I like this story I read in The New York Times. Five house cleaning Mexican women decided there had to be a better way to earn a living. Due to their determination to enhance their life and their creativity they started their own Apple Eco-Friendly Cleaning cooperative.
From daily waiting on Brooklyn Street corner waiting to land couple of hours jobs cleaning houses to a weekly meeting brainstorming, reviewing their finances and progress.
Their creativity is due to advertising on recycled paper and make their own cleaning products, from ingredients like lemon juice, glycerin, borax and fruit oils.
When we say we’re from a company with a business card, they treat you differently from the time you arrive, I feel very good, very happy and I have very high self-esteem. [source]
