    Hi Dan:

    I have a what to do question. I had a call Tuesday of this week from a contractor that had a 8 floor hotel they wanted cleaned. Well the problem is I am a small cleaning company I don’t have the man power or the equipment for the job. I was told that I should put a bid in. I believe that it is better to turn it down that take it an not be able to preform and get a bad name. I told the women that and she said she would keep me on the list for something smaller. Am I right to do that?

    Hi Danny, you’ve asked a good question and one many cleaning businesses companies are faced with in running their companies.

    While I can’t say it was the ‘right’ answer, since I don’t know all of the specifics about the job or your situation, I can say that – I respect your answer and your being willing to ask for another opinion of the situation.

    Here’s the thing… these questions are tough because the answer often lies in evaluating many factors, such as:

    1) Is it a one time job only or recurring?
    2) If one time, if done well, could it lead to many other profitable job opportunities?
    3) Would it be profitable?
    4) Do I have the resources (equipment, people, time, expertise) do the job in the time required?
    5) Does the job fit into the kind of jobs I’m wanting to specialize in (niche?)
    4) Is it scalable? meaning is it the kind of work I could learn to successfully handle a lot of
    7) If I can’t handle it all myself, but I could sub out part of the work – could I find trusted, experienced, insured contractors to successfully handle the work in a timely manner; delivering quality results while STILL providing an adequate profit for me taking on the project?
    8)Would taking on the job help me open up to a new market OR likely quickly become a huge drain on time and resources at the expense of current customers/accounts?

    I’m sorry, I wish I could give you a short/correct answer to your question, but as in many things, the devil is often in the details. Hope these ideas and things to think about help – and, wishing you much success in your cleaning business.

    Best regards,
    Dan, CleanGuru LLC
