Gosia Baran started Helping Hands Cleaning Services when she was laid off from her law firm post-9/11. Since she’d been perpetually dissatisfied with the cleaning services she’d employed, and she had a six month old son to support, she decided to start her own cleaning service. She started out as the cleaner, then was forced to hire someone when she became pregnant again. Now 15 years later, she has a staff of 32 and is expanding from residential into commercial cleaning as well.

Gosia chats with Clate and Scott about the tough early years of starting a business, finding a balance with work and family, and how she’s worked through discouragement in tough times.

Gosia is a member of Elite Forum and a Stage 5 business owner. Want to know what stage of small business success you’re in? Listen to episode 38 where Clate and Scott take you through the stages and what they mean.

Gosia grew her business heavily on referrals. Check out our ebook, “Referential Treatment” for how to ask for referrals to grow your business.
