Meet Your Manager: Part II

Gooo0o0ood afternoon, beautiful family, friends and clients!

So, you all had the pleasure of reading all about Laura earlier this week, and so we thought it’d be a good idea to also tell you a little bit about myself!

Obviously, you all know that my name is Holly – or as I always say, your friendly neighborhood cleaning lady. I’d call myself your friendly neighborhood cleaning business owner, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it. My duties within this lovely business include writing and editing all blog posts and post submissions by all colleagues and readers, working on this beaaaautiful website you see before you, keeping track of the books, updating our social media handles, attending and sending out estimates, and, of course, servicing YOU! Blogging, marketing, copywriting and designing websites are just a few of my passions. I graduated from Hofstra University with my bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2013 (ugh, I’m old) and immediately know that I wanted to be an engager. I wanted to post on social media, talk to people and blog my life away. Unfortunately, finding a job in journalism is extremely difficult because most writing jobs are on a freelance basis. I worked a few full-time gigs in cramped corporate offices and, let me tell you guys, I absolutely HATED sitting on my butt for 8+ hours a day. My health started to decline in so many ways, and I knew I needed some kind of a change. I reached out to Laura, who hooked me up with an awesome cleaning business owner. She owns a successful business and I was totally inspired by her. I enjoyed the flexible hours and, since I was her assistant, I enjoyed obtaining that managerial experience. Unfortunately, on my end, I still didn’t feel totally fulfilled. I never liked working under people and I knew that I had a lot of great ideas, so I knew that my calling was to work for myself. After many conversations with Laura, we decided to venture off on our own, thus establishing the birth of Chores & More.

We both knew that we wanted to do more than just clean houses. We wanted to work with pets and we wanted to put ourselves ahead of the competition. That’s why we decided to offer a wide range of services – residential and commercial cleaning, pet care, housekeeping, outdoor maintenance and more. But I’m not really here to talk about the business. I want you guys to know me as a person, because I think finding someone you can really trust to work for you is SO important for success on your end and on my end. When I’m not working on this business, you can often find me blogging on my feel-good lifestyle blog, Blogging Holly, or working on our other business ventures, spending time with my amazing boyfriend (and one of Chores and More’s biggest investors), or cuddling with my dog and my cat. My dog, Sage, is a 45-pound Goldendoodle, and my Ebony is a black cat; she’s a fat black beauty with a ton of nicknames, like Nini Panini, Nina, Negrita Gordita and Widdle Ninu. Other passions of mine include beauty and fashion, all things DIY, and interior design.

One of my biggest goals in life is to inspire others. I was diagnosed with PCOS on 2015 and it has affected me in so many ways, which is why I often blog about the subject and am a huge advocate for PCOS awareness. I know that life can seriously suck sometimes, and I want to help people get through it. I love animals so much and am extremely passionate about helping them, too. I want this business to inspire others to strive for success and never give up. I always tell people that, today, I am a cleaning lady. In five years, I will be part-owner of a multinational home- and office-care conglomerate. Only time will tell, but I have you guys to thank for the success we’ve achieved thus far. Without your love and support, Chores & More would not be steadily growing and on its way to much bigger things. So, with all of that said, thank YOU for believing in me – for believing in us – we look forward to servicing you guys now and in the future!

♥ - Holly Anne
