Episode 17: Ep 17: How to de-gunk your home/space in order to help de-gunk your life in a simple and manageable way with Melissa Maker
This week, Shannon chats with Melissa Maker, who is an accidental cleaning expert - because she hates to clean! In 2006 at age 24, she launched Clean My Space, a cleaning service in her hometown of Toronto, Canada, to help out people just like her. In 2011, she decided to create digital content to help drive bookings by launching the Clean My Space YouTube channel. Since then, the channel has amassed over 200 million video views and over 1.7 million subscribers along with a healthy Instagram following and busy website. She also founded a microfiber cleaning tools company in 2016, called Maker's Clean. While Melissa has delivered her expert advice on cleaning products, tools, and DIY substitutes for over ten years, she wasn’t always a cleaning pro and understands that people are looking for practical, time-saving solutions to everyday problems.
How Melissa became an “accidental cleaning expert” with over 200 million views and 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube, as well as owns a cleaning company called “Clean my Space.”
