Rohan Gilkes on Extra Paycheck

Rohan Gilkes runs many businesses but today we’ll be concentrating on his (probably) most lucrative business yet: the Maids in Black.

Rohan launched Maids in Black just a little over 3 years ago and in 2014 alone his new ventured has earned over $2,000,000. Yep, you read it correctly: $2 Millions dollars. Year 2015 is looking even more promising for this young and successful company. I know that “housekeeping” doesn’t sound like a very fun business but it’s obviously a very profitable one! In today’s episode of Extra Paycheck Podcast I got the chance to interview the owner and founder of this company. Rohan didn’t only reveal the fact that he doesn’t actually do any cleaning himself but he also explained every single detail of how YOU can start a very similar business today! Nothing is held back, nothing’s left unclear – just pure value information.


In today’s episode you will learn:

  • How to discover which local industries can be profitable
  • How to start an online cleaning (or any other) service for local clients
  • How to find and hire your work force
  • How to market locally and find your first clients
  • How to deal with unpredictable issues
  • How to scale your small business nationally
  • … and a lot more!
