After leaving a job of 15 years with nothing else lined up and a mortgage to pay, I decided it was time to tackle the disgusting job, that I had been putting off for literally years, of cleaning out my car. It took about 3 hours before I was satisfied with the job I had done and as I was driving my Dodge Journey (which in my head felt like a Lincoln Navigator), I felt SO DANG GOOD, like I had just finally done something good for myself. Until this time, I was working full-time and a full-time Mom to my then 4-year-old daughter. I began to wonder if there were other busy Moms out there that I could give this feeling too. I posted in a local Moms group on Facebook and 202 comments my summer was booked solid! The next day, I showed up to my first client’s house to clean her Mazda 3 with my upright vacuum from home.
From there I knew I needed to explore this as a business and what would I call my business? One lovely afternoon, as I watched my daughter playing, I noticed that she had on a pale pink shirt with bright gold letters that read “BUILDING MY EMPIRE”. And, on that day, Empire Details was born!
