Shownotes

It all started with a used pressure washer and a 1995 work van. That’s how Jason Geiman and his wife, Jodi, started a pressure washing business back in 2012. Nearly doubling their business in the first year, additional family members were brought on to help with the growth. The business continued to see incredible success and outside employees were added as well.

In just 6 years they had expanded to four crews and nearly $1M in gross revenue, and the decision was made to sell the business in 2018.

Following the sale, as Jason wondered what to do with his new-found free time, he realized what he always wanted to do was to help people. It had led him to be a rescue diver, then a firefighter, and now, it has led him here. He is taking the lessons learned from his incredible 6 years running a pressure washing business into a resource for homeowners or for those starting, or struggling, to have their own exterior cleaning business.
