Melissa Maker: Clean My Space
If you have ever thought, “I should do YouTube videos for my business.” Than this is the show for you. Melissa had just started a cleaning business (after working in a bank…BORING!), and thought that YouTube videos would be a good way to market her business. In fact, here is her very first video she produced:
The editing is bad, the jokes are worse, and the editing…wow!! How did she ever make a go at this video thing? Well, she kept going, she kept improving, and now, she produces videos like this:
Melissa has made a name for herself in the cleaning business, and she started this business while hating to clean. Now, she has a great business that employs about 20 employees, and provides a great income for her and her husband Chad. Starting to market her cleaning business, let to a second small business, she now speaks, and receives ad revenue from her website and YouTube videos.
In our interview with Melissa, we talk about how she started her small business, what she loves about being an entrepreneur, and so much more. Clean my space now has an international presence, and Melissa shared all about it. She not only shares what it was like to start a service based business, but also how to make money on YouTube, what the videos have led to, and how she splits her time in her business.

Hey! Thanks for joining us today. I’m Nick.
And of course, I’m Johnny John.
[Laughs] You’re listening to “Small Business Naked”.
I will say something different. So, it throws Nick off every time.
He always has to just mess with me. I don’t understand this. But this is what I have to deal with him on a daily basis, guys. But we have a great show today. We’ve got Melissa Maker from “Clean My Space”.
A.k.a. Mrs. Clean. I know the expert is an overused term, but she’s really an expert on cleaning.
She’s also from Canadia eh.
She’s going to share with us two of her business stories. She has two because she’s actually owned the service business. She has a media company. What a great insight she has on both. So, I think you’re going to find them both are really valuable.
Yes. You’re going to learn, not only about starting a business, but how to market your business and what marketing potentially could do for you. It’s not only grown her service business. But it’s also helped her create a secondary business, one that, I think, she says in an interview, is more profitable than her actual business.
She’s also going to tell us how we can make videos if we’re interested, and how they work, and do they work, and all those types of things. So, take a listen. You’re going to like this.
Beer, wine, or a cocktail.
I don’t drink.
