Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Avery.
Hi Ashley, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I lost my job last year during the peak of covid. I had just had my during that time period I did a lot of gig work to make ends meet. During that time period, I remembered that I had done commercial cleaning a few years back and wondered how easy it was to do residential clients. I decided to bet on myself and offer carpet cleaning and residential cleaning to family and friends to get my feet wet and see where my experience was. Word quickly spread and I was encouraged to start my own business and from there it took off.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has been a bit bumpy. Finding the customers thru advertising is easy, servicing customers is easy, but getting out of your own way is hard. You have to ignore that voice that tells you to get a regular 9-5, you have to quiet your fears, and you have to learn to take the good with the bad and remember every day is a new day with new opportunities.
We’ve been impressed with Connecting The Dots Services, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a residential/commercial cleaning company that also offers carpet cleaning, furniture assembly, and sanitization. I am getting known for my very low moisture carpet cleaning methods that not only clean the carpet but cut the drying time considerably. We are set apart from other companies because we can help a customer with their whole home. We handle move-in/move-out cleaning, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly cleaning to help customers focus on their families
If we knew you growing up, how would we have described you?
I was always the kid that everyone knew but I was honestly very shy unless you knew me. My friends always knew I was going to start my own business one day. They use to call me “little diddy” because I wanted to be just like Diddy and his businesses. Between him and Jay-s, I studied all of their business moves and anything they did in the entertainment business. I was a hustler from a young age. I was the young girl that cut grass in the neighborhood, i shoveled the snow, I sold candy at school. I did whatever it was to keep money in my pocket and used that money to fund my next idea. I got so go at a young age I even hired friends and family to help out at certain times.
