Ted Proctor Creates His Own Freedom with Two Maids & A Mop Franchise

Former Salesman Uses Retirement Funds to Finance Business Purchase

Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) January 30, 2015 - Ted Proctor has always craved freedom - the liberty to make his own decisions, create his own schedule, and ultimately, control his own destiny. But after working in medical and dental sales for 15 years, he still didn't have the independence he desired, so he took matters into his own hands. Proctor left his day job and purchased a Two Maids & A Mop franchise.

"I'm excited to bring 'a cleaning service worth talking about' to my home town," he said. "I want to give customers what I would [wish for] in such a service."

Two Maids & A Mop provides a variety of cleaning packages for customers in the Fort Worth area, from regularly scheduled housekeeping services to one-time deep cleans to their customized Design with Time bundles. Two Maids Fort Worth is also affiliated with a local nonprofit that donates house cleaning services to women fighting cancer.

To finance the purchase of his business, Proctor's franchise consultant recommended Guidant Financial, a small business financing firm that specializes in Rollovers for Business Start-ups (ROBS). In a process Proctor described as "informative and helpful," Guidant helped him invest funds from his 401(k) into his franchise without triggering a tax penalty, a benefit that allowed him to start his business free of debt.

As an entrepreneur, Proctor is reveling in his newfound freedom and enjoying the pride that comes with business ownership. In his spare time, he can be found coaching his daughters' soccer teams and playing sports himself.

Two Maids of Fort Worth will open for business on Monday, Feb. 2. To schedule an appointment or get a free quote, call 817-284-0030, email fortworth@ineedamaid.com or visit twomaidsfortworth.com.
