Established in 2007, I was working for an IT firm as an account manager for the last couple of years. I liked what I did, but it became boring and didn’t challenge me on a daily basis. So, I would day dream about starting my own company one day. I worked as a window cleaner when I was younger and thought back to that job often, it was challenging daily because every job was different. I met really cool people both at work and when I would go out on jobs, the homeowners and managers of retail shops, mom and pop locations as well.
I realized that I missed window cleaning and the challenges I would face but most of all, the customers, seeing their face once all their windows were cleaned, priceless. Especially for homeowners, who only had this done every so often.
I thought “Why don’t I start a window cleaning company!?” I did my research like any good geek and after a while I said to myself, “why not, let’s do this!”
This proved to be more challenging than I thought. Starting a business was expensive, time consuming and a struggle to get customers. I wasn’t a marketing major or a business major, I sat in front of a computer all day! Regardless, this is what I wanted to do and I was determined. So I read books and books and more books, all on business, marketing and sales.
Now after all this time, Geek Window Cleaning is number one in Houston and we recently opened new location's in Katy, Cypress and Clear Lake! I have some great employees and great customers. I still like getting out there and cleaning windows from time to time but it’s still hard to run a successful business, let alone 4 locations. Guess it’s time for more books!
I know that if you choose to have your windows cleaned by us you won’t be let down. I look forward to cleaning your windows and seeing your face when were done. If I’m not personally there though please let me know how were doing. If you’re not 100% satisfied we will fix it or you won’t pay.
P.S. The company name is because I am a big geek. Pretty much anything Sci-fi and I wanted my company name to reflect the type of person I am.
