In this episode of ScaleUp Radio, we’ll be hearing from Eddie Perks of Supreme Exterior Clean.
Supreme Exterior Clean does what it says on the tin, really - cleaning the exteriors of buildings, but this wasn’t Eddie’s first business…
As you’ll hear, he’d already built up a successful business which he left; and it’s this addition to the story that makes Eddie’s scale up journey so fascinating.
Normally, of course, we talk about the business that our guest is currently involved with, but I wanted to go back with Eddie and talk about the previous business because I think that the story of that is just as useful as the lessons and challenges he’s faced with Supreme Exterior Clean.
As always, we covered quite a bit of ground in our conversation, including:
- Don’t just keep educating yourself. Extend that to your staff, and to your entire industry if necessary
- Develop a robust process for assessing new staff, and also the mobility of existing staff. Basically, making sure that the right people are doing the right thing.
- The importance of investing your money wisely, rather than spending it on things that some potential clients could be put off by. Not just clients, but potential buyers too, if you’re scaling up your business towards an exit.
Eddie’s story is one of the most valuable that we’ve had on ScaleUp Radio. It really is worth a few minutes of your time.
