Mark Kennedy is the author of the book Secrets Of The Carpet Cleaning Super-Giants, which details the systems he used to boost the growth of more than 43 of the largest cleaning companies in the U.S. His “Levels of Success” program is his version of the same systems for small to mid-size companies.
Lisa Wagner owns one of the nation’s top rug wash facilities, and has trained and helped established rug cleaning operations across the U.S. and Canada. She also was a strategic marketing consultant and business coach for Piranha Marketing for 12 years.
