had a lot of time on my hands. That is when I found myself wishing that I could find a job. I had been spending my days just cleaning the house, and I would get it done rather early. So, I had a lot of free time, and that’s not the type of life I want to live. I was explaining this to my friend when she came up with the idea of starting our own company.
