Let Software Do the Math for You

If you work in a cleaning service, it is important to know what everything costs when you are making a bid for a job. Not only do you need to worry about the time that you are actually doing the job, the number of people who will be doing the job, and the supplies that you will use in the job, but you will also have to take into consideration the time spent negotiating the contract, the cost of the office space for that time, and what type of profit margin you must have in order to be successful. You should also take into account unexpected costs. Since math is not the strong suit for many entrepreneurs, you may want to use a cleaning bid software to help you make the right bid.

Math and Americans

Math is terribly difficult for most Americans to grasp. This may be because the people who teach math to children do not really like math. Put 45 early childhood educators in a room, 43 of them will tell you how much they dislike math. Even if they are competent teachers and grasp the math concepts well, children will see that dislike for math quickly, and they will show the same disdain. Adults like to think that they are clever and good at hiding their feelings, but the fact of the matter is that children are better at seeing what is on the face, especially the younger ones because they survive by watching what adults look like more than by listening to what adults are saying.

Cleaning Up

Chances are you went into the janitorial business because you are good at it. Unfortunately, running the business is an entirely different animal than actually being able to do the job itself. That may mean that a cleaning bid software may be something that you require, so that you are not bidding yourself out of business. Many new people to a business will just think that it is great to get the job, but if you do the job for too little, you will not have a business.
