January 2020

 A New Year. A New Decade.

At this point in the month I am sure you have written down your goals for the year. The things you aim to accomplish, how you are going to accomplish them, and why these are your goals. All of these things are CRUCIAL to the start of a new year. They are the things that you do to ensure that you start the year on the right foot.

So I invite you to think about the goals you have set for yourself.

Think about what you wrote down or what you told people your resolution is.

We are thirteen days in.. how have you held up so far?

Maybe you have a thirteen-day streak of absolutely killing it or maybe you’ve missed a few days!

Either way, you’re doing great! Just by SETTING those goals you are acknowledging the things in your life that you want to achieve. This is the biggest step, being aware of what you want out of your life.

If the start of a new decade has reminded us of anything, it is that life is short. Spend your time doing the things that you WANT to do. That doesn’t mean give up on your responsibilities, instead, find a way to mesh the things that empty your gas tank with things that fuel it.

When you are able to be confident and happy in everything that you do you will begin to see serious changes in your life. Things that felt like chores will become fun tasks and the things you looked forward to will be 10x greater.

Nobody is stopping you from accomplishing those 2020 goals except yourself. The hardest part is writing them down. You’ve already written them down! Now CRUSH THEM!

Things that will help you accomplish your goals in 2020:

  • Create an accountability chart!
    • I found this website that sends you a whole bunch of free habit tracker checklists! I personally have found this to be very helpful because it is a way for me to visually view what I want to accomplish every day.
  • Buddy system!
    • When you share your goals with someone else you can help to hold each other accountable.
  • Plan meals ahead of time!
    • This may seem like a simple one, but knowing what you are going to eat at the end of a long day is HUGE! Not only does it save time and a headache, but it can also help you save money! You are more likely to go out to eat if you can’t think of what you want to make.
  • Put clean the house on our chore list!
    • Take cleaning the house off of your to-do list. Spend more time crushing all those goals you’ve set while you spend time in a clean fresh home. If you aren’t already on our client list? Fill out your quote request here.
  • Reflect at the end of each week!
    • This is huge! Maybe you had an awesome week or a not so great one. Either way, taking the time to think about what made things work or not work will help you in the long run. Here are some prompts I personally like to answer:
      • I feel…
      • I learned…
      • I celebrate…
      • What do I want to do the same or differently next week…
We at Absolutely Clean are excited for you to crush your goals this year and decade! We hope that we can be apart of helping you do just that!

2017  – what . a . year!!

It has been a true empty nest for me.  Our social media peep aka my daughter Grace – has been away at a Semester at Sea … traveling the world on a ship while earning 13 intense credit hours in between ports.  Hawaii, India, Ghana, Vietnam, China, Japan, South Africa, Germany and many countries in between .. she’s now in Poland backpacking through Europe.  My husband and I will meet her in Italy in less than two weeks.  I am so excited to see the woman she has become.  There is nothing more empowering than traveling and expanding your mind with our peoples cultures.  Our differences bring us together when we let it. What have I learned this year with all adult children finally and completely out of the nest?

1.This mamma bear needs her cleaning service more than ever!

Let’s face it .. It wasn’t the kids…

2. Time for more than the mom taxi

  ONE of the perks of children leaving the nest is the time we now have to devote to our own passions.  I tell mama’s all the time .. don’t get so lost in your children that you forget who YOU are.  We  need to take care of our selves as well as our families.  I’m thrilled that our service allows other’s to have the same flexibility that I built for myself.. working around our kids schedules while still providing. IT has been a dream come true.

3.  I love to travel

My other two children are on opposite sides of the US.  I have one in Oregon and one in Virginia.   We are able to visit them as well as my family in Nebraska.

4.  I need to start exercising!  oye…

It’s crazy how much MORE time I have yet I have devoted all of my energy to everything BUT exercise.  I used to be a runner… i’m struggling to walk around the block!  Who has that secret???

5. The last 30 years of my life have been a joy

17 of those years has been as an owner of this company … it was designed for family.  MY family .. and has been an extension for the same for others.   My staff are my #1 clients and it’s THAT aspect that allows us to bring some amazing people into our lives to take care of our homes.   I’ve had the opportunity to begin public speaking and I love sharing my story and inspiring others.

6.  My staff are more than .. well .. staff.

This is my second family so it hurts when some leave us and it’s joyful when we welcome new staff in.    We lost Kristine to cancer this year and it’s left a hole for me as I devoted a lot of time to helping her.  I’ve switched that energy to our non profit .. and our mission to clean for more families who have cancer for free.  I’ll be presenting an opportunity for our clients and friends to help us with this mission this year in her memory. She is the 2017 Ambassador of Time In a Bottle this year . so stay tuned.. for little bits and pieces into the heart that is behind Absolutely Clean.

We can’t do it without ALL of you.

2015 Wrap Up!

A Note From Stephanie

Tomorrow our company officially wraps up 2015. We do this with our annual employee appreciation dinner. Awards are given , times are celebrated. Your generous gifts at Christmas are drawn for and there is so much excitement that surrounds that. We thank you for an amazing year. It was our best yet and we are striving for an even better one.

This year we were able to help more clients through Time In a Bottle and our client list almost doubled. Our staff was the MOST consistent it has been in years. This tells us we are doing a better job with our hires and we work hard here.. It’s a tough job market and we are PICKY. As I say that, we also have a couple out on medical leave. Mandy is having surgery today on both hands due to diabetes complications and Kristine begins Chemo next week for the fight of her life. We ask for your prayers.

We also ask for your continued patience as we aim to give you the consistency you have been lacking as we transition new staff and rearrange teams for our staff that are on leave. We also have many that are being promoted with our growth! Such an exciting time.

This isn’t a career choice for many, for some .. Yes. I find the mind and body typically handles this job for about one year if they truly are not a lover of all things clean. If it’s in their nature? We are the company to work for! We have many that are at a year and as always, we are preparing for our future and for your continued Absolutely Clean home.

Molly will be transitioning to our Quality Assurance manager. Her job will be to make sure our staff are all trained to give you the same clean, each and every time. Communication is key here for all of us. Thank you for the feedback you give us. We try hard to make sure we listen and follow through. Molly has been with us for 3 years.

Toni will be partnering with Molly from the office side. She communicates with our teams and dispatches them daily. She also visits with you, our client and makes sure our teams are up to date on your desires. She’s a great addition to our teams.

Julie is transitioning to solely handling our admin… Accounts payable, receive able and payroll! She also handles our new client acquisitions and making sure our team managers are working to achieve a rock star day. You won’t feel much difference here, this is mostly an internal change.

  Elaine is back with us and we are very pleased. She is transitioning to our commercial supervisor and helps during the day with our residential teams as we make the adjustment.

As the owner of this company, I am quite proud of our reputation and the hard work we have put into this community for almost 16 years. Thank you for your continued support and we promise to give you our all in 2016. I take my commitment to the 25+ employees very seriously and our mission to give you an Absolutely Clean home while fostering service to others… To heart. We are #morethanmaids
