There is no better business than a pool service business to help bring in family members, especially your kids. Since this can be a home-based business, they can work with the family and gain an understanding of how business is managed and operated. Eventually, they can assist with pool cleaning, pool openings and closings. It is then an easy road to running your own route and understanding how to deal with customers while providing quality service. The next step is managing employees and making sure that their service meets your high customer service expectations.
From a family point of view, it allows you to grow the business easily and provide everyone with their own piece of the action. If you decide to leave your business, you can then leave the business within the family, providing them with valuable assets and significant brand value.
If you decide to sell the business, you could sell it to family members who will treat it with the respect it deserves. Another avenue is to sell the business to an existing employee who understands the value and can assist in a smooth transition. By providing employees and family members with growing stakes within the company, you can ensure strong retention and continued growth.
