Rebecca Keens - Great Companies Women Entrepreneur Award Winner 2020
Durham Domestic Cleaning
Domestic and Commercial Cleaning
We are a domestic and commercial cleaning company based in the North East of England. We pride ourselves on our fair prices and highly professional service.
What challenges have you overcome to reach where you are now
Since we started we have faced challenged getting a steady stream of work and matching that to the amount of staff we employ, fighting with the whole chicken and egg problem. Recently we were forced to change our name due to a trade mark dispute which caused no end of stress, but we kept going and are stronger than ever. On a personal level, I have suffered with depression and anxiety for years, coupled with my dyslexia it was always difficult to find and maintain employment, so I set out on my own and now have a successful business that is going from strength to strength.
What message you want to give for other aspiring women entrepreneurs
Keep on going. When things are bad and it looks like there's no way out, don't give up as just beyond that will be a game changing event. They say it's always darkest before the dawn and that is certainly true in business.
To what do you attribute your success
My own personal tenacity and belief in my goals, as well as fantastic support within by business and around. Being part of a successful business network has really helped my business grow.
