We had the good fortune of connecting with Sheema Atta and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sheema, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
It is different for everyone. It is a “choice” that you make for yourself. You can never keep going for long if it is forced on you. It is better to give up at times and other times giving up is not even a choice.
Its not about being weak or strong it is only about you being honest with yourself.
Ask yourself; What is at stake. What is making you happy? What is making you unhappy? What would be your next step if not this? Most importantly Why did you get into in the first place?
Do you still get butterflies thinking about it? Does it excite you and gives you energy? Does it make you want to get back at it tomorrow? Then my advice is don’t give up. There is still something in there for you.
Sometimes it is hard to give up but giving up is the best decision for you. Again, ask yourself the same questions and you will get your answers.
If you are still confused after asking yourself these questions, then keep going at it for a while and you will figure out what you want in some time.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
You may heard of several cleaning companies, so let me point out the one advantage that no other cleaning company offers… The Two Maids Pay for Performance Plan – allows customer feedback to directly determine our employees’ compensation level! You rate our service every time we clean and that eliminates the age-old problem of your cleaning service getting worse and worse over time. This is a constant feedback as well as check and balance system.
We have won many awards and been featured on CNBC, Magazine Inc., CNN Money, Reader’s Digest and many more…
We truly strive to be “a maid service worth talking about!”
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh Houston/Sugar Land and surrounding area is hub of food and culture. Our trip would definitely exploring the Space Center , visiting Downtown Aquarium and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. During winter the Houston Zoo is the place to visit and enjoy the lights. And when it comes to eating then Houston/Sugar Land gives a taste of all cuisines from Texas BBQ to Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Indian/Pakistani, Mediterranean and oh the crawfish season! You get it all here!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Oh Yes! First shout out to God! May He always be this kind to us and bless us!
My husband who is equal part of the business, he is the wall that keeps us all safe and sane, my problem solver! We wont be where we are without him.
