3 Lessons for Business Success – Jonathan Barnett Featured on TheSelfEmployed.com

How does a business go from bare bones to an industry leader? That’s the big question Jonathan Barnett, president and CEO of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, answers today in his article, “From a Shoestring Startup to a Booming Business.”

In this great piece, Jonathan shares three life lessons that have helped make him a better entrepreneur and, consequently, helped make his company grow.

“There’s one thing that kills a lot of great ideas – the people who have them. . . . Because of [their] emotional and mental red lights,” says Mr. Barnett when talking about the importance of taking action, “I’ve always operated Oxi Fresh like we have a green light. My company pushes forward, grows, adds new tools and services, and we only stop when we must. Then, once we figure out what to do about that red light – a tangible barrier, by the way, and not an imagined one – then off we go again.”

The article was featured on TheSelfEmployed.com, an online source of information, tools, and advice for entrepreneurs founded by Steve Strauss of the USA Today.

“I was really honored to be able to share what I’ve learned on such a fantastic site,” said Mr. Barnett, “I really hope it helps entrepreneurs out there looking to start their own company. I admit that the lessons I talk about aren’t easy to implement, but they are vital to success.”

Among the topics Jonathan discusses is the importance of not letting doubt freeze you up, why he thinks the word “Opportunity” is misunderstood and is leading entrepreneurs astray, and the importance of personal “mind control.”

Great product and process. Amazing realible technicians. Jack was a pleasure to work with. He executed it effectively, listened to our requests and answered our questions. JC. - 02/16/2019

Access to the carpet and upholstery that was being cleaned was through the kitchen/breakfast room, which has hardwood floors. After the crew left, I had to scrub down the hardwood because of all of the footprints and water splashes. The footprints could have been avoided (I think!) by wearing those disposable cloth booties over the shoes - which is what your competitors do. The splashes, though, just require vigilance in cleaning up afterwards.The hardwood turned out to be OK, but I don't know what would have happened to the finish if I hadn't been able to clean everything up right away.Also - I didn't realize that upholstery with type 'S' fabric cannot be professionally cleaned. It's rather disappointing that a business that offers cleaning services can't clean the majority of the upholstery that I apparently have in my living room.The two technicians, Austin and Fritz, were very nice and completed the job very quickly.
