Mature Preneurs Talk with Diana Todd-Banks

Apr 24, 2019

Brian said he was uninspired and lacked motivation within his full-time job at a sporting goods store, and recalled a side business that his father worked years ago cleaning parking lots and decided to turn that idea into his side-hustle. After two months Brian was bringing in enough income with Cleanlots to leave his full-time job behind. 

Brian tells the story of how he began, "My prospects were slim as all I had was a high school diploma and a small savings account. But what I had was the motivation to change my life for the better and a willingness to work for myself." Entrepreneur magazine says parking lot litter cleanup is “a simple, inexpensive and potentially lucrative business to get into, and the market is growing”.

Brian’s $200 investment has grown into a $650,000+ per year business, although that took a few decades.  Brian never dreamt he could turn a litter cleanup business into such an enjoyable lifestyle, but he did, and has perfected the operation down to a science. In fact, later in his career he even wrote a book about how other entrepreneurs can follow in his footsteps and that book is available on Amazon and is called ‘CleanLots America’s Simplest Business.’
