Michelle started as a solo cleaner and worked up to starting Sparkling Homes after almost 20 years of cleaning alone. She knew there had to be a better way to make money without killing her body every day. She was maxed out on her time since she was cleaning all day and serving at Buffalo Wild Wings all night.
Michelle was averaging about 3-4 hours of sleep a night and hated to take time off of work because it meant she wouldn't make money. Michelle added going to school to the mix and became an EMT and was working her way to get a Masters in Science for Physician's Assistant degree when her aunt passed away of colon cancer.
Michelle and her boyfriend Jake travelled all over the US that year in remembrance of her aunt, coming home when they needed to make more money.
On their last trip, they decided they were both going to open businesses to gain freedom and continue to make money even when they weren't working. This is how Sparkling Homes came to be. (Jake went on to open a music school and just opened his second one this month!)
