Mother of Four Finds Happiness Owning Cleaning Business

Leaves Financial Industry for The Maids Franchise

Concord, N.C. (PRWEB) April 24, 2014 - Kimberly Bartnik was in the financial industry for 25 years before she decided that enough was enough.

"I felt like all of my efforts were being utilized for the benefit of the CEO," said Bartnik. "I really wanted to be able to own my business."

In her previous career, she had a variety of positions: Quality Manager, Training Manager, Call Center Director, Training Consultant, and Process Improvement Manager. This versatility equipped her with the skills she needed to run her own business.

She chose to purchase a residential cleaning business, The Maids, and the Vice President of Franchise Development there recommended the services of Guidant Financial, which helped her roll retirement funds to reach the desired capital needed to start her franchise.

"[Working with Guidant was] extremely easy," said Bartnik. I was able to get step-by-step instructions for how to use my retirement [funds] for startup purposes."

Now, she enjoys being her own boss, and spending time with her four children. She also likes to read, crochet and sail in her spare time.

Bartnik's enthusiasm for her new role is infectious, "I would encourage anyone who has a business background and would like to be the owner of a small business to do so. You only live once!"

The Maids of Concord are located at 306 Church St N in Concord. To request an estimate, call (704) 793-1982 or email
