Let’s Start with Why
I started my own company so that I would have the freedom to help people the way that I want to help them, which is why, as the owner of Vossome Window Cleaning, I give a percentage of my gross earnings to charity.*
I chose window cleaning because of my expertise in the field. My dad started a window cleaning company when I was a kid and I started working for him as soon as I could hold a squeegee. I am very good at what I do due to over a decade of experience, and because I had a great teacher (thanks, dad!).
If you’re here, you already know the benefits of having your windows cleaned by a pro; you’re likely here to get a feel for the company as a whole before you decide to do business or not. You can always visit the Services page for details on what I do, but in the meantime, allow me to start with why I do what I do.
Keep First Things First
As far back as I can remember, I challenged the “why” behind everything (I couldn’t have been an easy kid to raise!). As an adult, I went into business for myself because I wanted to challenge the idea that a company has to look a certain way or fit a certain mold in order to be successful. I have fun with my business and my clients always hire me back, so I must be doing something right.
I think most companies tend to put their bottom line before people. The thing is, without people, a company couldn’t exist, and so I think they have it backwards.
I want my company to reflect my notion of keeping first things first, and owning Vossome Window Cleaning allows me to prioritize people over anything else; it gives me the freedom to help people the way that I want to help them- both on the job and after it.
I use my expertise in window cleaning to do great work for my clients, and I forward a percentage of my income back into my community in order to help those less fortunate than myself.
My lovely wife does the same with what she brings in; we thoroughly enjoy serving our community by giving a percentage of what we make away, knowing that every dollar is going to bless someone else.
A man under no authority is a dangerous man. I own the business, but I report directly to my God and several mentors in order to maintain a clean spirit and a clear vision that leading my family is the most important work I will ever do.
It is true that this may make it hard to reach me outside of business hours, but it means that my children are getting 100% of their father and my wife 100% of her husband. However, rest assured, valued client, for the next business day has a 100% chance of a return call.
*For legal reasons, I have to state that not Vossome Window Cleaning, nor I, Matt Voss, its owner, claim to be a non-profit organization. Instead, I wish to simply give my word that every month, I give a set percentage of my gross income to organizations that I feel serve noble causes. I would be happy to discuss in further detail in person if you would like!
