What takeaways did you gain from serving as a Marine?
I have many takeaways from serving in the Marines for 14 years. Leadership, problem-solving, people skills, mission accomplishment, and attention to detail are probably the biggest takeaways, along with being flexible and ability to adapt to any situation.
Why do you think it’s important to hire veterans?
Veterans have a unique perspective on life and have many attributes such as leadership, problem-solving skills, and attention to details. They work hard, focus on getting the job done, and are willing to go the extra mile to take care of customers.
What are some of the challenges a vet might face when first coming home after serving?
There are lots of challenges. Finding employment and a support network of like-minded or similarly experienced people is tough, as well as figuring out how to navigate the differences between military and civilian life.
What are some challenges you have come up against when starting your Window Genie branch?
Educating customers that window cleaning is a wonderful service that should be done on a regular basis and is a valuable part of their home maintenance plan.
What interests you most about this industry?
The concepts are simple to understand; yet there are so many things to learn. Window cleaning is about patience and details, as well as delivering great customer service, and we do all of those things well.
What are some future goals you have set for yourself?
I want to grow the business in a smart way, and become the number one source for window cleaning in the greater Cincinnati area. I also want to expand north, and continue providing great career opportunities for veterans while serving in the community.
