It All Started As A Sideline

By   December 14, 2015

Having a sideline business is awesome. Years ago when my wife was still a staff working full time in a certain skin care clinic located at a famous mall in Manila, she used to pull out their bed sheets, pillow cases and cloth cover of chairs. She takes it to our home and washed it there.

Sideline business

I oftentimes pick her up at her workplace because the goods are too heavy for her. We don’t have our own vehicle so we commute. She was charging PHP150 -PHP200 per batch of laundry to their clinic with approval of her boss, of course. My wife does it several times a month.

It’s a small amount and it can only accumulate to a mere thousand pesos monthly. This income was used to pay bills (and for our dates). My wife does it several times a month. Level up. Because of good laundry service rendered, she was offered to do laundry for the company’s other two branches.

Without a doubt, my wife grabbed it. Then she offered her laundry service to one of their clinic’s regular costumer, a dentist. Yes, she got it.

It is all going well

Suddenly, problem arises… a big one! It was late 2013 when my wife told me that their branch will be closing in a few months due to decision of their company’s management. Her sideline is at risk. All other staffs were offered to transfer in other branch. My wife’s choice is to quit and to establish her own laundry shop.

And so she did… CNN Soapbox Laundry Shop was officially opened on May 5, 2014.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and it is dressed like work.
