In 2005, Natalie left her job at a film and television studio in order to pursue a possible career advancement opportunity. Unfortunately, things fell through and Natalie found herself wondering what would happen.
“Instead of drowning in uncertainty, I decided it was a good time to start a small business that I could get up and running,” she said.
As a result of her new business endeavor, Happy 2 Help U was born. For eight years now, Natalie has operated from a spare room in her house. She is currently looking to grow and expand her business into her two-car garage. Natalie is looking for a $5,000 loan in order to be able to continue her dream of running her cleaning service business. The funds will be used for Internet advertising and marketing to the local community, and to bring in extra office support.
With a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Cal State Dominguez Hills and over 15 years of experience in the field, Natalie feels that her Happy 2 Help U Cleaning Service is poised for success.
