If there’s one question I get asked more than any other, it is definitely: Are you really this happy all the time? Yes, I really am! And here’s why: I’m incredibly fortunate to love what I do and the remarkable people I have the pleasure of doing it with.
Now, I’m not going to lie. The world of dry cleaning and residential and commercial cleaning services may not be the most glamorous. But my team – they radiate with class and charisma. And that’s what matters. Regardless of the industry, a business is ultimately about the people who breathe life into it. And the Sudsies and Rugsies teams know that genuine happiness comes from within and is contagious. And what could be more splendid than that?
When I first started Sudsies and Rugsies, I knew I wanted to build a team with a passion for helping others. So I dedicated significant time to seeking people who shared my vision and positive attitude. Now, we’re bound together by integrity, ambition, and a shared work ethic. That makes it easy and enjoyable to work with one another. Together, we’ve built more than just a thriving business. We’ve created a culture, a village, where we thrive on helping each other and our clients. It may be most evident when one of us is having an off day, and we all have them. But on those days, the smiles and support from fellow team members restore the harmony and positivity we all treasure.
There’s something else that also brings me immense joy – a sense of purpose. Surrounding myself with great people means providing others opportunities to strive for greatness. I enjoy helping others by creating jobs and ensuring employees are presented with opportunities to learn, grow, and be empowered to find their ideal role. Whether offering continuing-education seminars, providing guidance through leadership, or granting our team the freedom to unleash their creativity in crafting unforgettable experiences for our clients – I empower people to discover their highest potential.
There you have it: my secret to unwavering happiness. Yes, it must first come from within. But the true sustenance of profound satisfaction lies in helping others find their own pleasure. And I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that we can jumpstart our journey towards happiness with a simple yet powerful act: a smile!
