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.”

Eric was tremendous. Explained everything he was going to do to my carpets. I asked many questions which he answered. Eco friendly products. Carpets dried qyickky due to using less water. My carpets came out very clean, and Eric keep asking me wheather anything needed to ve done again. Highly recommend. AW. - Anaheim, CA - 09/18/2019

When I called to ask how the cleaning was done I was told that there was a spray and then they scrub and then a power suction picks up after they scrub. But only have of that is true. No suction was used and was told carpet would dry in a hour. That took all day. After tech cleaned carpet I was dump found on how the guy explaind the method to me after I had asked why he wasn't sucking any thing up. What u could do is send a real carpet cleaner to my house to stem clean my carpet.. how is that u pay to have your carpet cleaned. But it's up to u to finish when u vacuum.. or give back my money.
