Jacque’ Nowak has brought a unique perspective to our current Venture Forth® I class…she okay competing against herself! According to Jacque’, “I have been in the house cleaning business for over 30 years and have been noticing a shift in the way people want to do business. So after reading the book BOLD I was inspired to expand my business nationally, even if that means I disrupt my current business (Maid for You).”
Her story of disruption is one that is familiar across multiple industries. Some examples include the postal service and email, home phone service and mobile, taxi drivers and Uber…and in the house cleaning service industry it’ll be the act of taking out the middle man to make booking a maid service using technology reliable, safe and cost-effective.
