3 Things You Need To Know BEFORE Starting A Business (Pressure Washing)


Welcome back to the Lean and Mean Academy, where we discuss all things related to turning one truck into big profits in the pressure washing industry. Today, we're delving into invaluable advice for those venturing into the world of pressure washing, inspired by a recent comment from a viewer named Alex.

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, I want to extend an invitation to an event that could kickstart your journey to success: Washcon Live, the ultimate pressure washing event hosted at Southeast Soft Wash headquarters. More details on this later, so stick around.

Three Key Pieces of Advice for Newbies

Alex, if you're watching, I've got not one, but three pieces of advice to set you on the right path as you embark on your pressure washing business journey. But first, let's address the elephant in the room: starting a business with a buddy. While it might seem like a great idea, it can quickly turn sour if you both aren't aligned on roles. Remember, synergy between operations and sales is crucial.

Now, onto the advice:

  1. Focus on Income Producing Activity (IPA): In the early stages, your primary metric should be IPA—how many calls you make, how many clients you secure. Forget the fluff and dive headfirst into cold outreach to generate income.

  2. Prioritize Exposure Over Branding: Don't get caught up in branding before you've even established yourself. Focus on exposure in your first year—get out there, knock on doors, and let people know about your services.

  3. Start at High Ticket: Break free from the "broke mentality" and dare to charge what you're worth. High-ticket pricing isn't reserved for industry veterans. Demand excellence from yourself and your work, and clients will be willing to pay a premium.

Conclusion: Take Action, Achieve Success
