House Cleaner (with Two Girls One Mop)

Sometimes you feel like you’re really helping the person if they’re going through a divorce or really having trouble getting rid of stuff…you’re helping them to move on in their life.

I want you to think for a moment about the top 5 things that you hate doing.  My made up survey says that the top answer on that list would be cleaning.  Ugh.  I don’t even like writing the word!  You know something is no good when everyone can easily do it, and yet TONS of individuals pay other people to do it for them.  Today we hear finally hear about the not so bad side of cleaning…and the weird side; it’s really a good, bad, ugly sort of situation.  We’ll learn about what it’s like to be on the other side of the mop, getting paid for it.

Autonomy is the biggest word that sticks out for me. That is the best part about this job, the autonomy that it gives me.
I’m OCD, like, beyond belief, I just really like cleaning. It’s more of a meditation for me.
