Solo Cleaning School is a hands-on, strategic journey to owning a profitable solo house cleaning business. Ken Carfagno is an expert on the topic and has personally run a solo cleaning business for 14 years.
He is the architect of the ISO Model and has used it to build and optimize his own solo cleaning company to over $50,000 profit on only 2 cleaning days per week. In a world where everyone wants to scale, Ken chose to keep his cleaning business small and highly efficient so he could maximize his income and time with his family. Ken sold this company for close to six figures in 2018, so his family could fulfill a dream to return to their hometown near Philadelphia.
Ken owns a new solo cleaning company now and leads the Solo Cleaning School, which includes this podcast and premium community for current and future solo cleaners to win for their families!
