TRS 010: How to Run a Cleaning Business as a Digital Nomad with Neel Parekh from MaidThis

Neel Parekh is the CEO and founder of MaidThis which is a West Coast-based cleaning company specifically focused on the AirBnB market. MaidThis employs cleaners who go to AirBnB properties and cleans them in preparation for the next guest. The reason this is so incredible is that even though this is very much an “in person” type of business Neel has been able to structure it in such a way that a lot of his staff are still distributed, and he has been able to run this business over the last few years while traveling around the world.
