House cleaning as a side business

As much as I would like to be able to be a dancer full time, there’s not that much scope for paid work in the field. It’s definitely something I do more for the love of it. So what does a dancer do to pay the household bills and survive?

Well I’ve recently opened a house cleaning business – I was inspired by my friend Rhonda who has a house cleaning business in Brisbane Australia and does quite well working for herself. I’m in the midst of setting up a website for my own business and will post it when it’s done.

Cleaning houses is not a glamorous small business, but it’s alot better than some would think. I get to be my own boss, and the actual work isn’t too difficult. I do things like vacuuming, mopping, cleaning bathrooms and dusting like the cleaning services listed here .

So as I said, one of the best things is being my own boss. Sure, having a small business comes with it’s hassles, the main one being getting set up with enough houses to clean on a regular basis, but I try to be picky to only work with the clients I want to. So what do I look for in a cleaning client? Really just someone who treats me with respect, pays on time and doesn’t have any ridiculous cleaning standards.

What do I mean by ridiculous cleaning standards? Well, while I do pride myself on paying great attention to detail and taking pride in my work, things like scrubbing the grout in tiles I think is an over the top ask. Sure, you might have this done once a year or so, expecting it be included with ‘mopping’ is over the top to me. You’d be paying for a couple of hours of cleaning just for that bit of work! Also expecting to have a 5 bedroom 2 bathroom house cleaned in 2 hours is just not going to happen!

Yes I have actually been asked these things by prospective cleaning clients, as you could guess, I didn’t end up working for them. So in a sense another great benefit is I get to choose the cleaning work I do. If I worked for someone else and had a boss, I wouldn’t get to ‘say no’ to things that I don’t want to do, I’d have to do them with a smile on my face and pretend it’s fine.

So there you go, that’s what a dancer does to pay the bills – a small home cleaning business. You’d be amazed at some of the other occupations some of my dancing friends have, they provide all sorts of services and businesses, some alot more interesting than what I do!

Wedding reception Morris style

People often look for interesting and unusual things to do at their wedding. Whether it be the theme (camo themed wedding anyone?), the location, the make up of the bridal party, the wedding dress, or in this case, the entertainment at the reception. On a side note, if you want a few laughs this afternoon, search for ‘weird wedding themes’,  there are some wacky and wonderful ones out there I tell you!

There will be a post shortly on the-maid-of-honor.com about unique forms of entertainment for a wedding reception. I don’t know how they came up with it, or what else is on the unique list, but one thing they enquired about was morris dancing as entertainment. Now I think it’s great, more Morris the better! It’d work really well with a traditional wedding, or something a bit more quirky too – it’s not a form of entertainment that alot of people are familiar with. Who knows, with the trend of all these choreographed wedding dances becoming famous on Youtube in the past couple of years, maybe we’ll some brave bride’s and grooms doing the style for their first dance as a couple. Could even get the whole bridal party involved in it – now that would stand out and give the guests something to remember.

I wonder if this will spark any work for some Morris sides at some upcoming weddings, I daresay not alot, but you never know!
