How to Run Your Maid Service from Anywhere

January 23, 2020 in Automation, Software, Systems & Automation

Have you ever daydreamed about what it might look like to run your business and work from anywhere?

What if it’s not as impossible as you think?

ZenMaid CEO Amar Ghose sat down with Chris Schwab to talk about how to create a maid service business that can effectively manage itself.

Chris is the CEO of two successful companies: Inova Local and ThinkMaids.

A Fully Remote Maid Service

Chris runs both of these businesses completely remotely, and works only a couple of hours a week.

He splits his time between London and Japan, while his maid service effectively runs itself back in Washington, DC.

Chris sat down to tell us some of the secrets to how he created his dream life, while building a successful maid service in only an hour each week.

As you might expect, this can only be achieved by paying super close attention to the systems and processes that continue to keep his business running and growing.

You may not know this, but Amar Ghose travels the world full time with his wife (Fran, who is Head of Marketing) while he runs ZenMaid.

In fact – the entire ZenMaid team works remotely, and several other staff members also travel full time.

Systems and processes are key to any successful business, and maid services are no exception.

If you want to grow your business and not work yourself into the ground, systems and automation are your new best friends!

This interview was recorded live in London in December 2018. We hope you enjoy this chat as much as we did!
