The Christmas Parade
Assume that you work for Two Maids & A Mop. You've just finished a long day of housecleaning and you're beat. Now what if I told you that you're day isn't over yet? You've still got another 5-6 hours of work left to complete. To make matters worse, you've got to perform that work in near freezing conditions. And one more thing, I'm not going to pay you for it. You're going to do the work for free.
As crazy as all that sounds, it happened. But there's one thing I'm leaving out. I didn't tell anybody to do it. They volunteered. That's right. Five of our employees in Fort Walton Beach volunteered to take part in this year's Christmas parade. Better yet, it was their idea.
Thank you Angelique, Sandy, April, Lori, and Elicia. Also a big thank you goes out Sandy's family for providing so much help. You all have not only made me proud, but you've proven yet again that we're not just another cleaning company.
Just three years ago, I was scared to death that my employees were going to kill my dream. Today, my employees are the only reason my dream is still alive.
