Davidson Networking Spotlight: Nicole Fletcher at Nicole’s Cleaning LLC

November 18, 2019

Posted by in Events, News

For Nicole Fletcher, the path to career success included a detour through another field and lots of practice in her home life. Before launching Nicole’s Cleaning LLC, she followed her dream of working with money by studying to be an accountant.


“I realized that I wouldn’t be happy working with money unless it was mine,” said Nicole, noting that the coursework did help her next career. “The classes I took set me up to be able to run the books of my company, I just didn’t know what kind of business I wanted to have.”


The mother of four boys had become an expert in house cleaning, so she decided to utilize her expertise and enter the field. “I liked the idea of setting my own hours, when and where I would work and how much I could make,” Nicole said. “Now, I set the hours and I never have a day off.” She joked, “What a mean boss I have.”


Nicole recently took time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions about her business. Read on to learn more!


What sets you apart from other cleaning services?  My thought is, you are paying me to do a job you could easily do yourself, so I have to do it better than you would do it yourself. My attention to detail, doing what I would expect to be done if I was paying someone to do it and overall pride in my work sets my services apart.


What has been your biggest success to date?  My biggest success was coming to the Davidson Realty Networking Event at Southern Swells. There I met Brenda who would invite me to another networking group called Business Network International (BNI). Since joining BNI, my business has more than tripled. Now for the next success: HIRING!!!



Describe your typical work day.  After the morning wake-up ritual, I look over the day’s demands, coordinate who is going where and set out for the day. Whether it is a house or an office, we get the work done, I do a quality check of the completed job, then move on to the next. At the end of the day its back to the house, update the books, send out invoices, set up the next day’s priorities, then relax with the family.


If you could go back to the beginning, what would you have done differently?  Keep better financial records. Sorting through bank statements and receipts is a nightmare. Also, keeping up with the books daily so it isn’t a weekend job to catch up.


What’s your best advice for someone who wants to start their own business?  Believe in yourself. Seek out advice from other local small business people. Make sure you document everything you do so you can reflect upon what you have done. If something didn’t work, you can see what you did to help make a change. ALWAYS call back a customer.
