About Our Guest

John was introduced to the carpet cleaning business and bad customer service at the age of 13 when the company that cleaned his mother’s carpet would not re-clean the carpet after the spots quickly reappeared. Later, when John was helping a friend who was a carpet cleaner, he decided he could build a successful carpet cleaning business himself, and also make sure to treat his customers right, the way he thought his mother should have been treated.

What Our Guest Talked About

Later, John found that many of his clients were trading their carpets for hardwood floors because spots in the carpets seemed to always come back, ruining the fibers, and the customers just traded in their soiled carpets for something different instead of working to clear the spots once and for all.

When John realized that in life, people traded in bad relationships and bad experiences but like spots in carpets, the issues kept reappearing, he decided he found his purpose in life: designing a formula for people to get the bad spots out of their lives for good.

Eventually, in 2016, John wrote a book, “Stop Spot Cleaning Your Life: A Guide to Restoring Your Life To Radical, Clean Happiness in a World That Keeps You Chasing it.” John now speaks about his passion all over the country and has been a featured guest on all of the major networks.

Please download and listen to the entire episode to hear John’s inspiring story about how he changed his life for the better and helps others to do the same, all while running his successful carpet and home care business.
